On the evening of May 10th, Derek Lane & Co (amongst more than 180 other guests) attended the 21st North Devon Manufacturing Awards Ceremony: an event designed by the North Devon Manufacturer’s Association to showcase the best in manufacturing within the region. Professionals from across Devon gathered at the Barnstaple Hotel for a night of celebrating local manufacturing present and future with categories spanning from the year’s best manufacturer to local education’s best apprentice.
As well as being members of the NDMA, Derek Lane & Co were privileged to be special guests of a new South West: a recruitment consultancy specialising in engineering who were sponsoring the event.
