British Engineering Excellence Awards 2020

The British Engineering Excellence Awards celebrate the best of design engineering in the UK from 2019-2020. Clearly, this has been an unusual time and this ceremony reflects that. However, we have been determined all along to ensure that excellence was recognised regardless.

"LG Motion are very proud sponsors of the Design Team of the Year award. We are sponsoring this award because we feel it is important to recognise the massive effect that innovative design can make to the industrial prosperity of UK manufacturing. UK companies are often competing against much larger multinationals and have to maintain a high degree of flexibility in order to be able to adapt to the rapidly changing demands of the customer...

Gary Livingstone, LG Motion

...There is such a wealth of design talent in the UK which offers an important advantage over often larger and more rigidly structured organisations. This also provides an important training ground for developing and encouraging a new generation of engineering, design and manufacturing staff in order to future protect our proud industrial heritage"

Gary Livingstone, LG Motion

"Celebrating excellence in engineering is crucial in the quest to educate and inspire aspiring engineers. The BEEAs play an important part in this, and as passionate ambassadors for innovation and excellence in engineering, we are proud to be supporting the young design engineer category each year. The objective of the BEEAs is closely aligned with our own ethos to promote STEM uptake and champion innovation, and to secure the future of engineering in the UK."

Mike Bray, Vice President, DesignSpark

"For the third consecutive year, Goodfellow is honoured to sponsor the Materials Application of the Year award in the BEEAs. We are inspired by the ingenuity and vision of the engineers we recognise with this award, and indeed by all engineers whose skill and enthusiasm result in applications that provide countless benefits to industry and society...


...While Goodfellow aims to facilitate innovation in many areas of science and engineering, we are delighted that these engineering professionals have taken the critical next step of directly contributing to scientific progress."

Marcus Greenhill, Emerging Business Director, EMEA at Analog Devices.

...As we enter a new technological era, the opportunities for all businesses, large and small are huge, but through their innovation and creativity, UK based start-ups and small companies are helping to create a future we can’t yet even imagine, and who wouldn’t want to be part of that journey to change the world?”

Marcus Greenhill, Emerging Business Director, EMEA at Analog Devices.

"MiniTec are very proud sponsors of the Mechanical Product of the Year. This award provides important focus to the huge contribution mechanical products make to the industrial prosperity of UK manufacturing. We are pleased to be able to recognise and acknowledge the skill and talent that goes into developing the application and best use of the right materials for a product. Seeing products such as these come to fruition is essential for both the success of our existing product engineering, design and manufacturing staff and also encourages a new generation to continue to keep UK manufacturing at the forefront of industry developments.”

Gary Livingstone, MiniTec
