There has never been a more important time to value British engineering.

The past 12 months have been challenging for UK businesses to say the least. Businesses of all industries, shapes and sizes have had to adjust traditions, redefine standards and make unimaginable sacrifices. That’s what makes this year especially poignant in our opinion, and we’re incredibly proud to be sponsoring the British Engineering Excellence Awards today, to celebrate excellence in a fantastic sector of British business: engineering and design.

As a leader in the polymer industry, we understand and respect the momentous pressure that engineers and designers face in their roles. 2021 and beyond maps out an exciting yet testing landscape in British engineering, with sustainability, innovation and technology being crucial elements to master in order to make an impactful and successful product.

We very much look forward to recognising and rewarding those who are really making a difference, and we congratulate them all sincerely.

The way engineering and manufacturing have stepped up during the Covid-19 pandemic to address shortages of medical and protective equipment has been truly inspiring.

As the UK’s largest publisher of engineering titles, MA Business is determined that this contribution should never be forgotten. That’s why we have brought together all of our engineering brands to launch Engineering Heroes, in which we will celebrate the people, companies and technologies that have made up engineering’s massive contribution during this time.

Later this year, we will publish a special supplement that tells these stories and honours the people behind them. In the meantime, however, we will use this website and this brand to keep telling the story of UK engineering’s role in the response to Covid-19.

We want you to be involved. If your company has played a role we want to hear about it. To tell us, either click the button below or submit a story here. Equally, if you want to support the campaign to keep engineering’s contribution in the public eye, go to the button below or click here. It costs nothing, but it will help to keep these stories in the public eye.

We hope you will be part of it.
