Two Mansfield businesses are hoping for success after being shortlisted for the Midlands Business Awards 2014.

Hall-Fast Industrial Supplies is aiming for a third successive Midlands Exporter of the Year title after carrying it off in 2012 and 2013, while networking group Mansfield 2020 is in the final four for the accolade of the Midlands Business Club of the Year. The winners will be announced at a gala ceremony on Friday 28 February 2014 at the NEC Hilton Metropole Hotel.

Hall-Fast stocks more than a million items at any one time, covering 175,000 product areas from the smallest fastener to large items of plant. It operates worldwide and supplies products into 78 export regions.  Malcolm Hall, Managing Director at Hall-Fast is an Invest Ashfield & Mansfield AMbassador and this successful business is also featured on our case studies page.

Mansfield 2020 is one of the longest-established business community networking groups in the area, with more than 170 members covering a multitude of business expertise and knowledge. It prides itself on its focus of improving the town and its business community and meets on a monthly cycle.  Further information on Mansfield 2020 can be found on their website.

Harj Sandher, of Leamington Spa-based UK Special Events which organises the awards event, said: “These are highly challenging economic times but still the entrepreneurial spirit of the Midlands shines through. These awards appeal to a wide range of companies and individuals and are our way of celebrating the best of the region.  Each year we unearth some new stars and the ingenuity of the participants is often staggering.”

To make it to the final, all the contenders have had to meet a panel of judges to put their case for being named the top performer in their particular category.
