The Materials Handling Engineers Association is proud to announce the launch of the MHEA Excellence Awards – designed to celebrate the talent and creativity of its members and the world class capabilities of its member companies.

Free to enter, the awards are open to member companies or individual members who have made an outstanding contribution to the bulk materials handling industry – from ports, power and mining to steel and cement – during 2016.

Application is easy.  Applicants can simply complete the online awards entry form and submit before the closing date of 30 June 2016.

The awards are divided into the following categories:

  • Innovation Award

An award for the introduction of new technology or improved solution in the bulk materials handling industry.

  • Apprentice of the Year

The Apprentice of the Year Award seeks to acknowledge and celebrate an apprentice’s exceptional occupational progress and their contribution to their workplace during their apprenticeship.  To enter, applicants must be based in the UK and have completed or be in an apprenticeship scheme within the last 12 months.

An award acknowledging a project which has achieved significant success through effective management and delivery approaches.  Awards are considered for projects demonstrating excellence, regardless of size in the bulk materials handling industry.

  •  Supplier of the Year

An award recognising exemplary service, performance and customer commitment by a supplier in the bulk materials handling industry.

  • Harold Wright Award

This is the outstanding achievement award.  The special award will be presented to a company or individual who the judges consider has made an outstanding contribution to the bulk materials handling industry.

Applicants may enter more than one category, by submitting an online entry form for each award.

To enter the awards, please complete the entry form and submit no later than 30 June 2016.

Winners will be announced at a gala awards dinner on Wednesday 5 October.  The black tie event will be held at The Majestic Hotel in Harrogate.
