Amazon Filters has been named Manufacturer of the Year at the Made in the South East Awards, amidst strong competition from companies in a range of industries.

Judges said the win reflected an outstanding contribution to the region’s manufacturing sector with a clear demonstration of “excellence, sales growth, increased exports and regional economic impact.”

They said they were impressed with the significant investment programme the company has embarked on, “which has enhanced its ability to deliver large volumes of cartridges in response to orders from sectors including municipal water, oil and gas, chemicals and coatings, and healthcare.”

The judging panel, which included experts in export finance and corporate growth, was also impressed with the many indirect ways Amazon Filters is supporting the Covid-19 effort. For example, their filters are used in the inks that supply the printers used to mark sell-by dates on foods and medicines.

Neil Pizzey, Amazon Filters managing director, said: “Being named Manufacturer of the Year is testament to the dedication and hard work of our team in what has been the most extraordinary 12 months for economies around the world.”
