Announcing our 2019 shortlist

Announcing our shortlist

With just over a month to go, we are delighted to announce the finalists in the Chemicals Northwest 2019 awards.

The deadline has now passed and the following shortlist represents the high quality of entries we received. In particular we have had an amazing response to the Young Talent category which again demonstrates that our companies are finding great talent and benefitting from real added value. This year it has been agreed that based on the type of roles that our nominees play in their respective companies, two separate awards are to be made. 

Tables and seats are still available for the celebration dinner on the 28th March at The Imperial War Museum North in Manchester, so why not book now! The complete list of finalists are as follows..
