Domino Printing celebrates dual success at regional Make UK Awards 2021

October 15, 2021

A Cambridge company is celebrating a successful evening at the regional Make UK Manufacturing Awards 2021, taking home awards in two prestigious categories.

Domino Printing was nominated in four separate categories this year, including Health and Safety, Developing Future Talent, Business Growth & Strategy and Innovation.

At the regional awards for the Midlands and East, held at the University of Warwick and in person for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the team walked away with the Health and Safety accolade, and the runner-up prize for Developing Future Talent.

The Make UK Health and Safety Award recognises progress in improving the occupational health and safety culture of a workplace. Domino was awarded this accolade for its in-house development of two new systems – a QR-code-driven reporting tool allowing instant reporting of incidents or ‘areas for improvement’ as and when they are noted by employees, and an intuitive database for accurate assessment of hazardous substances.

The Award for Developing Future Talent commends businesses which promote diversity, develop talent, and build skills among employees. Domino was awarded the runner-up prize in this category for its commitment to building in-house expertise through continual learning and development, as well as ongoing projects to ‘make Domino a great place to work’.

Carl Haycock, UK Printer Operations Director at Domino, says: “It was a real privilege  to be together in person once again with so many great manufacturing companies. I am delighted that Domino was able to get up on the stage twice and showcase our brand – this is a real credit to the work the whole team has done in the areas of both health and safety and talent development.”

Charlotte Horobin, Region Director for Make UK in the Midlands and East of England, added: “These awards are a testament to the dynamic companies and individuals working within engineering and manufacturing. The sector remains at the heart of creating wealth in the East of England and as we re-build our economy, there will be a bright future for companies and individuals that make the most of their talent.”
