Minelco win the prestigious 'North Lincolnshire Economic Investment Award'

Minelco recently proved a cut above the rest at this year’s Lincolnshire Business Awards. We won the ‘North Lincolnshire Economic Investment Award’ against serious competition.

Refractory growth leading

The Queen’s diamond jubilee themed award ceremony took place on the 18th May at Grimsby Auditorium. Around 500+ guests attended from local businesses in Lincolnshire (UK).

Minelco was up against  two other strong Lincolnshire businesses in the category. However, it was the growth of Minelco’s refractory business and the recent investment into the Flixborough site which captivated the council’s awareness. In addition, Minelco’s implementation of utilising local labour and resources whilst importing/exporting overseas demonstrated our company motto of ‘Think Global, Act Local’.,With this we continually contribute to North Lincolnshire’s future growth and development.

An impressive result

Being crowned the winner of this prestigious award is particularly impressive due to there being very few businesses from the manufacturing industry in the award categories.  Minelco really is pushing the boundaries in both the industrial minerals industry and the local economy as a whole.  

Once complete this brand new facility will significantly increase the production capacity for our refractory minerals. It will enable us to absorb more business and respond faster to customers.
