Minelco recently proved a cut above the rest at this year’s Lincolnshire Business Awards where against serious competition the company won the ‘North Lincolnshire Economic Investment Award’.
The Queen’s diamond jubilee themed award ceremony took place on the 18th May at Grimsby Auditorium and was attended by 500+ guests 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’, continually contributing to North Lincolnshire’s future growth and development.
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 enabling us to absorb more business and respond faster to customers.
