Armac Martin - Winners of Excellence in Industry 2019

Armac Martin - Winners of Excellence in Industry 2019 - Armac Martin

On Thursday the 7th of November 2019, our team attended the prestigious Birmingham Business Excellence Awards. Partnered with the Metro, the awards celebrate success, recognise achievement and highlight innovative companies and people all across the region. 

Winner – Excellence in Industry 2019

We’re thrilled to share that for 2019, Armac Martin has won the esteemed Excellence in Industry Award. This award acknowledges companies making strides in their field, be it manufacturing, technology or science, whilst continuing to strengthen the regional economy.  Birmingham is renowned for its manufacturing roots and since launching in 1929, Armac Martin has continued its commitment to manufacturing each of our luxury solid brass hardware products in-house harnessing skills passed down from generation to generation.

The award also appraises both a company’s products and services, alongside noting how they uphold the traditions of the local area. Commenting on the win, Armac Martin Commercial Director, Richard McGrail said, ‘We are extremely proud to win this award, especially as we celebrate our 90th year in business. Manufacturing is at the heart of Armac Martin and to be recognised for all our hard work within the sector is such an honour and achievement for our dedicated team.’

Finalist – Family Business of the Year 2019

Alongside the award win, Armac Martin also placed as a finalist for Family Business of the Year 2019. Since our founder Harold McGrail retired, Armac Martin remains a private family business and is now proudly in its fourth-generation. Our reputation is built upon heritage and so this is a particularly special moment for everyone.
