Fellow Manufacturers Place Gripple at the Top

30th April 2013

Gripple, the manufacturer based in Sheffield - its 'birth' city - has added yet another accolade to its already outstanding haul of awards, thanks to several of its peers in the region.

Made in Sheffield, the partnership between the area's world-class manufacturers - including Gripple - dedicated to promoting the Sheffield brand, has awarded its top award to the company which continues to achieve global success with its iconic wire joiner and tensioner. Broadcaster Justin Webb, who compered the presentation dinner, said: -The companies represented here are creating innovative products which enable customers to excel in numerous fields; they are forging new relationships in emerging markets and addressing the future by nurturing apprentices who will form their next generation of skilled technicians. The judging panel comprised influential representatives from other manufacturers and heads of prominent commercial organisations in the region. One of the judges said: -Congratulations to Gripple. The company truly embraces the concept of Made in Sheffield and even introduced a new word into the English language! The judges also highlighted the work of its 'sister' companies, Loadhog which is revolutionising the transit packaging market, and Incub which works with universities to incubate new businesses. In addition to securing Made in Sheffield's highest award, Gripple was also shortlisted in the Innovation and Exporter of the Year categories.
