Contact celebrates a duo of Tameside Business Awards shortlistings

Our team is celebrating after being shortlisted for two categories at the Tameside Business Awards 2024. The awards put success and innovation in the spotlight to highlight businesses in the Tameside region of Manchester that are making a difference on the global stage.

Contact has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Manufacturing/Engineering Business of the Year, and Sustainable Business of the Year categories. The award ceremony takes place on 28th March in Ashton-under-Lyne, where our team will find out whether the business has scooped gold.

As a major name in prepress and reprographics, serving the corrugated packaging, flexible packaging and label industries, Contact Originators operates internationally, while maintaining its proud Northern roots and ‘get the job done’ ethos.

Steve Mulcahy, our CEO, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted in two categories at the Tameside Business Awards 2024. While we operate across the UK and are expanding further into Europe, we’re extremely proud of our heritage and to be an example of a local business making a global impact. Contact is a business that has faced a lot of adversity, so making the finals means a great deal to our team both professionally and personally. They say a business is only as good as its people, and we’re a prime example of that.

“We strive to always focus on business excellence, which is reflected in the services we offer and the products we supply. We are also being recognised for our efforts in supporting sustainability, not just within our own business but how we use our expertise to make the wider printing and packaging market more ecologically conscious. We wish all our fellow finalists the best of luck, and we cannot wait to celebrate our local business community’s success at the Tameside Business Awards 2024.”
