Hyperdrive has won Manufacturer of the Year (under £25m) at the Made in the North East Awards 2019.

Sponsored by Barclays and Womble Bond Dickinson, the event showcases manufacturers that are producing world-class products in new and innovative ways.

The Awards Dinner took place on Thursday 17th October at Hardwick Hall in County Durham with over 300 people in attendance.

Chris Pennison, CEO, commented, “To win Manufacturer of the year is a huge achievement for our team after successfully launching HYVE earlier this year. We now have the capability to manufacture 30,000 battery packs per year and support global customers such as JCB, all from our site here in Sunderland. The Awards are a brilliant opportunity to celebrate the north east business community and showcase our talent on a national scale.”

As a regional winner, Hyperdrive will automatically be enrolled into the Made in the UK Awards which will take place in Summer 2020.
