RS, a trading brand of RS Group plc (LSE: RS1), a global provider of product and service solutions, today announced its placement on the shortlist for the MAKE UK Manufacturing awards 2023 in the Midlands and East regions.

The MAKE UK awards took place recently in Birmingham and recognised organisations in categories like health and safety, innovation and sustainability.

Greg Sharp, industry sector manager at RS UK&I, said: “While RS is not a manufacturer, we have strong connections with the manufacturing community in our customer and supplier relationships and our services in condition-based monitoring, as well as predictive and proactive maintenance.

“By adding value to our offer, we further support the manufacturing professionals to help them overcome their challenges and meet their objectives. This means we often look beyond industry demands to how we can benefit communities and drive social value.

“We are extremely proud of our achievements in energy reduction and sustainability within our organisation and our customers. To be shortlisted by Make UK as a regional finalist for the Energy and Sustainability Category demonstrates the impact and importance of the work we are doing.”

Although RS didn’t make the top spot this time, Greg and members of the ESG team were there to celebrate and congratulate the winners of this prestigious award.
