Forgemasters chief executive Dr Graham Honeyman said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be selected to represent the United Kingdom in these prestigious awards.
“The awards showcase some of the best businesses across Europe and it is an honour to be amongst some of the greats, and to recognise Forgemasters as one of the leading organisations in our country and in the engineering field.
“We’re looking forward to the next round of the competition where we’ll be competing across Europe to receive a Ruban d’Honneur and hopefully win the category for The HSBC Import/Export Award.”
