National acclaim for North East Company of the Year

Washington-headquartered Omega Plastics has been recognised at national level by the British Chambers of Commerce after an outstanding year of achievement.

The company is a finalist in the High Growth Business of the Year category and will be representing the North of England at the prestigious Chamber Business Awards in London on Thursday.

Each year, organisations large and small from across the UK compete for the coveted titles and the national recognition they bring.

Dave Crone, group managing director at the Omega Plastics Group (OPG), said: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted to receive the High Growth Business of the Year award at the Chamber Business Awards.

“Winning the North East Company of the Year award really bolstered our business and as a direct result, we have been able to compete for and win key new business with a number of blue chip organisations.

“Our successes have enabled us to grow the business organically, creating a number of new job roles at our factories in Washington and Hartlepool and allowing us to invest in new, state-of-the-art machinery for our facility in Blyth.

“If we are successful at the Chamber Business Awards, we hope to take full advantage of the opportunities this increased profile will provide and continue on our growth trajectory for the year ahead.”

Specialists in plastic injection moulding and rapid tooling, the Omega Plastics Group has enjoyed an exceptional year in business. Providing full turn key solutions for businesses across the automotive, medical and FMCG sectors, scooping the North East Company of the Year title at The Journal North East Business Awards has seen orders boom for the manufacturer, which also operates sites in Hartlepool and Blyth.
