Business of the Year award for Knutsford firm

By on August 17, 2018

Knutsford’s Packaging Automation has been named Business of the Year at the 2018 E3 Business Awards.

In a ceremony at the Macron Stadium in Bolton, the company saw off competition from businesses across the north west to win the award.

Packaging Automation’s commercial director Sam Ashton said: “We are so proud of our team and our achievements. Sometimes it is hard to see how far we have come when we are in the thick of the day to day and focusing so much on finding things to improve, but being recognised by peers in our industry is fantastic.”


The company designs and manufactures tray sealing and pot filling and sealing machinery.

The award was presented by Andrew Dewhurst, managing director of Affilius Group, representing the award sponsor.
