WDS Components has been named regional winner for the ‘Small Medium Enterprise (SME) of the Year in the Northeast, Yorkshire and Humberside’ category at the MAKE UK Manufacturing Awards 2023. 

WDS Components said that the award recognised its commitment to excellence in the manufacturing sector, where, over the past two years, it has invested in its people, training, new machinery, stockholding and an enhanced online presence. These collective efforts, the company stated, have not only optimised its operational efficiency, but also reinforced its position in the engineering and manufacturing industry.

Founded over 70 years ago, WDS Components is known for its innovation, reliability and extensive range of quality manufactured engineering parts. Mark Moody, sales and marketing director at WDS, explains: “To be recognised among such esteemed companies is truly an honour. This award is not just for WDS Components, but for every member of our team whose hard work and dedication have made this possible.”

The company has been shortlisted in the national awards, where it is hopeful such an accolade will enhance its brand value and recognition in the wider manufacturing landscape.
