The Printed Cup Company’s chief executive Mark Woodward has been recognised as one of the top 100 role models for manufacturing in the country.

Since founding the business in 2005, Mark has developed the Clitheroe-based company into the fastest manufacturer of bespoke printed cups in the UK. Under Mark’s direction the company has enjoyed exponential growth, quadrupling in size since 2005 and culminating in a 2015 turnover of £2.5m.

With a reputation for his dynamic business approach and dedication to corporate social responsibility, Mark is known for his visionary commitment and passion in investing in people whilst fostering a sense of community in the workplace.

Mark said: “It was a great honour to receive this award, especially considering we have only been manufacturing in Lancashire for only five years. We strive to think outside the box and aim to be different and we believe winning this award has added value to the extraordinary journey they are on.”

The Manufacturer Top 100 provides a platform for the recognition of exceptional individuals in UK manufacturing. Individuals were nominated by readers of The Manufacturer, the wider industrial community and the public.

Max Roberts,the TM Top 100 judge, said: “The individuals showcased in The Manufacturer Top 100 are changing the face of British manufacturing and redefining the industrial landscape as we know it.”
