Mastenbroek's success in putting its home town on the international map has been recognised today!
The company was revealed as the joint winner of the Putting Boston on the Map category in the Made in Boston Awards.
Organised by Boston College, the awards seek to recognise and celebrate the success of local companies.
Mastenbroek, which exports self-propelled trenchers for use in agriculture and construction projects around the world, shared the award with JDM Food Group, which was praised for raising the profile of Boston in the UK.
As well as Mastenbroek's export success over recent years, becoming a market leader in its field, the judges also highlighted the company's commitment to recruiting, training and retaining apprentices and for its support to the college's Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics initiatives.
"It is great that our efforts have been recognised in the Made In Boston awards," said Christopher Pett, general manager at Mastenbroek. "We take great pride in how we recruit and give all of our employees the training and opportunities that they need to progress within the company. We have had several good years recently and have seen exports grow above expectations, which is very pleasing. We've always promoted the fact that our machines are designed and built here in Boston, as UK engineering is seen by many as the best in the world."
Other winners in the awards included Euroflow, Metsa UK and Genfrost with Boston Waterways receiving a special commendation.
As well as the awards the Matt Warman MP hosted an online Q&A session looking at how businesses can benefit from future opportunities including digital.
