A CHORLEY firm has got its second early Christmas present in a matter of weeks.
Having just celebrated the opening of their new £1m manufacturing facility, champagne corks are flying again for NIS Ltd as they were crowned ‘Most Dedicated Employer’, at the STEMNET Awards 2011.
The award was presented to Group Managing Director Richard Penrose at a prestigious ceremony hosted by Lord Sainsbury at the House of Lords.
NIS made it to the final four from 150 nominations of ‘employers that have supported their employees to become an ambassador and then to actively engage through this with their local schools’.
The four finalists, and eventual winner, were then decided by an expert panel of industry judges who told NIS they were ‘incredibly impressed by your dedication to inspiring young people in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM)’.
