Cotswold Life EMI Awards 2015

Waterless Limited spent the evening of September 17th at the first ever Cotswold Life Engineering, Manufacturing and Innovation Awards. It was a black- tie event that was attended by the great and the entrepreneurial business from across the regions manufacturing industry.

Why celebrate?

Some may ask why celebrate manufacturing, but here in the Cotswold’s we have been shaped by a manufacturing heritage. Especially where Waterless Limited is based in Stroud, industry has been a part of our local environment for a thousand years, but it is the Stroud Valleys’ legacy as one of the country’s earliest cloth-making areas that has made it unique. It is a legacy which can be traced back at least as far as the 14th century. Our premises, Hope Mill was last used as a Boat Makers until 1937 by Abdela & Mitchell, to read more on our sites heritage click here. This manufacturing passion has stayed with us here at Waterless Limited as we strive to create innovative waterless products to make washing any time or any place possible.

The night itself!

The awards evening was amazing, it was so refreshing to be in a room full of like minded business people. All the companies present deserve recognition in their own right for their ground breaking technologies. The evening was held at Cheltenham Town Hall, a beautiful building dating back to 1902 which explains its beautiful infrastructure. First we were seated at our tables, we were seated with GE Aviation a Cheltenham based company, they made the experience most enjoyable with great conversation, then we ate a delicious 4 course meal. Lee McQueen the winner of The Apprentice (series 4) was the compère of the EMI Awards, it was truly an honour to meet him, such a genuine and intelligent man. After we had eaten, he began to announce the winners. Waterless Limited where finalist for Manufacturing Genius and Technology Innovation of the Year, this came as a huge shock for us as we are such a small company. Unfortunately, we did not win any of our categories, but we were extremely excited and proud to be nominated as finalists.
