FP Awards voting closes

06 May 2011

The votes are in -- most categories were very tightly contested -- but you'll have to wait until the evening of 23 June at the Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire to find out who all the winners were

The second year of online voting ended on 28 April with several very close finishes but the results will be released only on the evening of 23 June at the Hinckley Island Hotel.

This is the night of the Food Processing Awards -- and this year's gala reception promises to be bigger and better than ever before. There have been some outstanding categories, which have threatened to be tightly fought over. None of them disappointed.

As usual, Company of the Year was a humdinger. This year it included BHJ UK, Festo, Werma and Winkworth Group, all worthy contenders, fighting for the chance to win one of Food Processing Awards' most coveted titles.

There was also a keen battle in the Robotics & Automation category -- this was hotly contested by KUKA, Loma Systems, Moody Automation, Pacepacker Services and Western Mechanical Handling Automation.

Another big contest was in the Technological Development category where last year's winner of Company of the Year, Bosch Rexroth did battle with Atlas Copco Compressors, Burkert, Cablofil and Mitsubishi Electric.

Then there was the Energy Management category which incorporated Cool Energy, Heraeus Noblelight, IsoCool, Next Control Systems and Spirax Sarco. This was another very tight contest.

Also tightly fought over was Packaging Solutions - Endoline Machinery, Ishida Europe, Linpac Allibert, PFM Packaging Machinery are all finalists in Packaging, and were joined by the only company this year to be in two categories, Heraeus Noblelight.
