We were honoured to take Gold in the ‘Innovation of the Year’ category at the national finals of the Make UK Manufacturing Awards in January. This latest accolade follows Plumis’ success at the southern regional finals in October, where we were named ‘SME of the Year’ and won ‘Innovation of the Year’ for our groundbreaking Automist fire suppression system.

Plumis are Make UK National Manufacturing Award Winners

The annual awards celebrate the best in British manufacturing, comprising regional winners from each category, with the overall victors being revealed in a national online ceremony. Make UK gave recognition to those who have shown creativity, dedication and resilience whilst doing exceptional work to provide better solutions to real-world problems, during what has been a challenging year for many in the industry.

Judges praised Plumis’ reinvention of the traditional fire sprinkler and spoke about the company’s rapid growth, as we develop our solutions to meet the needs of new markets.

Make UK judges said: “Plumis is an innovative British engineering company that has shown impressive revenue growth from its life-saving product, and their customer base looks set to expand. They deserve the greatest of praise for the progress they’re making.”

William Makant, our CEO and Co-Founder, was delighted to receive the award and commented that: “Winning this national award is a testament to our team’s hard work and commitment to taking a fresh approach to addressing the challenges of keeping people safe from fire in their homes.”

“We formed Plumis with the aim of creating a more effective alternative to traditional fire sprinkler systems and we will continue to innovate as we evolve our products further.”

Jim Davison, Regional Director for Make UK in the South, said, “I must congratulate Plumis on winning this award for the significant, innovative steps that they’ve made. It’s clear they’ve prioritised research and development, and they are now seeing the benefits. Organisations like Plumis really are trailblazers for the sector and I hope other manufacturers take a leaf out of their book.”
