Craig Mackinlay, the MP for South Thanet, has nominated Blaze Signs for the national All Party Parliamentary Group for Corporate Responsibility annual award.
Blaze Signs has its Head Office on Pysons Road Industrial Estate, Broadstairs, and employs 200 local people at its main production site across design and manufacture. The company operates nationally as a specialist in digital printing and for bespoke manufacture of signage for national brands such as Sainsbury’s, Tesco, the Co-operative Group, Metro Bank – and were signage partners for the 2012 London Olympics.
The MP proposed Blaze Signs for the national award primarily because of its commitment to its Apprenticeship scheme, working closely with East Kent College.
Craig Mackinlay MP commented:
“It was a pleasure to meet with Clive Knight the Managing Director and present the company with a national nomination for this prestigious award.
“I am hugely impressed with Blaze Signs’ roots in the local area and their work with East Kent College in promoting its apprenticeship scheme.
“The company recognises local skills shortages and is committed to training and enhancing local opportunities.”
Clive Knight, Director of Blaze Signs, added:
“We are delighted to be put forward for this award. We are committed to the local area and our apprenticeship programme.
“Craig has always shown a great interest in our operations and has supported us across many corporate issues that we have faced, taking our voice to the heart of government.”
