Hiley chosen for national initiative

Hiley Engineering, which designs conveyor integration systems for the food industry, has been nominated for the Government’s high profile ‘Made by Britain’ initiative by Halifax Labour MP Linda Riordan.

Recently launched by Business Secretary Vince Cable, the ‘Made by Britain’ project takes its inspiration from the Great Exhibition of 1851.

Each of the UK’s 650 MPs have been challenged to search for examples of manufacturing ingenuity and innovation in their constituencies, decide upon the leading candidate and nominate them for the scheme.

Initially, MPs’ nominations will be shown on an online interactive map, with a view to expanding the project, possibly with a major exhibition, to coincide with next year’s Olympics and Diamond Jubilee.

“We feel incredibly proud to have been nominated as Linda Riordan’s choice for the ‘Made by Britain’ project,” said Mark Hiley, managing director of Hiley Engineering.
