MEPs International, a leading global steel market intelligence provider, is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the Construction, Property, and Engineering Category at the prestigious Yorkshire and Humberside Family Business Awards 2023. The sponsorship demonstrates MEPs International’s commitment to recognising and celebrating excellence within the region’s family-owned businesses.

The Yorkshire and Humberside Family Business Awards, now in its 2nd year, celebrate the achievements and contributions of family-run businesses in various sectors. The Construction, Property, and Engineering Category acknowledges outstanding accomplishments within these industries and highlights the innovation, craftsmanship, and sustainable practices demonstrated by family businesses operating within the region.

MEPs International, with its extensive experience and expertise, aims to support and encourage the growth and success of family-owned businesses in Yorkshire and Humberside.

In addition to the sponsorship, MEPs International is delighted to offer Jayne Craven, Director, to serve as a distinguished judge for the awards. Jayne’s expertise and experience in the industry will contribute to the fair and impartial evaluation of the participating family businesses, ensuring that the most deserving candidates are recognised for their excellence.

MEPS International director Jayne Craven said: “It is an absolute pleasure to be part of the judging panel for this year’s Yorkshire and Humberside Family Business Awards and for MEPS to sponsor the Construction, Property and Engineering Category.

The team at MEPS know first-hand the benefits that being a family-run business brings to both customers and employees. As a steel market intelligence provider, we’re also very much aware of the challenges that the construction, property and engineering sectors have experienced in recent years and continue to overcome.

Being part of an event that celebrates the family-run businesses from our region that continue to succeed, and helping to ensure they receive the recognition they deserve, is a huge honour. It’s something I’m very much looking forward to.”
