Altham-based The Senator Group has won the title of Manufacturing Business at the recent Red Rose awards.

Businesses from across the county vied for titles across a range of categories, with only the best of the best, as selected by a panel of expert judges, progressing through to the shortlist and a rigorous interview stage before being rewarded for their excellence.

The Senator Group began life 40 years ago, and is now the largest corporate furniture manufacturer in the UK and one of the biggest employers in Lancashire.

The company has continued to invest heavily in its manufacturing facilities.

Last year it spent £1.6m. on new machinery and also expanded its seating site by 21,000sqft to help meet the growing demands on production.

The Senator Group has also committed to spend a further £3m. on additional manufacturing equipment this year, and has increased its workforce year on year.

Robert Mustoe, managing director, said: “Our business is built on people and we work very hard at recruiting and retaining the best. We offer successful apprenticeship and graduate programmes that this year will welcome another 14 fresh young minds to our business.”
