Northern Automotive Alliance Awards show the strength of the manufacturing base in the Northern Powerhouse
The winners of the Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA) Awards 2015 provide a clear demonstration that the automotive industry in the Northern Powerhouse area is making a significant and growing contribution to the regional – and national – economy.
The NAA Awards took place in Cheshire on 12th November 2015, featuring keynote speaker Mike Hawes, Chief Executive, Society of Motor
Manufacturers and Traders Ltd (SMMT), with an audience of 300 members of the Northern and national automotive community.
The event also marked the expansion of the Northwest Automotive Alliance to the Northern Automotive Alliance. The core area covered by the NAA now includes the whole of the M62 corridor, ensuring all automotive companies within the Northern Powerhouse have access to a local network.
The NAA Awards event, sponsored by Bentley Motors, with additional sponsors STRIVE (Simulation Tools for Rapid Innovation in Vehicle Engineering) and TWISTER (Titanium Wire for Innovative Spring Technologies and Emissions Reduction), showcased the successes of the vehicle manufacturers and supply chain companies in the region.
