Alan Black, founder of Sound Leisure, has been named as one of the top 100 manufacturers in the country.

The Manufacturer Top 100 project, compiled by The Manufacturer magazine,  began in 2014 with an aim to dispel the myths surrounding the image of manufacturing and to provide a platform to publicly identify dynamic leaders and innovators in the industry.Coinslot Alan Black Sound Leisure

“I am very honoured to receive this recognition for manufacturing,” Black said. “Together with my family and colleagues, we have worked
hard to promote engineering and manufacturing to youngsters in our area, so that they can understand what an exciting career it can be. To be considered as one of the top 100 manufacturers in the country is incredible for Sound Leisure and everyone who works for us.”

Shortlisted individuals were nominated by the magazine’s readers, the wider industrial community and the public, for their contributions in changing the face of the industry. The final list was then decided by an expert panel of judges from academia and industry.

“In a fast-moving global economy, which is seeing market forces and costs rebalancing internationally, to have an organisation like The Manufacturer forcing the debate on manufacturing prowess in the UK is vital,” said Alan Foster of Mclaren Automotive, one of last year’s winner and this year’s judges. “Striving to provide young people with manufacturing excellence role models is a vital 
initiative.”
