Manchester based HMG Paints have been awarded a UK Business Hero Award from the British Chambers of Commerce. Announced by The Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, HMG received the award after converting alcohol stocks into hand sanitiser, to support locally and nationally, during the pandemic.
Based on World Health Organisation (WHO) recommended formulations, thousands of litres of HMG’s hand sanitiser has been provided to key workers, care providers and charities throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Accepting the award on behalf of HMG Paints Ltd, Managing Director, John Falder said “It is a tremendous honour to receive this award and a recognition of the work the HMG Paints staff have done throughout this turbulent year. Throughout HMG the adaptability and determination of staff has shone through, especially as we switched from making paint to hand sanitiser virtually overnight and doing so in a safe manner.”
