Lucite International (LI) recently sponsored the 13th North East of England Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC) Annual Industry Awards, celebrating the achievements of the companies and individuals in the chemicals-processing industries in the North East of England.

With 430 industry guests in attendance, the evening saw £18,000 donated straight to local schools to support STEM activities and foster important links to industry. What’s more, the 18 trophies presented to the winners were made from clear acrylic using methyl methacrylate from LI.

This was the 8th year that LI has sponsored the event and a team of employees in attendance made sure the Company was well represented.

Husain Ameen, Development Manager based at our Cassel, UK site, said:

“Attending the NEPIC Awards was a very insightful experience. It is always great to be part of something that is driving positive initiatives within the industry. It also served as an indication that, despite some headlines, the chemicals industry in the North East is alive and thriving.”
