Announced by The Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, HMG was honored with the award after converting alcohol stocks into hand sanitizer during the pandemic.
Based on the World Health Organization's (WHO) recommended formulations, thousands of liters of HMG’s hand sanitizer have been provided to key workers, care providers and charities throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
“It is a tremendous honor to receive this award and a recognition of the work the HMG Paints staff have done throughout this turbulent year," said HMG Paints Ltd Managing Director John Falder, who accepted the award. "Throughout HMG the adaptability and determination of staff has shone through, especially as we switched from making paint to hand sanitizer virtually overnight and doing so in a safe manner. The company of HMG Paints is the people of HMG – and that really is what we’re all about, it is not just the people who work at Riverside Works but the wider HMG family and our community and we’re proud to have been able to assist those in the essential services, frontline workers and charities who have been working tirelessly during the pandemic.”
