A Salford-based manufacturing business has recently been awarded a Kings Award.

The company, Metalube, produces and sells industrial lubricants to over 100 countries worldwide from its Irlam headquarters on Huntsman Drive.

The Lord-Lieutenant of Greater Manchester, Mrs Diane Hawkins JP LLB visited Metalube’s Irlam headquarters last week to hand over the Kings Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2023.

This is Metalube’s third award of this type, being one of only three other businesses in the Northwest to have received this accolade.

The 2023 King’s Award particularly recognises steady growth in international exports. Metalube has been recognised for outstanding continuous growth in overseas sales over the past five years.
