Aquaseal Rubber, the Benton-based business, which is part of the Barrier Group, has been shortlisted for the 2016 North Tyneside Business Awards.

The company is one of three finalists in the Manufacturing and Construction category and will compete for the top prize at the final, which takes place on 2 December at Cobalt Business Park.

Aquaseal Rubber will be judged on its adoption on new technology, use of the local supply chain, environmental credentials and the employment opportunities it has created in the area.

Jason Armstrong, Managing Director at Aquaseal Rubber, said: “It’s a great honour to be shortlisted for the award and be recognised for our contribution to the region’s economy.

“Where ever possible we utilise the skills and products of local people and businesses and would encourage others based in the region to follow our lead and contribute to the success of Tyneside.”
