Mottie Kessler, MD of Banner Chemicals and Chairman and CEO of 2M Holdings said:

‘I am delighted that we have been able to help so many young people learn about and access our industry. I started my own Science career thanks to an industry Work and Study programme and I know that such opportunities can literally change a young person’s life.

‘Banner is a company with over 150 years’ history and based in the UK, it is both a privilege and a duty to support our industry and our country in this way.’

The commendation was given for our efforts to help young people access Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) careers.

We work with schools, disadvantaged students, apprentices and graduates to help them access our industry, both by giving our time and training and by giving them jobs and work placements.
