To mark the centenary of the federation of Stoke-on-Trent the Chamber produced two special commemorative pin badges. They depict the current Chamber logo and the Chamber logo as it appeared in 1910.

The badges have been kindly sponsored by Goodwin plc, which has been in business in Stoke-on-Trent since 1883. Today there are 20 companies in the Goodwin Group with a combined turnover in excess of 100m
