Sandon Global Engraving Technology Ltd are celebrating success at this year’s British Chamber of Commerce regional awards, Flexotech, EFIA and. Scooping trophies at all 3 is quite an accomplishment against the backdrop of the most challenging environment for global business in a century.
Sandon Global were named “Export Business of the Year” at the St Helens Borough Business Awards held in October. This category recognises businesses that stand out from the crowd on the international stage and demonstrates that they have generated significant and/or sustained increases in their export activity. Sandon Global were praised by the judges for their “impressive and speedy reaction to the challenges of Brexit and their methodical and focussed penetration into new markets.” Sandon Global Engraving Technology Ltd will now be entered into the British Chambers of Commerce National Business Awards, with the finals taking place in London in December.
Richard Millington, Managing Director, said. “I am extremely proud to have received this award, furthermore, given it’s for the 3rd year running it highlights the strength and flexibility of our dedicated and highly skilled team. We are one of many SME’s who have had to adapt to unforeseen and planned changes in the market. Regardless of the political landscape and uncertainty we have spent time researching and challenging our strategies to the point where we have the conviction and skills to build on our ongoing success. Being recognised by the St. Helens Chamber is very humbling but also reassuring that we are on the right path. The next chapter in the history of our business is one that excites, motivates and drives us on.”
Mr. Millington refers to the new 58,000sq.ft. purpose-built factory due to be opened next year. This significant investment includes new plant, equipment, and the R&D capability to launch Sandon Global into the next phase of its ambitious growth plan.
