In determining the winner, the judges considered a number of factors including the level of exports in relation to the size of the company as well as any barriers that the business has had to overcome.
Speaking about our award win, Simon Hannar, Managing Director, and founder of the PPE business said: “We are thrilled to have received acknowledgement for our exporting efforts. It is even more rewarding to receive such recognition as PPE continues to grow the business and our exporting activities during the last couple of years whilst the oil and gas industry has been particularly turbulent.
“We believe we have been successful in doing so as we have extensive experience coupled with a team of technical specialists in a particularly niche field. We have built a strong reputation for delivering the highest quality solutions that are tailor made to our clients’ needs and have very much become the go to provider in our field.”
The industry is changing and, as such, we have become well equipped to overcome challenges that we may potentially face as a worldwide supplier. We are now seeing an increased demand for large full turnkey solutions and this is great for us as we have the full capabilities to deliver complete end to end projects from concept and manufacture through to factory testing and deployment on site.
As such, we can see the business continuing to grow – both in the UK and on a global scale – through winning such projects and we are delighted to have a healthy pipeline of work for the rest of the year.
We were crowned winners in the Teesside heats and will join nano-purification solutions Ltd, winner of the Northumberland and Tyneside heats and Katy Sue Designs Ltd, winner of the Durham, Sunderland and South Tyneside heats at the grand final in May.
Stay tuned for the results!
