Happy faces at Axon Towers this week after we scooped Business of the Year 2014: Turnover £1M – £5Million at the prestigious North East Cheshire Business Awards.
The glitzy ceremony took place at The Mere in Knutsford and was attended by over 400 business people from across Cheshire. According to awards officials this year received a record number of entries with fierce competition, so it’s fair to say we’re chuffed to bits to have come away with such an esteemed award.
Our category saw us up against two highly successful local businesses, Collect a Case Ltd and Topspeed Couriers, but the judges explained that our recent rapid growth, development of cloud applications and business technology solutions combined with our dedicated team and strategic plans for future growth helped us to clinch the top spot.
Congratulations to all the winners and well done to the finalists. And huge thanks to everyone that’s supported us over the past year, and to the North East Business Awards team, Macclesfield Chamber of Commerce and all the sponsors for putting on such a good show.
