In the last few months we’ve been asking all of you to keep your fingers crossed and support our entry in The Sentinel Business Awards. As Accutronics was amongst the three finalists in the Small Business of the Year category, we were invited to the awards ceremony at the impressive King’s Hall in Stoke on March 27.

Rob Phillips accepted the trophy and thanked everybody at Accutronics for their input and dedication. “I thought the competition was well organised and that the ceremony was impressive,” said Rob. “The night reflected well on Staffordshire and the success of the businesses in the area.
“The awards are a celebration of business excellence, innovation and dynamism. There were representatives from various sectors and industries, all of whom are on top of their game and deserved to be acknowledged for their accomplishments.
“As Accutronics is only a couple of years old, receiving formal recognition from other business leaders really endorses the work we are trying to do. This will help attract new customers and reinforce the quality message, whilst also reaffirming our position as a British manufacturer.
“In all honesty I didn’t expect us to win, only because this was our first attempt. Just being shortlisted felt like a success. We’ve received a lot of attention from the media as a result and at the awards dinner, our video profile was shown to hundreds of people.
“The entire project gives everyone at Accutronics real reason to feel proud and has already impacted on all of our morale. Winning the small business of the year award is a great achievement and from now on awards will become part of our benchmarking for continuous improvement. Congratulations everybody and well done!”
