SP Services are finalists in the Business of the Year!

The Shropshire Star has now revealed the finalists who will be fighting it out for the eight gongs on offer at this year’s black-tie awards ceremony, which takes place at RAF Cosford on April 23.

The Blue Riband Company Of The Year Award will be contested by Telford’s medical supplies provider SP Services, Prees-based construction outfit Hawk Group, Newtown manufacturer Quartix and e-know, which is also based in Telford.

Judging is set to take place in the next month at all finalist companies ahead of the awards ceremony in April.

Shropshire Star editor Martin Wright said: “We’ve always known that our patch is home to a rich, diverse variety of businesses, and the finalists in the Excellence in Business Awards reflect that beautifully.”

“We will have a huge swathe of expertise when we meet in the startling surroundings of RAF Cosford in the spring, and it’s shaping up to be a fantastic event.”

The top gong on Business of the Year which SP Services is finalist in is fantastic news for the company, which was borne some 26 years ago by Managing Director Steve Bray. Over the years Steve has built a team, product range and service well known and respected within the industry not only regionally and nationally but also internationally, helping put SP, Telford and the UK firmly on the world map as a leader in medical equipment development and innovation.

2014 was an incredible year for the team at SP with growth in export contracts, huge involvement with Ebola relief efforts across the globe and the milestone celebration of a 25 years in business. 2015 is set to be no exception, with innovative new product ranges, digital developments and continued growth across all aspects of the business, SP is not only growing but are actively expanding their employ of locally based apprentices to ensure long-term economical growth and jobs within the region.

Managing Director Steve Bray said of the news “To be short listed as a finalist in the Business of the Year Category is incredible news. When we selected Telford as our logistics hub and head quarters we did so as Telford is situated in the Heart of England, allowing us to service our customers across the country and internationally. When we moved to Bastion House in 2012 it was a £2 million investment from SP Services and it was our intention to send as much of the budget as possible with locally based companies and SMEs to help boost the Shropshire economy. We are looking forward to the awards evening and meeting the other finalists, best of luck to all that have made it through to the final.”

The winners will be announced on Friday 23rd April at Hanger 1 of RAF Cosford awards ceremony. Stay up to date with the awards and the presentation night with SP Services on Facebook and Twitter.
