Bott has won both the Large Manufacturer and Leadership Award categories in the 2015 Cornwall Manufacturers Group Awards.
The award ceremony at the Merchants Manor in Falmouth attended by over 110 local business professionals and executives, celebrated manufacturing excellence within the region. All entries were subjected to strict judging criteria which included site visits to allow judges to go beneath the surface of businesses and understand the true performance of the companies.
Clive Woodward, Bott CEO said;
“Bott has been part of the Cornwall Manufacturing Group since 2005. We’re a passionate supporter of sharing best practice across the region and pooling resources to support Cornwall’s significant and growing manufacturing economy. Manufacturing supports over 20,000 jobs in our county and the businesses present at these awards make a very significant impact on the Cornish economy. Our growing group has over 40 member companies employing in excess of 3500 employees and is pivotal to the region’s Economic prosperity.
To win the Business Leadership Award was a great honour particularly as it was rigorously evaluated by members and associates of the Group who understand the daily challenges of running successful manufacturing businesses.
Good leadership is nothing without an organisation also having the right people. I’m thankful for the support of a strong and engaged team. Under current Board Leadership our team has, in a spirit of positive co-operation, delivered continual growth from a turnover of £5.5m in 1996 to a projected £42.5m in 2015. In doing so Bott has provided many employment opportunities and delivered a positive social and economic impact in the communities where it operates.
To win the Large Manufacturer award for the 2nd year in a row was real recognition of continued progress in the business. Over the last year we’ve invested significantly in our operations putting in extra capacity to ensure we have the resources to meet burgeoning customer demand.
For the whole Bott team, these awards are a tangible recognition of many years of hard work and commitment to build a strong and vibrant organisation. Our success is founded on delivering products and services which solve customer problems and in building a team with an unrivalled depth of commitment and capability. Having gone through a rigorous evaluation process, winning these awards is a moment of real pride for the whole Bott team. We look forward to building on this achievement and delivering further success”
