Spectrum Technologies Wins ‘Innovative Business Of The Year’ At Bridgend Business Forum Awards

Spectrum Technologies is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the title Innovative Business of the Year at the Bridgend Business Forum Awards 2019, announced at the ceremony last Friday evening, 13th September.

In its seventh year, these awards recognise and reward excellence across all sectors in the County Borough. The awards offer a range of categories suited for any organisation to share their success story; from large private and public companies through to thriving entrepreneurial businesses, promising start-ups and established SME’s.

The award ceremony and dinner was held at the Coed-Y-Mwstwr Hotel, Bridgend on Friday. The evening commenced with a red carpet arrival and drinks reception followed by dinner. The evening culminated in the all-important awards ceremony, which was hosted by the BBC television broadcaster and presenter Sian Lloyd.

Spectrum Technologies was represented at the award ceremony by Chris Adkins, Engineering Manager, accompanied by Stephen Daye, Patricia Evans, Marie Hughes and Sana Qazi. Spectrum was congratulated on their performance and contribution to Welsh Business by the Bridgend Councilor Huw David and the Mayor of Bridgend County Borough Council, Cllr Stuart Baldwin.

Dr. Peter Dickinson, CEO at Spectrum, said: “We are delighted to receive this award. As we export over 95% of the output from our factory in Bridgend we are probably better known by the international aerospace and electronics communities abroad than we are by the business and local communities on our doorstep. This is an important opportunity to raise our profile locally and to let people know what we do and our contribution to the South Wales economy. As a company we have a highly skilled workforce of 56 people in our Bridgend operation, including an expanding team of product development engineers working on leading edge projects. Innovation is key to our business and our future so it is particularly pleasing to be singled out once again as winners of the award for Innovative Business of the Year.”

Spectrum previously won the Innovative Business of the Year Award in 2016. Since the company was founded in 1989, Spectrum has now supplied over 1000 laser wire markers to 52 countries, making it unquestionably the world market leader in the development, design and manufacture and supply of UV laser wire marking equipment.

The company is also pleased to announce that it will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in October 2019. Please see our web site for further information on this milestone achievement throughout 2019.
