A well-executed growth strategy together with innovative investments and creative flair has seen Barnsley-based Cutting Technologies scoop the top award at a recent regional awards dinner.
The Sheffield City Region business awards were held at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre, Sheffield, on Thursday, July 3.
The laser cutting and engraving specialists clinched the Top SME/Business award.
On collecting the award, Cutting Technologies’ director Jane Robinson said:
“To be named Top SME in the whole of the Sheffield City Region is a great honour and a credit to the whole Cutting Technologies team.
“They have worked unbelievably hard over the past year to win new business, diversify our offering and ensure our reputation goes before us.
“The calibre of the companies shortlisted was incredibly high so winning this award is superb recognition of the team’s efforts and achievements over the past few years.”
The award was presented to Cutting Technologies by John Collier, chief executive at Pera Consulting, who said:
“I was thrilled to be able to present Cutting Technologies with their Top SME/Business Award, especially as they are one of our Manufacturing Advisory Service clients.
“They’re a perfect example of the many innovative and hardworking companies Pera Consulting has managed to help in the region.
“This is an area full of business vitality and imagination with SMEs capable of driving sales, creating new jobs and breaking into supply chains far beyond the city region.”
The event was hosted by Clare Frisby, BBC Look North presenter and Nick Hewer, star of the BBC1 show The Apprentice.
Cutting Technologies employs 32 people, laser cuts and engraves a mind-boggling range of products for more than 500 clients worldwide.
Its portfolio includes projects for international fashion designers, the University of Manchester and the Paralympics opening and closing ceremonies.
