Local companies leave empty handed at the third Slough Business Awards
Poyle once again played host to the Slough Business Awards on Thursday evening. But after winning accolades the last two years, local companies left empty handed.
The third annual Slough Business Awards took place at the Hilton Terminal 5 in Poyle on Thursday evening (23rd March) but there were no awards for businesses based in the east of the borough this year.
Matrix Plastics, based in the Slough Trading Estate, won the Innovation Award Business of the Year for developing an antibacterial coating for chopping boards. The company was also named overall Business of the Year, an award sponsored by Heathrow Airport, which itself was named Corporate Business of the Year.
Over 250 attended the ceremony, paying up to £1,000 a head to attend.
Thirteen awards were given in total. For the full list see the Slough Business Awards website.
Separately, Grundon has been shortlisted – along with six other companies – for the Thames Valley Family Business of the Year Award 2017.
The awards, now in their fifth year, are organised by Family Business United, an organisation that celebrates the family business sector.
The winner announced on 8th June at London’s May Fair Hotel.
