The awards, run by The Richmond and Twickenham Times and Richmond Borough Chamber of Commerce, are a celebration of the absolute best of business in the borough from small independents to the multinationals and charities.
On receiving the award David Hawkins commented “This is the first time we have entered the Richmond Business Awards and I was thrilled with the result, especially as this is our 40th Anniversary year. We have worked hard on our exports over the years and it is satisfying to be recognised for our successes as a local business. Undoubtedly this reinforces the confidence in our business and our strategy for exporting. Our original focus was on Ireland but we intend using the experience gained to make greater inroads into Europe, Asia and the US. We are also looking to expand our current site to further contribute to the rich landscape of scientific excellence available in Teddington.”
