As an exceptional year for award wins draws to a close, staff and directors at Nuaire are celebrating recognition a little closer to home. The Welsh ventilation manufacturer won both Business of the Year and the Winner of Winners title at the Caerphilly Business Forum Awards 2014, confirming the company as one of the most successful businesses in the county.
Now in its 13th year, the awards are open to businesses of all sizes and sectors within the Borough of Caerphilly. The formal black tie awards dinner was held at Bryn Meadows Hotel, supported by sponsors including Norgine, Coleg Gwent and the Welsh Government. Nuaire was nominated for Business of the Year, for companies with over 25 employees; a category sponsored by Finance Wales. The company was later presented with the Premier Winner award in recognition of its outstanding performance and impressive growth in recent years.
Marketing Director, Andy Mudie was delighted to accept both awards on the night. He said:
"It was the first time we’d entered the awards and it is great recognition for the staff here. We’ve gone from a small family business to a large company with a turnover of £55m, and still growing at an enormous rate. Winning the Business of the Year award in a highly respected local award is a fitting end to what has been a record year of achievements for the company.
"Going on to win the ‘Premier Award’ as the most impressive entrant overall was the icing on the cake at Friday evening’s awards dinner. As a long-standing local employer with a great many of our staff Caerphilly residents, it gives us a real sense of local pride to be presented with these two coveted awards."
