Our CEO Gareth Mobley had reason to celebrate at the recent EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards after being crowned Entrepreneur of the Year for Manufacturing in the North of England.
Held on 23rd June at the Lowry Hotel in Manchester, the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards celebrates entrepreneurs from all industries across the UK.
Steve Varley, chairman and managing partner of EY in the UK and Ireland, said: “EY’s Entrepreneur Of The Year programme is not only a celebration of entrepreneurship, but also builds networks which span the world. It’s not only about winning an award; it’s about growing networks, making contacts and leveraging knowledge.”
The judging panel applauded Solidor for ‘innovating its products and how they are produced’ and singled out Gareth when praising his efforts to ‘raise significant finance from investors along the way’ to support the firm’s growth.
Upon receiving the trophy, Gareth was keen to recognise the contribution of others: “I was thrilled to be nominated as a finalist against such strong competition from all sectors of the economy. This award is a true reflection of all the hard work carried out by our staff, the commitment of our customers and overwhelming support from our partners.
“The future for me is to now realise the considerable potential of DW3 Products Group and to help shape the future direction of our industry and others that we touch.”
This is just one of a number of accolades Gareth and the Solidor Group has received in recent times and we hope it won’t be last.
Speaking of the team, we have lately had two new people join our sales office.
Rebecca Aspin (Internal Sales) and Lucy Jones (Sales and Marketing Executive) are settling into their new roles well and already proving to be fine additions to the workforce.
