Sepura Awarded ‘Business of the Year’

Sepura awards

Sepura will be celebrating this week, after the company’s achievements were recognised in two prestigious local business awards.

Wednesday evening saw the company win Business of the Year, the highest accolade at the Business Weekly Awards. Presenting the trophy at a black tie ceremony at Queens’ College, Kevin Calder, of sponsor Mills & Reeve, said that Sepura had "….transformed from a TETRA devices supplier to a geographically and technologically diverse critical communications solutions supplier, with new turnkey products, massive global clients and the world at its feet."

Previous winners of the award include biotechnology company Abcam, genomics research organisation Horizon Discovery, and digital inkjet technology manufacturer, Xaar plc.

Last night, Sepura’s CEO, Gordon Watling, was awarded Business Person of the Year at the Cambridge News Business Excellence Awards, held at King’s College and hosted by Jonathan Dimbleby.

"We’ve had a very successful year," said Gordon Watling, "we have significantly strengthened our business through acquisition and innovative new product launches. Our recent move to new premises on the Cambridge Research Park reaffirms our long-term commitment to this area, which is why winning the Business of the Year Award has special significance for us.

"The Award is recognition of our high levels of innovation, efficiency and customer service which, together with strong leadership from the senior management team, has allowed us to consistently deliver double-digit growth over the last four years. To have that recognised – particularly within the community in which we operate, is extremely rewarding.

"It’s a great personal compliment to receive the Business Person of the Year Award, but once again the true merit goes to our employees, whose dedication, energy and enthusiasm have made Sepura the company it is today and created a platform for further successes in the future.

"These are exciting times for us; these awards serve as confirmation of our positive trajectory and, I hope, an indication of the many good things still to come."
