Entering awards can often be daunting, time consuming and hard work, however the benefits of winning makes the effort really worth while. The Elsatex Group has been recognised on numerous occasions and in 2013 we were delighted to receive our first award when we won the Medway Business Awards and now have the proud title of being the first award winning textile company in Kent.
This was an incredible achievement for us and definitely created a great buzz in the office and also increased staff morale.
In 2014 we entered the Kent Excellence in Business Awards and came home with the award for Best SME of the Year. Since then we have come 5th place in Kent’s Megagrowth50 awards and in 2015 came 5th place in the Megagrowth50 list of Kent’s strongest exporters.
We were also crowned the joint Kent winners of HSBC’s Global Connections initiative. This prestigious award recognises businesses which are achieving excellence in three categories; innovation, international trade and mid-market growth.
