For the second consecutive year, Hampton Conservatories, has had the honour of being short-listed as a finalist in the ‘International’ category of the UTV Business Eye Awards, which recognises organisations trading internationally from Northern Ireland.
Representatives of the company, which designs and manufactures high-end bespoke timber and glass buildings, celebrated the achievement, with other leading firms and top business leaders, at a gala evening in the Culloden Estate & Spa on Thursday.
Michael Wilson, Managing Director of UTV said “The calibre of entries for this year's awards show that there are plenty of ambitious, confident and well led companies operating in Northern Ireland. UTV is delighted once again to recognise and celebrate these top achievers and organisations in such a positive way. These awards represent all that is good about business in NI and it is great to see growth and success in so many sectors in spite of the tough times."
Mervyn Montgomery, Managing Director of Hamptons, said, “Once again it’s an honour to be shortlisted for such a prestigious award. Hampton Conservatories continues to grow its International business and build significant presence in export markets; this year expanding into Australia. This is, without a doubt, due to the tremendous effort and the positive attitude of our employees”.
The awards, which are now in their eighth year, honour high achievers of the Northern Ireland business community as well as the public sector. There were hundreds of entries across the 17 different categories and the winners in each case were chosen by a panel of judges including UTV's Business Editor Jamie Delargy, Business Eye Editor Richard Buckley, Irish News Business Editor Gary McDonald and Richard Sherriff, Business Correspondent at the News Letter. This years’ International Award went to Norbrook Laboratories.
