To get a feel for the scale of the biggest business awards in the south of England this video gives some insight into the ceremony that all the finalists attend.
The breadth of businesses across the Gatwick region is vast. The Gatwick Diamond business area covers from South London, into Surrey and down to the Sussex coast with Gatwick Airport at its heart and is recognised as one of the strongest local economies in the UK there are 45,000 businesses and 500 global or international companies.
With a reputation for Gatwick Diamond industry sector leadership in Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering, it was with trepidation that Gemini Print entered the award sponsored and judged b the leading law firm DMH Stallard for Manufacturing Business of the Year 2019. “Being judged as a Finalist was an amazing achievement for the team, but when on the night it was announced that Gemini Print was the Winner it was a wonderful surprise” said Matt Cooper, Production Director.
The celebrations doubled with the announcement of another win for Gemini Print – Customer Delight 2019. Sponsored and judged by the major accountancy firm Kreston Reeves. When entering the award, the team knew that the competition would be very tough. Maxine Cropper, who heads up the Gemini Print client team, said “the level of companies, both large and small, throughout the region who also focus on customer service excellence is huge – meaning this accolade for the team is so significant to us. Every day we consider how we can develop – and how we can meet our aim to be a clients ‘perfect print partner.’”
The only downside of the night for Managing Director Steve Cropper was that he couldn’t have more of the 160+ team present to see the company winning these awards as Gemini Print is a 24/7 manufacturing operation. Steve said, “Print is a low margin business that demands significant levels of both human resource and large scale capital investment to provide the skills and leading-edge technology to provide the best quality work and value to clients, resulting in rare opportunities to get everyone together.”
