Towcester based Variohm Eurosensor attended the Northamptonshire Chamber Business Awards and are so excited and proud to announce that they not only won Export Business of the Year but also went on to win Business of the Year!

It was an incredible night out; the atmosphere at the awards was amazing.

Export Business of the Year

“This award recognises the strength of Britain’s international businesses. Entrants for this award must stand out from the crowd on the International stage and demonstrate that they have generated significant and/or sustained increases in their export and/or import activity.”

Speaking to AboutMyArea/NN12 Alison Moffatt said, "Over the years we have grown our export business steadily. In 2017/2018 our export accounted for over 50% of our overall £15m turnover. We have strong team in Germany to support our export customers and a network of distributors who we work with to deliver our first class products and outstanding customer service. 

"We now have a warehouse in Germany to hold stock for our export customers – this is just part of our plans for Brexit.  

"In more recent years we have been designing and manufacturing our own line of sensors which we have been able to distribute world-wide to help grow our business further."

Carsten, our Group Export Manager says “A big WELL DONE to everyone and THANK YOU for the effort that every single person in the company has put into to make us able to win the Export of the Year award!

"Each department had contributed strongly and fought their own battles to make this happen

"When I remember where we have come from and how much we have improved since then it is fantastic! Looking forward I believe there are so many things we can further improve and make us even better”

"We are really thrilled to have won this award; we would like to say a massive thank you to all of our employees, customers, distributors and suppliers who have made this possible!"

Apprentice of the Year – Jacob Upton

Our Apprentice Jacob Upton was also entered into an award – The Apprentice of the Year; 

“This award recognises the rising stars who will become the business leaders of tomorrow. Open to all current or past apprentices aged 16–25 years old who can demonstrate they have made an exceptional contribution to their workplace.”

"It was really great that he was recognised as a finalist for this award but unfortunately he didn’t win this category. To get down to the final three is an achievement in itself and we are all proud of him! 

Richard Kelley, Jacob’s manager says “I could not be more proud of Jacob and his incredible achievements.  To have made the top 3 with such strong candidates is recognition of all of his hard work and dedication.  Variohm will continue to invest in apprentices because we fully recognise that our success depends on great candidates just like Jacob.  Well done and CONGRATULATIONS!”

Business of the Year

"The celebrations didn’t stop there; once we had won our category we knew we were in the running for Business of the Year.

"To say we were excited is an understatement! It feels amazing to be recognised as Northampton Chamber’s Business of the Year. "

Graham our Group Managing Director said “Well done and thank you to everyone. We know that Variohm is an amazing company but to be recognised for this by an external organisation feels incredible! 

"Thank you to all of our amazing employees – without you there would be no Variohm 

"Thank you to every single customer, supplier and distributor who has contributed to our business, we could not have won this award without you!”
