Halton Chamber Business Award
PRINTING SPECIALIST SECURES HALTON BUSINESS AWARD
Ecstatic employees from Runcorn-based TALL Security Print are rejoicing after the company triumphed at the Halton Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. The printing specialist secured the ‘Made in Halton’ Business Award at the ceremony, held at the Select Security Stadium, home of the Widnes Vikings.
This is the second time in as many years that TALL Security Print, part of The TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure paper and electronic payment solutions, has won a Halton Chamber Business Award. The glittering gala event – which is organised by Halton Chamber of Commerce & Enterprise – celebrates the achievements of businesses from across the region. Last year, the company was named International Business of the Year.
‘Made in Halton’
Commenting on the event, Lynton Buxton, the company’s Group Marketing Manager, said: “It was brilliant to visit the home of the Widnes Vikings, who we are proud shirt sponsors for, and to collect another Halton Business Award. It was a fantastic occasion and also an honour to meet so many local business leaders that have made an extraordinary impact across their respective industries.”
This award builds on TALL Security Print’s successful start to 2017. In March, the company was ‘highly commended’ in the Cheshire Exporter of the Year category at The High Sheriff’s Awards for Enterprise 2016/17.
Leicestershire Cares Volunteering
CHECKPRINT GIVES BACK BY JOINING VOLUNTEERING INITIATIVE
Checkprint, part of the TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure paper and electronic payment solutions, has joined a community initiative that will provide its employees with local volunteering opportunities. The company has signed up as a member of Leicestershire Cares, the not-for-profit organisation that helps businesses to find placements.
As part of the relationship, the Hinckley-based firm will contribute to a number of community programmes across Leicestershire and Rutland. This includes eight employees from Checkprint delivering weekly lessons to Year 3 & 4 pupils from Battling Brook Primary School, where the team aims to make maths magic and put smiles into sums!
So far, the Checkprint team has also conducted reading lessons for 11 to 14 year olds, and has signed up to provide training sessions on interview techniques to help school leavers find work.
Leicestershire Cares Volunteering
Mark Temple, Key Account Manager at Checkprint, is leading the initiative on behalf of the company. He said: “Despite working with clients across the world, Checkprint is proud to have it roots firmly embedded in Leicestershire, and that is why we wanted to give something back. Leicestershire Cares is a fantastic organisation that provides excellent opportunities for local businesses to make a real difference, and we are looking forward to the year ahead.”
Joanne Hudson, Membership Coordinator at Leicestershire Cares, added: “Checkprint has embraced its Leicestershire Cares membership and has made a flying start to fulfilling its social responsibility aims in Hinckley and the surrounding around. It’s great to work with a business where so many staff are involved as this brings a greater depth and meaning to the work that we deliver.”
Leicester Mercury Business Awards
CHECKPRINT SCOOPS TOP REGIONAL BUSINESS AWARD
Checkprint, part of the TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure paper and electronic payment solutions, is celebrating after the Hinckley-based company triumphed at the Leicester Mercury Business Awards 2017 last week (Thursday 27th April).
The firm fought off tough competition to secure the Services Award after demonstrating strengths in service excellence, business growth, innovation, technology, training and personal development. Checkprint also received special praise from Martin Atkinson, Sales Director at Towergate Insurance, who sponsored and judged the award, for what the company has achieved in what continues to be a challenging environment for the payments industry.
A team of nine employees from Checkprint, led by Managing Director Martin Ruda, were on hand to celebrate as the company received the prestigious award. In total, more than 750 guests from across various industries headed to the Leicester Arena for the gala dinner and ceremony, which was hosted by broadcaster and comedian Mark Dolan, alongside ITV Weather presenter Emma Jesson.
Commenting on the award, Martin Ruda said: “This success is testimony to the hard work, enthusiasm and commitment displayed by each member of the Checkprint team. The Leicester Mercury Business Awards is a fantastic initiative that celebrates best practice across a vibrant area of the UK, and we are thrilled to have our achievements recognised by a panel of esteemed judges.
“The award clearly demonstrates, and rewards, the work that has been done in Hinckley to offer successful complimentary products and services to our many customers and clients across the UK, moving the business in new directions away from our traditional core print offerings. It recognises the depth of our experience in payments, and our ability to grow with such strong relationships in the banking industry.”
