Checkprint finalists in the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Business Awards
The Hinckley-based company has been shortlisted in the ‘Excellence in International Trade’, ‘Business Improvement Through Technology’ and ‘Small Business of the Year’ award categories ahead of the Awards Dinner on 21st September in Leicester after being nominated in the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Leicestershire Business Awards 2018.
The three awards pay tribute to organisations that have excelled in the field of international sales growth and development; the use of science and technology to drive businesses forward; and to recognise those SME’s who have excelled through innovation, staff development and growth. Finalists have also been selected and judged on the quality of their products and services, their dedication to sales performance, innovation and the sustainability of their business.
Checkprint’s Hinckley site, whilst remaining a key print resource within the TALL Group, has also seen major investment in new IT equipment and infrastructure to support its new cheque imaging product line extension. The company has – through major contracts with several major banks – already provided over 5,000 cheque scanners into the new imaging market sector both in the UK and overseas.
Martin Ruda, Group Managing Director, the TALL Group, said: “We have always been ready to invest in the development of exciting technology. These innovative new products and services, built on the expertise of Checkprint’s existing relationships with major financial institutions, are helping to drive future growth within the Hinckley site. We are proud to have been shortlisted in these three award categories and are very much looking forward to the Awards Dinner in September.”
The nominations follow news earlier in the year that the TALL Group had been accorded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2018 for its outstanding international sales growth boosted by input from Checkprint and the other TALL Group companies.
