BM Catalysts is celebrating after winning its category in the Family Business Awards.
Announced at a ceremony in Leicester the award recognises manufacturing excellence at the firm.
With a 30-year history and the third generation of the same family still running the company, BM Catalysts stood out as a good family-run business. The company shook off competition from other finalists to be crowned victorious.
Having succeeded his father in running the business earlier this year Managing Director Toby Massey is pleased with the result: â€œâ€œTo win any award is a great boost for business, but one that celebrates our family values and recognises how this has directly led to our success is hugely satisfying.
â€œWeâ€™d like to thank all our staff, many of whom have been part of the â€˜BM Catalysts familyâ€™ for years, for their contribution to our ongoing success.â€
BM Catalysts says the award rounds off an excellent year for the company, with strong sales increases and exports rising in the first quarter of 2012, followed by the launch of a new range at Automechanika in September.
Commercial Director Mark Blinston said: â€œItâ€™s rewarding to see how a family-run UK manufacturing business can thrive despite the economic conditions that we constantly see reported in the media.â€
