The great and the good of the Clackmannanshire business community congregated last Thursday evening to recognise and reward local business achievement.
As sponsors, Ceteris were delighted to attend and we were absolutely thrilled by the calibre of the 23 locally-based businesses who made the shortlist for these prestigious awards.
We were particularly delighted for five of our tenants who were nominated on the evening.
Huge congratulations to SV24-7 Vending and Paths for all who each won an award (below) while Emblation Limited won the big prize, “Outstanding Performing Business Award”. Well done also to InnPac and Signpost Recovery who were nominated in the “Outstanding Performing Business Award “ and “Best Not For Profit Organisation of the Year” respectively.
Emblation Limited – Outstanding Performing Business Award
Based at Forrester Lodge, Alloa, Emblation is a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of microwave-based medical devices. With a global vision, the business prides itself on strategic thinking and significant technical innovation in the development of technology that is used worldwide to treat thousands of cancer patients every month – patients that may not have benefited from treatment had Emblation not driven development in this area. From a commercial perspective, the construction, negotiation and closing of two deals worth over $30m is a colossal achievement, particularly for a company of 14 people in Alloa.
