Denby based Plastic extrusion company HL Plastics has been shortlisted in the Growing Business of the Year category at this year’s Real Business Growing Business Awards, held in association with Lloyds Bank.
The company designs and manufactures innovative, lead-free PVCu products including windows, bi-folding and patio doors, conservatory roofs, and garden and landscaping products.
The company celebrated its 40th year in business in 2014 and was praised for its growth in the manufacturing sector by Prime Minister David Cameron during a recent visit.
Other firms shortlisted in the category include Diversity Travel, Kingdom Security, Golden Charter, Motorclean and Orangebox. The award is designed to recognise world-class, privately owned UK companies with a turnover of £25 to £50m and over.
Tim Hinton, Managing Director, SME & Mid Markets at Lloyds Bank, commented: “The number and quality of entrants this year is truly extraordinary. Not only have we seen a record number of nominations but perhaps the strongest all-round set of nominations yet.
“These businesses represent the best of British. Every one of these companies and entrepreneurs has shown that they have the tenacity and drive to innovate, grow and contribute to the country’s ongoing economic recovery.
“As we have seen, previous winners of these awards typically go on to achieve great things.
“I look forward to watching the development of this year’s nominees closely and hope they inspire other businesses to fulfil their potential.”
The winners of This year’s Lloyds Bank Real Business Growing Business Awards will be announced on November 25 at an awards ceremony at the Marriott Grosvenor Square London.
