Alfreton-based Evans Concrete Products – one of the UK’s leading suppliers of bespoke concrete solutions – is celebrating after winning a prestigious accolade.

The firm took home the Excellence in Manufacturing prize for the second year running, at the 2016 Derby Telegraph Business Awards.

This has been achieved following a series of major contract wins including a multi-million pound deal to provide concrete for Crossrail station platforms and infrastructures, as well as the redevelopment of the new Princess Royal stand at Jockey Club-owned Cheltenham Racecourse.

The Evans team, which currently stands at over 85 employees all from the local area, has worked hard to achieve this success, trebling in size over the past six years despite the obstacles presented by the economic downturn.
