Horizon’s crowning glory
The Huddersfield-based Horizon Group, celebrated the end of 2013 in style when it was crowned SME of the Year at the Examiner Business Awards.
The event, which was held at the John Smith Stadium and hosted by ITV’s Harry Gration, is designed to reward the best entries in 10 keenly contested categories. Taking place for the eighth year, the categories were judged by prominent figures from the business and media community.
The SME of the Year award, which was sponsored by Kirklees Stadium Development included strong competition from engineering firm Manrochem and North Fire, a specialist supplier of equipment to the fire service, but Gareth Davies, Chief Executive of Kirklees Stadium Development announced that the Horizon Group had scooped the prize on account of its lengthy and successful trading history and the timely evolution of its product and service offering.
Commenting on the win, Managing Director Keith Ball, said. “We didn’t expect it and we are absolutely delighted. This is the first time Horizon has entered any type of awards competition and to win at the first attempt is testament to the progress the business has made in recent times and the progress we continue to make.”
A leading name in the manufacture of high quality signage, the Horizon Group has also recently formed an FF&E division that sources, manufactures and installs furniture, fittings and equipment solutions. During the coming year, the company will implement a range of strategic initiatives as it builds on a trading year that saw its turnover increase by over 60 percent by focusing on further expansion and market penetration.
