The Filter Design Company scoop not one, but TWO business awards!
The Filter Design Company is pleased to announce that we have won both ‘Small Business of the Year’ and ‘Export Business of the Year’, awarded by St Helens Chamber in the Chamber Business Awards 2020.
The competition was strong, with us running against around 50 local, reputable firms across the two award categories… but we managed to clinch the top spots. The ‘Small Business of the Year’ award was presented to us (for the second year running!) as we have shown consistent growth, commitment to our staff, and are driving to innovate our products and services. We were granted the ‘Export Business of the Year’ award as we have continually developed our geographical reach, with international sales accounting for almost half of revenue in 2019.
When he heard the news, our Managing Director and Co-Owner, Phil Scott, said:
“It is a real privilege to receive these awards. The Filter Design Company has grown consistently over the last 18 months, with our product and service portfolio increasing, our workforce expanding and we have continued to participate in some very interesting and important projects across various industries. We thank the Chamber and sponsors for this recognition, and thank everybody at The Filter Design Company for their hard work.”

Phil also took the time to reflect on the last six months in particular and how much has changed since applying for the Chamber Awards back in March 2020:
“There have been some significant developments since we submitted our application. The global COVID-19 pandemic has increased demand substantially for The Filter Design Company’s products and services, and everyone within the business has been working extremely hard to provide the high-quality filtration systems people need. We are always thankful for our team members’ efforts, but especially so over the last half a year. Well done to all.”
The awards ceremony was certainly very different to last year… It was a very socially distant affair!
