Disposables UK was crowned 'Business of the Year' at the 2013 Huddersfield Examiner Business Awards, following a successful year for the family-run Meltham-based business.
Disposables UK demonstrated in its submission how, over the past year, the company has overcome difficult trading conditions to grow the business, win new contracts, develop new products, and improve operations, in order to beat numerous finalists and scoop the coveted award.
The win marks the culmination of Disposables UK's focus on growth and innovation during 2013, which saw the company relocate its four previous sites into one large 150,000 sq ft state-of-the-art site in Meltham. Consolidating its operations in this way and providing a faster turnaround time on producing goods, has allowed the company to deliver even better customer service.
Emma Wood, marketing manager at Disposables UK, said: “We are thrilled to have won the Business of The Year award and be recognised for our achievements. It has been a very exciting year for the company, with the site move and expansion so this really is the icing on the cake. It is also recognition for the team who strive to make the company a success, both locally and nationally. As a leading company in our field, we are proud to have played such a strong part in the manufacturing renaissance of Kirklees and, as one of the largest employers in Meltham, to have had a positive impact on the local economy.”
