Cloud hosting firm UKFast has been shortlisted for the Innovation Award at the 2016 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards.
The Manchester-headquartered tech firm, is among the largest independently owned hosting providers in the UK, with CEO and founder Lawrence Jones MBE having built the business from a back bedroom to a £250 million enterprise.
Jones said: “Being shortlisted for the National Business Awards is an incredible achievement for any business. Awards are a badge of honour; an acknowledgement that you’re doing something right and a huge motivator to do even better the next year.
“At UKFast, we’re proud to have been at the heart of the internet for more than 17 years. During that time, we’ve grown from a two-man team to a £40 million turnover business with a 300-strong team with a home-grown, custom-built product portfolio. The National Business Awards are the cream of the crop and I am delighted to once again see UKFast in the shortlist.”
The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of nominated businesses across 18 award categories. They are now set to present to the expert judging panel which decides the overall winners.
Tom Broughton, Group Brand Director of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards said: “Due to the high number of entries for this years’ awards, narrowing the entries down to 140 finalists was a difficult task. But through a thorough and comprehensive judging process, the selected finalists demonstrate exceptional quality and diversity across a range of business sectors within the UK. We are now looking forward to the next step of the process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
