An Upper Heyford company pioneering UV technology development has been commended for its social and export achievements with two major Awards wins at last Friday’s (April 19th) Cherwell Valley Business Awards.
Integration Technology Ltd (ITL) picked up both Export and Overall Business of the Year Award at the event’s Gala Dinner held at Rye Hill Golf Club.
The 2000-founded company makes state-of-the-art semi-conductor based UV LED light engines both for an incoming generation of digital printers and enabling new applications in electronics manufacturing.
Sponsors of the Export Award, Cherwell District Council judges commended the winner’s continued export achievement and most especially noted significant growth in ITL exports within Europe, against the prevailing economic climate.
ITL managing director Adrian Lockwood returned to the stage to collect the highly prestigious and most coveted Overall Business of the Year Award, selected from amongst the winners of the other award categories.
Judges from Banbury-based sponsor Norbar Tools remarked that in addition to product innovation and export achievements, ITL’s ongoing commitment to staff care and training and the company’s work within the local community were all deciding factors in the decision.
“This has been a team effort,” said Adrian.
“Winning both of these awards recognises the achievements of everyone at ITL and we’re all delighted and proud to receive them.”
