“A total surprise, but a wonderful one,” was how John Sutch, Managing Director and Founder, summed up winning the Liverpool Echo Regional Business Award for Investment of the Year on 3rd July 2014.
The company was against stiff competition in the form of Jaguar Land Rover and Bootle Containers. This award was sponsored by Liverpool Vision, the organisation responsible for keeping business, investors and stakeholders in Liverpool on track.
When the win was announced, congratulations rained in via Twitter, in person and by phone from; fellow nominees, customers such as Clarke Energy, the local business community, the Mayor’s office and the press.
A particularly poignant moment was a toast made to John’s success by representatives of Cammell Laird, as they were his first customers when he started the business having invested in a single crane in 1990.
