The winners of the British Business Awards 2020, including the inaugural British Exporter of the Year Award, have been announced
The ten awards aim to showcase the companies and individuals who have been building strong business relationships betwen the two countries. The biannual awards were first launched in 2009 and this year the British Exporter of the Year Award was created and sponsored by CBBC, to celebrate British success and innovation in exporting to China.
CBBC has developed this opportunity to recognise companies that have demonstrated sustained success in exporting to the China market for at least three years, and who have highlighted the positive impact trade with China can have on the UK economy.
After receiving many competitive applications and following several rounds of judging, John Edwards, HM Trade Commissioner for China; and Tom Simpson, Managing Director China of CBBC presented the award to this year’s winner: Peak Scientific.
Peak Scientific was established in 1997, specialising in the design and manufacture of laboratory gas generators. Peak’s gas generators are used in analytical testing, academic research laboratories, hospitals, food and beverage, QA/QC laboratories and many more. Peak Scientific’s products are smaller, safer, quieter and more efficient than similar products in the market and are real world alternatives to high pressure compressed gas cylinders – a true example of British Innovation. The company’s products reduce the carbon footprint by bringing gas production in house on an ‘on tap’ basis. Transport of gas cylinders to sites is eliminated, where these cylinders are often transported long distances in inefficient vehicles.
