A Chatteris engineering firm has won a top award at the inaugural Cambridgeshire SME Business Awards.
Stainless Metalcraft won in the Training and Development category at the awards at the Marriott Hotel, Huntingdon, last week.
The event saw small and medium businesses from across the UK battle it out over 20 categories, with the winner chosen by a specialist panel of judges.
Austen Adams, managing director of Stainless Metalcraft, said: “We’re delighted with this award, which continues the great run of form we’ve enjoyed over the last 18 months.
“While winning awards is a real fillip for the team, it wouldn’t be possible without all the hard work that has gone into transforming the business over the last few years.
