I think it is the quality of our British-made product which made us stand out to the judges. I'm very proud, but couldn't do it by myself, so I owe this to my loyal employees.Neal Sands Managing Director, Sands Agricultural Machinery
Business of the Year Sponsored by Barclays
Sands Agricultural Machinery (SAM) Ltd caught the eye of judges at last year’s EDP Business Awards. With its strong family heritage, and its very active new product development to incorporate latest satellite precision farming technology, SAM was awarded the Barclays Business of the Year award.
Now is the time for you to grab your chance to pick up the most coveted business accolade in the region. Supported by Barclays since the EDP Business Awards was founded, the Business of the Year looks for the business that shines out, is forward thinking, strategic and strong.
Tim Seeley, Head of East Anglia, Corporate Banking at Barclays has been judge of the Business of the Year Award from its start.
He said: “Barclays has been an integral part of business in East Anglia since the 1700s, growing since then to have a presence in major markets around the world.
“Despite the current concerns in the economy, we continue to support our clients in their business goals in East Anglia and the opportunities they are seeing. That is why it is even more important that we support the Business Awards with our category of Business of the Year.
“We’ve continued to sponsor the awards since they were launched. As we have seen over the years, the quality of entrants will be very high and judging will be tough, but it will all be worth it to celebrate the successes of businesses who we know are forward thinking in their approach.”
