Cambrionix was one of only a quartet of businesses that was named a finalist in three separate categories for the 25th Anniversary Business Weekly Awards – and voting in each of these sections was exceptionally close.
Some of the most celebrated angels and serial entrepreneurs in Cambridge and the East of England placed Cambrionix in the final judging for Disruptive Technology, Engineering Excellence and International Trade.
There was a hair’s breadth between the winners, according to Business Weekly CEO, Tony Quested.
He said: “Cambrionix came closest to winning the Engineering Excellence Award and, also the International Trade category and it took some inspired figures from Hexcel Composites and tWI, both world leaders in their fields, to pip Cambrionix for honours.
“If Cambrionix maintains its rate of progress over the next 12 months it stands a wonderful chance of taking one of the prized obelisks. To come so close in three categories in a year when the entry across the board was the greatest ever, according to the judges and sponsors, was a fabulous effort. This is a high quality business with brilliant long-term prospects.”
