Hot on the heels of a hat trick at the Red Rose Awards for Lancashire businesses and commerce, conservatory and extended living space specialist, Prefix Systems, has won The Newcomer Award in the first ever Hive Blackburn and Darwen Business Awards.
Hive is described as ‘a group of business leaders working together to inspire prosperity’ and is supported by Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council. Finalists were joined by the judges, sponsors and dignitaries including Jack Straw, who was the MP for Blackburn from 1979-2015 and served in the Cabinet from 1997 – 2010, at a black-tie event, held at Blackburn Cathedral in April, where the winners were announced.
Prefix was thrilled to take home The Newcomer Award, having recently relocated to the Blackburn and Darwen borough. Back in March, Prefix won the Construction Business of the Year, Manufacturing Business of the Year and Medium Business of the Year categories at the Red Rose Awards, which were presented at the Empress Ballroom at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens. The company feels that this latest Hive award clearly demonstrates that Prefix Systems has ‘bold ambitions’ for the future and the extended living space market. One of the judges said: “The Prefix entry stood out by a country mile and it’s superb to see that level of sustained and aggressive growth.”
Chris Baron and Chris Cooke, co-directors of Prefix Systems commented: “Not only was it a celebratory night for all the successful and innovative businesses in the area, but we achieved The Newcomer Award in a hotly contested category. While we may have received the award on the night, it represents all the hard work and success we’ve achieved as a team and we’d like to thank everyone including our staff, customers and business partners.”
