PROjEN win Business of the Year Award

PROjEN, the specialist Project Management Company has won the Vale Royal Business of the Year Award for 2006. The prestigious award was sponsored by the North West Development Agency and presented at a ceremony organised by The Northwich, Winsford and Middlewich Guardian Newspaper group in conjunction with Vale Royal Borough Council and Business Link Cheshire and Warrington on Wednesday 14th June 2006.

Over 1,000 businesses make up the region and 34 were shortlisted for a variety of awards including Business of the Year, Start up Business of the Year and International Business of the Year. The criteria used by the judges in order to finalise the winners included companies who could demonstrate strong financial growth, could show a clear and planned development of products and services, could show an astute use of internal and external marketing communications , could demonstrate a high level of customer satisfaction and provide evidence of investment in personal development procedures.

Eleanor Underhill, Managing Director of The Guardian Series of Newspapers said “Our business depends upon local businesses doing well and it is a great pleasure to record this success”.

John Taylor, Managing Director, PROjEN, said “Vale Royal believes a successful business economy is crucial in achieving their mission statement – Vale Royal, a great place to be. Our business performance is fantastic but equally important is making our Company a great place to work. We have a superb work ethic at PROjEN and our clients readily see that our people care. We do stand out amongst our competition and this award is a massive pat on the back for all our personnel.”

PROjEN is a multi disciplined Project Management Company specialising in industrial projects for the Food, Pharmaceutical, Water & Waste and General Process & Manufacturing industries. PROjEN offers clients an outsourced option for some or all of their engineering services such as feasibility studies, design work and construction/project management.

Over the last 3 years PROjEN has doubled both in sales and number of personnel and also introduced a number of new services which have had a big impact on many clients within its target markets. These new products include assistance with Capex Planning, Energy Management, Factory Relocation and Legislation Compliance.

When added to the Company’s core skills of turnkey project management, it is no surprise that more and more companies have turned to PROjEN for practical support especially in the last 12 months. Equally it is no surprise that the Company has secured a number of third party accreditations such as RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) Gold Medal in 2006 for 5 consecutive Gold Awards and the European Construction Institute Contractor of the Year in 2003 and Project of the Year 2004 and 2006. Typical projects have included the £800k automation of an existing process facility and a £5 million industrial refrigeration project.

The Company has a clear vision and occupies a market position above the one-man-bands but below the multi-nationals. Our intention is to retain this niche by capping our staff numbers to no more than 100 and to offer a wider range of business services to a limited number of clients. Together this ensures a closer working relationship based on better business understanding and a greater alignment of business goals.
