Prize Guys Looking to Build on Award Success; BUSINESS LIFE: BUSINESS AWARDS ROUND-UP


Byline: ANDREW HUTSON, Business Reporter

WINNERS of the Evening Telegraph's Business Awards say they are now looking to build on their high-profile success.

They said the confidence boost of picking up a prize pointed them to an even more positive future after receiving their awards on Thursday.

Hundreds of bosses and staff headed to the Hilton National Hotel, Walsgrave Triangle, Coventry for the Oscar-style ceremony.

Powergen plc Business Innovation Award winner Envirovalve is hoping to take business forward even further.

Envirovalve is the brainchild of Stratford-based inventor David Cole and Exhall-based Envirovalve Ltd was formed after he met Peter Starley, managing director of Exhall Plating, in 1998.

The product? A cheap way of safeguarding the environment from hazardous industrial substance spills.

It is used by Britvic Soft Drinks in Rugby, Jaguar Cars, in Coventry, and Ford's worldwide environmental manager has recommended that all Ford sites should have them.

Mr Cole said he was hoping things would move further forward after winning the award.

He said: "It's a well deserved award - we've worked hard for this and it is good recognition."

Geoff Moran, product manager for Wellesbourne-based Pianoforte Supplies Plastics, which won the Coventry and Warwickshire Education Business Partnerships Investing in Young People Award, said he was also looking to a brighter future.

He added that it was important to invest in young people.

Mr Moran said: "We are in the automotive industry which is not the easiest at the moment.

"Unless we invest in our employees we are not going to get very far."
