Only one of the 30 finalists at the Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce awards ceremony was picked out to receive the Judges Special Award for Innovation.
Detectamet Ltd of Pocklington was selected for its innovation in the design, manufacture and distribution of detectable products for the food industry. These products help food manufacturers around the world to reduce the risk of food contaminated with plastic reaching the food consumer.
“In the past 12 months Detectamet has launched eighteen new detectable plastic products and ten new stainless steel products” explained James Chrismas “and we are very proud that our efforts have been recognised by the Hull and Humber Chamber”
The award was received on behalf of Detectamet by David Atkinson who was nominated for his leadership of the company’s successful sales department. “It was a wonderful occasion” David said “and to receive such a prestigious award has given us all a brilliant boost.”
This award follows Detectamet’s receiving Queen’s Award for Enterprise, which was presented to the company in recognition of its surging international trade figures. James adds, “It’s been an exceptional year for Detectamet and this local award is a super accolade for all our staff and give us the drive to continue to grow the business”.
