Sepura nominated for UK business award
Sepura has been shortlisted for Large Business of the Year at the Cambridge News Business Excellence Awards 2020.
According to the company, the nomination is in recognition of “achieving record revenues through significant sales around the world, including in the UK, the Netherlands, USA, Canada and Oman.”
Sepura’s work in 2019 included providing a new TETRA fleet to the Metropolitan Police Service, constituting its largest ever European order. It also won the complete market share for police TETRA radios in Holland, obtained business in Nepal, Singapore, Brazil and Australia, while also supplying Heathrow Airport.
Figures released by the company state that it now provides 65 per cent of police radios in the UK, with over 85,000 recently ordered.
Speaking of the nomination, a spokesperson said: “The decision to recognise Sepura’s success is a milestone in [our] recovery from a challenging financial position, resulting in [the purchase by] Hytera Communications in 2017. Since then, the company has succeeded in bringing class-leading products to market, achieving outstanding commercial success and recording year-on-year revenue growth.”
Steve Barber, CEO at Sepura, said: “By ensuring that we have an outstanding team in place around the world, we can engage with each customer on a personal level, ensuring that we understand their needs before proposing solutions that match these requirements. In this manner we have been able to deliver world class solutions that our competition has not been able to match.”
Sepura will find out if it has won the award at a ceremony to be held on March 19th.
