Oceanair claims European Business Award
British Marine member, Oceanair, has been named as one of 12 National Champions from a short list of 196 businesses, representing the ‘Ones to Watch in the United Kingdom’ for Europe’s largest business competition.
Chosen by a panel of independent judges, including senior business leaders, politicians and academics, Oceanair were named UK champion in the Awards’ category of ‘Business of the Year £0-25m’. Oceanair will now go on to represent the UK in this category in the final stage of the competition, against 32 other businesses.
Founder and Managing Director, Andy FitzGerald, said; “It’s a great honour for Oceanair to be recognised internationally as one of Britain’s best businesses, particularly in the category “Business of the Year”. Over 27 years I’ve seen Oceanair win many awards, most recently I was recognised with a lifetime achievement award. But this recognition, by an international competition, is really something for Oceanair as a company to be proud of!”
The European Business Awards is now in its 11th year and its primary purpose is to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe. Last year it engaged with over 33,000 businesses from 34 countries.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “This is an amazing achievement and Oceanair is clearly a stand out leader in their field. To be a National Winner means you represent our core values of success, ethics and innovation and are one of the best in Europe. We wish you the best of luck in the final round.”
