Brighton Technology Company Wins International Business of the Year
Brighton-based global technology company, Paxton, is celebrating being awarded International Business of the Year at the Sussex Business Awards. The company, who design and manufacture security systems within Sussex, export their products to over 60 countries worldwide, including France, Middle East, Scandinavia and South Africa.
Celebrating thirty years in 2018, the Sussex Business Awards are the most sought-after accolade by organisations from every sector in Sussex. This year saw a record-breaking number of nominations for each category, with representatives from sixteen towns across Sussex making the shortlist of fifty-one finalists. Judges had an enormously difficult task, as the entries were of such a high standard.
Commenting on the win, Dan Drayton, Paxton’s International Sales Manager, said: “We are delighted to have been named International Business of the Year at the Sussex Business Awards. It’s a fantastic achievement to be recognised among some of the best businesses in Sussex for our continued global presence within the security market.
“Paxton’s success to date has largely been due to our commitment to our installers who buy and work with our products. Our goal is to provide a consistent world-class experience for our customers wherever they are located around the world. We’re incredibly proud of our Sussex roots and the global impact we have had on the security industry over the last 30 years.”
Chair of the judging panel, Mike Herd, said: “Each year the standard of entries gets better and better and this year was no exception. This year’s finalists are a stimulating mix of established businesses and new entrepreneurial ventures with a common thread running through them all – resilience and determination to succeed. Congratulations to all the winners!”
