Vent-Axia shortlisted for Gatwick Diamond Business Awards

The award ceremony will take place on the 20th March 2014, at the Effingham Park Hotel, Gatwick, where comedian Tim Vine will present the awards at a sumptuous sell-out evening celebrating the best of the region’s businesses.

The Gatwick Diamond sub-region is a key economic area and home to a vast array of companies ranging from multi-nationals to sole traders. When considering companies to shortlist for the coveted awards, the judging panel were looking for businesses that show innovation and inspiration in their work and demonstrate a real commitment to the Gatwick Diamond area. The key to Vent-Axia’s entry was its noteworthy investment in ground breaking new products and its clear investment in the local region.

Jenny Smith, marketing services manager at Vent-Axia, said, ‘We’re delighted that we’ve been shortlisted for a prestigious Gatwick Diamond Business Award. Innovation is central to Vent-Axia’s culture so it truly reflects the spirit of our company and we’re thrilled that this has been recognised by industry peers.’

Located in the heart of the Gatwick Diamond sub-region in Crawley, West Sussex, Vent-Axia recently demonstrated its support to the Gatwick Diamond economy when, in January 2013, the company opened three new production assembly lines at its headquarters. It was a bold move reshoring manufacturing from China back to Britain with the relocation creating 35 new Crawley based jobs in a tough economic climate.  Vent Axia also spent over £350,000 in tooling and buildings showing a clear investment in the local economy. 

As well investing in the local economy Vent-Axia’s commitment to British manufacturing has seen the company further investing in UK logistics which has helped lower the embodied energy of products by reducing carbon emissions. A reduction in international shipping and flights has had a remarkable result – saving 15 tonnes of CO2 a year.
