Triple award success for SCX
30th April 2018
Sheffield specialist engineering group SCX is celebrating after scooping three major awards in two separate ceremonies on the same night.
Success in the Yorkshire Business Masters Awards and the Made in Sheffield Awards has taken the company's reputation for engineering excellence to a new level. The SCX group's name is being taken around the world thanks to ground-breaking projects such as the retractable concertina-style roofs for two courts at the All English Lawn Tennis Club at Wimbledon and the world's first dividing retractable pitch for Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium. And now it has three more honours to add to its portfolio. The company, based in Wincobank, won Medium Business of the Year in the Yorkshire Business Masters Awards in Leeds and, on the same evening, won the Innovation category at the Made in Sheffield Awards before being presented with the overall Made in Sheffield 'Champion' award. SCX group managing director Simon Eastwood said: -What a fantastic night! -Winning the three awards at the two ceremonies is a magnificent achievement, not least in recognising the expertise, experience and commitment of our workforce across the whole group. -It is especially gratifying to be honoured in our home city with the Innovation award and being named the overall Made in Sheffield Champion. The latest awards are further recognition for the 45-year-old company, which is a leading mechanical handling solutions provider. Last December it was named Large Business of the Year in the Sheffield Business Awards, backed by Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Industry. As well as its top prize in the TheBusinessDesk.com's Yorkshire Business Masters Awards 2018, SCX also made the shortlist in two other categories, for Innovation and Investment. The ceremony, at The Queens Hotel, Leeds, is one of the key dinners in the region's business calendar, attracting decision makers, business owners and senior managers from a wide range of high-profile companies and business sectors. SCX went further in its home city with its double in the Made in Sheffield awards, which celebrate the region's world class reputation for manufacturing. The ceremony was hosted by Yorkshire Business Insider at the Cutlers Hall. The group has over 160 employees across three divisions - bespoke precision engineering arm SCX Special Projects, crane servicing and repair firm Street CraneXpress and Burnand XH, which specialises in electronic, electrical, electromechanical and pneumatic control components. Its expertise is now being harnessed in sectors as diverse as nuclear, defence, energy, construction, manufacturing, entertainment and stadia. Last year was hugely successful for SCX with major growth, groundbreaking projects, a full order book and the opening of its own training academy, also in Wincobank.
