Here at TRB Lightweight Structures, we are busy celebrating our recent success at the Hunts Post Huntingdonshire Business Awards 2019. The awards recognise the district’s thriving businesses and TRB was shortlisted for both ‘Medium Business of the Year’ and the ‘Business Growth Award’.
The application process was very detailed – including a comprehensive document covering a number of areas and a site visit – and we were judged on our innovation, market and staff development, strategic leadership and financial plan. On the night, our efforts as a company scooped us the growth award and also claimed us the most prestigious prize of the evening – ‘Business of the Year’ – a real cause for celebration.
We are proud that these awards reflect our strong history of innovation in the design and manufacture of lightweight structural interior assemblies in the rail and vehicle industries. This work plays a key role in the development of transport solutions that reduce energy consumption and help the environment – a huge part of our ethos. None of this could be achieved without our talented workforce, and we pride ourselves on developing our people and promoting from within the company – with over 20 % of our current staff in some form of training. Collectively, this has led to the scope of our work increasing significantly and the remarkable growth of the company over recent years – a phenomenal feat.
As Managing Director, I love watching how we develop as a company. It’s a fantastic achievement to have won these awards and to be acknowledged for our commitment to innovation, the environment, our employees and to our growth.
One thing is for certain, we’re excited for the future.
Richard Holland, Managing Director at TRB
