The world-leading manufacturer walked away with the 2014 Large Business of the Year accolade at the Essex Accountancy and Business Awards. The event, organised by the local society of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales, took place at the Stock Brook Country Club in Billericay on May 22, and saw finance professionals and local businesses fight it out to be named as winners in their field. ebm-papst UK’s managing director David Jarvis, who accepted the award, said: “The whole team at ebm-papst UK is absolutely thrilled to be recognised as Essex’s Large Business of the Year.

“The company is a crucial supplier to UK engineering and energy saving businesses and we work hard to stay ahead of the curve, anticipate our customers’ needs and deliver the best technology and the best service possible.” Large Business of the Year judges said they were especially impressed by ebm-papst UK’s strong management team and inclusive company culture, praising the company as a “very worthy winner”. A spokesman for Lloyd’s Bank, who helped judge the category, said: “ebm-papst UK is a long-established business which has recognised the need to add value wherever possible and the benefit of creating a client centric experience.

“Although ebm-papst UK's parent is German, the UK business enjoys a good level of autono-my. The right to this autonomy has been achieved as a result of a long and sustained period of making sound investment decisions and delivering solid results for the group.”
