Northamptonshire Chamber members triumphed in this year’s Business Excellence Awards with organisations winning accolades in about half of the categories.
Out of the 11 titles, business members collected the top prizes in five categories at the 2013 Northamptonshire Business Excellence Awards, designed to celebrate and showcase the most aspiring companies and traders in the county.
A further three local businesses were highly commended in separate categories.
The awards, organised by Northamptonshire Newspapers, was hosted at the Daventry Court Hotel, where winners were recognised in front of an audience of more than 200 guests from the business world.

Northamptonshire Chamber was also delighted to sponsor two of the categories: International Trader of the Year and Online Business of the Year.
Actor Nitin Ganatra, who plays Masood in EastEnders, hosted the event with proceeds from a raffle on the night going to Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.
The winners of all 11 categories will receive £7,312 worth of advertising between them from Northamptonshire Newspapers.
Commenting on the successes, the Chamber’s Chief Executive Paul Griffiths, said: “We are proud to have so many of our members recognised in this year’s Business Excellence Awards.
“It shows the sheer talent, and innovation we have on our doorstep and we, as a Chamber are pleased to be associated with awards that celebrate business achievements in Northamptonshire.”
