We are delighted to announce that E-Max Systems has been shortlisted for Small Business of the Year 2021 in the North-East England Chamber of Commerce awards. One of only three companies to make the shortlist, the Small Business of the Year award celebrates businesses employing fewer than 49 people that strive to be best in their field, and are going from strength to strength with a clear vision for their future.

E-Max Systems Managing Director, Robert Johnston, stated “We are thrilled to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award. This nomination is a reflection of the hard work and huge effort our team has put in over the last few years, and especially through the challenges the pandemic presented in 2020. It’s a great achievement to have been recognised over hundreds of other high performing businesses and we  congratulate all the shortlisted companies.”

The Chamber Business Awards are a fresh new programme of business awards directly associated with the national British Chamber of Commerce awards taking place in November. The other companies shortlisted in the Small Business of the Year category are Nirvana Europe and eQuality Solutions Group.

The North-East Chamber of Commerce received hundreds of high-quality submissions across the awards programme. Entries were assessed over a number of criteria, including evidence of consistent growth, a clearly defined strategy for future growth, strong financial performance, understanding of the markets in which they operate, product/service innovation and differentiation, and commitment to employees and the local area.

Johnston noted, “E-Max has enjoyed steady growth year on year since the business started in 1998. Despite the issues we and others in the manufacturing industry have faced during the pandemic, we are in a strong position and have a clear vision for the future, for both our own development and solutions for our customers.” 

The winner of the Small Business of the Year and other North-East England Chamber of Commerce awards, will be announced on Thursday 9 September at either a face to face event at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead or online, depending on any restrictions in place at the time.
