Paxton named company of the year at Brighton and Hove Business Awards

Paxton, the global brand of electronic IP access control and door entry systems, is celebrating being named Company of the Year at the Brighton and Hove Business Awards. The company was also highly commended in the International Business of the Year category.

The Brighton and Hove Business Awards are supported by the city’s leading organisations and are established as a benchmark for excellence in today’s competitive business environment. In selecting ‘Company of the Year’, the experienced panel of judges were looking for, “the company that has truly achieved all-round business excellence in terms of year on year financial performance, strategic direction, employee relations, CSR, innovation and a first-class service and/or product offering.”

The awards ceremony, which took place on Saturday 14th July, was attended by Nicola O'Donnell, HR Director, and Devin Yuille, Resourcing Business Partner, along with representatives from other local businesses.

Commenting on the win, Adam Stroud, Paxton’s Chief Executive said: “We are absolutely delighted to have scooped Company of the Year at the Brighton and Hove Business Awards, and to have been commended for our international presence. It’s a massive honour to be recognised amongst the top businesses in Brighton, and to be the only security manufacturer to win an award.

We aim to be world-class in all that we do, from our products and services, to our working environment.  We’ve worked hard to develop a positive company culture and to support our staff on each step of their career with us.

While hard work, focus, investment and a good strategy are essential to the success of the company, most important by a long way are the people that work for Paxton.  I’d like to thank all of the Paxton team, they have been responsible for our success to date, and will continue to determine the extent of our future successes.”
