Celebrating their achievements, Badgemaster was centre stage receiving the awards from Olympic star and TV presenter Sharron Davies at the glamorous event in London last week. Co-founder and Managing Director, John Bancroft MBE describes his pride and delight at the achievements of their 100+ team:
“To receive these awards is a great honour – for our team, our clients, and for the local community in Nottinghamshire. To be globally recognised for our achievements is one of the great landmarks in our journey to deliver unparalleled products and service for our customers.”
Award 1: Best IT Innovation and Website
Badgemaster.co.uk launched their new site with many innovative features earlier this year, providing enhanced services to customers to help them access highest quality, personalised badges with the famous Badgemaster price guarantee easily and efficiently.
Award 2: Made in the UK
Badgemaster, Europe’s largest name badge manufacturer, had its first factory in a small portacabin in Hucknall, Nottingham. Twenty-four years later, the state of art purpose built 12,000 square foot facility still resides in nearby Newstead Nottinghamshire today. The company plays an important role in the local community, receiving Governmental recognition for staff training and environmental responsibility; subjects close the hearts of many of Badgemaster’s 100 + employees, who come from the local ex-mining community.
Badgemaster’s focus on British suppliers of the highest calibre has also earned the company the British Standards Institute Accreditations for Quality and Environmental Management.
In 2006, Her Majesty the Queen granted Badgemaster the Royal Warrant.
Award 3: Best Manufacturer/Distributer
Badgemaster’s best in class reusable name badge, Instabadge®, was recognised for its quality and customer service benefits. It enables customers to create bespoke, professionally designed badges within their own premises. Its benefits have been widely recognised, with already over 2,000 customers now enjoying the Instabadge benefits.
Yvette Ashby, the publisher of Professional Clothing Director-e magazine and Director of The Professional Clothing Show and awards, was delighted to see these three important awards go to Badgemaster.
“It fills me with pride to see Badgemaster’s great success at our 2016 awards. We had over 400 attendees from all over the World from large global companies, independent organisations and some of the industries rising stars from fashion designers to corporate tailors, who all play a part in ensuring the professional clothing industry remains cutting edge, competitive and customer focused.”
