More than 300 companies attended the Croydon Business Excellence Awards Gala Dinner on Thursday, October 1st to hear the best of the best announced.
With a community of more than 13,000 businesses, it is Croydon’s entrepreneurial spirit which makes the borough the economic powerhouse of South London. The thriving business community is full of success stories, from tech start-ups and sole traders to companies that have developed from humble roots into international organisations.
The ceremony and black tie Gala Dinner was held at Fairfield Halls and Futures Supplies was delighted to be awarded the accolade of ‘Best SME Business’ in this their 20th year.
Councillor Toni Letts, of category sponsors Croydon Council, said: “Operating as an ISO and carbon neutral business, Futures Supplies’ staff training and development programme is exemplary, as is their policy to offer opportunities to disadvantaged young people and commitment to become a ‘Living Wage Employer’.
Their support of local as well as national charities is longstanding – a real example of giving back to the local community. Behind this family business lies a genuine success story of a women entrepreneur who has combated a challenging upbringing and presents a tremendous role model and inspiration to women and indeed all local entrepreneurs. She is really inspirational”.
Futures Supplies are delighted to bring you the new Katrin Range of Dispensers launched by Metsä Tissue for the workplace and beyond.
This new range takes into account the needs of a wide selection of users and of course includes children, the elderly and those who are visually impaired or have physical disabilities.
With Katrin Inclusive Dispensers, the paper is easy to remove, and can be pulled out with one hand. Contrasting colours make the dispenser openings easy to see. Large “push faces” are effortless to use, and braille text also helps the visually impaired.
Dispensers that open upwards make it much easier for people of all heights to fill and simple graphical signage shows how they should be used and maintained. All of the dispensers are easy to disassemble and are made from durable ABS and polypropylene plastic, both of which are totally reusable.
The new Katrin Inclusive Dispenser range consists of 10 dispenser types, including new models for the Katrin System Hand Towel and Toilet Roll range. The extended range includes matching bins as well as well as elegant dispensers for facial tissues.
