Spiroflow Doubles Up on UK Company of the Year Awards
MONROE, NC – Spiroflow Ltd. has won two Company of the Year awards, adding the UK-based Food Processing magazine accolade in June to the UK SHAPA (Solids Handling and Processing Association) Company of the Year Award presented in April.
Spiroflow Ltd., which serves customers in the UK and Europe, edged out strong competition for the SHAPA title, which is given to the UK organization that has achieved the most by promoting best practices, setting aspirational industry standards and increasing sales. Just weeks later, the UK-based Food Processing magazine awarded Spiroflow Ltd. its 2014 Company of the Year distinction for engineering excellence.
Spiroflow is widely known for its custom powder handling equipment, and company growth has allowed for important investments in infrastructure, namely IT, health and safety, training, and additional staff.
UK Marketing Director, Cathy Podevyn, says she’s thrilled with the awards, “It’s made me realize just how much we have achieved over the last three years. The company has enjoyed strong profits, steady sales growth, and a solid and growing bank of key customers. Above all, I am grateful to our strong team of tenured colleagues who have made our success possible through the years and for our young team members who will propel us forward.”
Spiroflow Ltd. marked the January opening of its new state-of-the-art technology center near its manufacturing facility in the Lancashire town of Clitheroe. Customers benefit enormously from the technology center’s unique powder characterization and testing laboratory. The company actively encourages customers to use the fully equipped test center before purchasing any of its bulk material handling equipment.
UK-based Spiroflow Ltd., as well as U.S.-based Spiroflow Systems Inc. and Spiroflow Automation Solutions Inc., are wholly owned subsidiaries of Spiroflow Holdings Inc. Spiroflow is a world-leading manufacturer of equipment for handling dry bulk solids in powder, granule, pellet and flake form across a wide spectrum of process industries.
