After a run of award success and recognition this year, Caribbean Blinds has now won The Manufacturing Excellence Award at the 2022 Scale Up Awards.
The Scale-Up Awards, organised by Business Leader, are the first and only awards to focus on the scale-up sector, celebrating high-growth companies and the entrepreneurs that run them.
Held at London’s acclaimed Tobacco Dock, the ceremony attracted more than 450 business leaders, entrepreneurs and VIPs from across the nation. Hosted by comedian Russell Kane, Caribbean Blinds – a UK manufacturer of outdoor shading systems – received its award in front of notable attendees including Theo Paphitis, Josh Robson and Emma Sayle.
Stuart Dantzic, managing director at Caribbean Blinds says: “We went all out and bought a table for the awards evening and took the team with us, so to receive such an accolade for what we all work so hard to achieve was an absolute honour and a cause of great celebration!
“We have always been proud to make the highest quality products at Caribbean Blinds and are the only company in the UK dedicated purely to external shading. This year we have invested in a 10,000 sq ft extension to our factory to ensure we can keep up with demand by being able to hold more raw materials, but drive down lead times. This follows a £100k investment in 2021 in new IT and manufacturing software, specifically built for Caribbean Blinds.
“We strive to be the best and receiving The Manufacturing Excellence Award in a room full of some of the best businesses in the UK was a huge sign that we are achieving this.”
