These awards showcase local businesses over 12 categories including: Start-up’, ‘Apprentice’, ‘Small and Medium-sized Business’ and ‘Large Business’. The ceremony was held at the Portsmouth Guildhall and over 400 businessmen and women joined together to celebrate the regions success stories.
Fasset Ltd was shortlisted in their category along with ten other local businesses all of whom were able to show business growth and success over the last year. Based at Langstone Technology Park, Fasset is currently achieving occupancy levels of approx. 98%, is a significant local employer (over 100 staff onsite); and estimates that in 2011 it invested £15m in the wider green economy.
Fasset has also instigated innovative projects like the onsite pre-school nursery and outdoor fitness sessions; continued their support of the Education Business Partnership; achieved a record 92% for overall customer satisfaction; supported community and education projects such as the art show for students at Havant College; and put environmental issues firmly on the agenda with recycling targets and interactive forums.
The Fasset Managing Director Gary Medlow took to the stage to collect the award: “This is a fantastic achievement for Fasset and I am delighted to collect this on behalf of the whole team. We were up against some tough competition from local businesses and so it is a real testament to what we have accomplished at Langstone Technology Park as we continue to prove why we are the premier business park in the South today. Thanks to the judging panel and our supporters across the region. I believe that Fasset is contributing to the economic and business development of Havant and this year so far the signs are all good.”
