The awards, which are run by the Essex Chronicle and the Gazette, recognise and reward outstanding achievement across a variety of industries and disciplines.
Ground Control has experienced significant growth over the years, thanks to an increasing range of services, new strategic alliances and new personnel.
Company managing director Dr Marcus Watson said: "Being a finalist in the 'Best Growing Business' category of the awards is a fantastic achievement and really underlines the confidence our customers show in our services year on year.
"It gives great recognition to all at Ground Control who have worked hard to make us the company we are today."
The awards ceremony will be held on 25 September.
