One of five finalists from across all business sectors, Ground Control won its place because of the company's application of technology to servicing customers across all business streams.
The Billericay, Essex-based contractor will go up against fellow finalists Barclays, Baxi Heating, Legal and General Home Finance and SAM Labs in a Dragons’ Den-style competition on 11 November, where they will present their entry to a team of experienced judges. After judging takes place, the winners are announced at a gala lunch and celebration at Park Plaza, Riverbank, London.
Ground Control sales and marketing director, Andrew Hollyer said getting to the final of the awards was a privilege. "It is a fantastic achievement to be announced as a finalist in the ‘innovation’ category, celebrating our pioneering role in creating leading edge technology to help deliver the outstanding service we pride ourselves on.
"It is amazing how far we have come as a business, achieving a Queen’s Award for Enterprise earlier this year, and to be announced as finalists now, up against some of the country’s biggest names. It is a testament to everyone’s hard work at Ground Control and we look forward to presenting to the judges in November."
