Sara Homer, Executive Chair of Brackmills BID, shares her thoughts on the upcoming 2017 Northamptonshire Logistics Awards…
These awards are a highlight in our Brackmills calendar and we are delighted to be sponsoring a category again – this year the SME Company. On Brackmills we are home to many nationally and internationally renowned brands, but we are also proud to be home to an impressive range of small and medium sized enterprises.
Brackmills Industrial Estate became one of the UK’s first industrial estate Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) in 2009, when businesses voted to pool funding.
The year before, in 2008, Brackmills was a decaying industrial estate, one of the top UK targets for criminal gangs for theft to and from lorries, an area littered with cars, muddy verges and road hazards resulting in fatalities.
Fast forward and crime is at an all-time low and our sense of corporate at an all time high. We are one of the UK’s leading logistics hubs, we are proud to be at the heart of the logistics community and would urge businesses to enter, sponsor these awards and join us in this county wide celebration.
We would like to wish all finalists the best of luck and look forward to spending an evening celebrating all that is wonderful and exceptional about Northamptonshire logistics.
