A Halifax-based business that supplies raw materials and finished goods to manufacturing companies across the UK has won a prestigious business award.
Textile Innovations, which specialises in sourcing raw materials and finished goods for major UK and EU manufacturing operations, has won the Eaton Smith Business of the Month Award for May.
The awards recognise and reward businesses of any size located throughout Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield who are excelling in their area.
Textile Innovations has doubled its number of customers in the past twelve months and increased its turnover by 30 per cent, almost hitting the million pound mark for the first time.
David Holdsworth is one of the Holdsworth family who established John Holdsworth and Company, which was based at Shaw Lodge Mills in Halifax.
After the family firm was sold in 2007, David decided to put that expertise to good use with his new business, Textile Innovations, sourcing materials to create products such as disposable surgical masks, rubber car mats and retail bags.
He said: “It’s fantastic to receive such independent recognition of all the hard work put in by our team and local associates. We are very honoured and this award has given us yet another boost to drive our businesses forward.”
Textile Innovations will now compete for the annual award at the Cedar Court, Huddersfield in July.
