Gartec’s Graham Parr Receives Buckinghamshire Business Award

12 September 2016

The Buckinghamshire Business Awards are designed to celebrate prominent members of the local business community – we have had a hugely successful couple of years and we think that this recognition is well deserved.

 

BUSINESS LEADER OF THE YEAR

We are very pleased to announce that Graham Parr – the MD of Gartec – has been awarded Business Leader of the Year at the 2016 Buckingham Business Awards. This is a great accolade for a business that has designed some of the most innovative and forward thinking products for the home lifts and platform lifts industry. With Graham at the helm we have had a hugely successful couple of years and we think that this recognition is well deserved.

 

THE AWARDS

The Buckinghamshire Business Awards are designed to celebrate prominent members of the local business community. The awards are an opportunity for local businesses to show that they are leaders in their field, excelling through hard work and entrepreneurial vision. The individual awards are all about recognising the spirit of entrepreneurship that has made Buckinghamshire such a successful local business community. Graham was up against some pretty tough competition this year and it’s a real achievement to have won a category like Business Leader of the Year, particularly in a part of the UK where there is so much burgeoning business talent.

 

ACCESSIBILITY FOR EVERYBODY

As Graham says “we provide accessibility for everybody in private homes and in public areas.” When interviewed as a nominee, Graham made the point that the recognition Gartec receives is in a big part due to the team of people behind the product – “if you get the right people in place you can achieve anything,” he says, “we have an open culture, real togetherness, willing to challenge each other and drive forwards.” Gartec has really proven the value of its teamwork by producing products that offer a genuinely life-changing and business-altering way to future proof homes and make businesses more accessible. Whether an SME looking to provide better wheelchair access to a shop, or an employer who wants to better comply with anti-discrimination laws, Gartec provides a simple and cost effective way to cut out the stairs for everyone.
