Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUSINESS -

The Win­dow Film Com­pany, based in Ash­eridge Road, has been short­listed for Thames Val­ley Busi­ness Mag­a­zine’s SME of the Year award, which is judged on cri­te­ria in­clud­ing cur­rent busi­ness per­for­mance, growth over the past two years, in­no­va­tion and con­tri­bu­tion the in­dus­try.

The com­pany, which was founded by Micky Cal­cott in 1998, now has ad­di­tional premises in Lon­don, but has al­ways had a pres­ence in Buck­ing­hamshire and em­ploys 28 full time staff.

Mr Cal­cott said the nom­i­na­tion has come af­ter an­other suc­cess­ful year.

He said: “I’m ab­so­lutely de­lighted to have made the short­list. We were vis­ited by a judg­ing panel as part of the process and in ex­plain­ing to them some of the achieve­ments we’ve man­aged this year it occurred to me just how busy we’ve been!

“The year started with a move to big­ger premises. Whilst the dis­tance we moved wasn’t far, Higham Mead to Ash­eridge Road, the two prop­er­ties are poles apart.

“We’re now in a fully re­fur­bished two-storey head­quar­ters, with an en­tire floor ded­i­cated to our print and graph­ics depart­ment. The move has al­lowed us to in­vest in new equip­ment – we pur­chased a new wide for­mat printer in Fe­bru­ary, and the in­creased space has meant we’ve been able to add valu­able new mem­bers of staff across de­part­ments.

“To top it all off our client base has con­tin­ued to grow and we’ve recorded an­other rise in yearly turnover, so it’s hard not to be pleased with the way things have gone. For all the hard work we’ve put in to be recog­nised with an award nom­i­na­tion is ob­vi­ously very pleas­ing, but what­ever the out­come I’m de­lighted with the way things have gone.”

The win­ners will be an­nounced at a black-tie din­ner at the Madesjski Sta­dium in Read­ing tonight
