A CHE­SHAM based com­pany has been recog­nised with third place at a pres­ti­gious awards cer­e­mony.

The Win­dow Film Com­pany, which has been based in Che­sham for the ma­jor­ity of its 17 year history, re­ceived the award in the best SME cat­e­gory at the Thames Val­ley Busi­ness Mag­a­zine Awards, held at the Made­jski Sta­dium, in Read­ing.

The awards were open to ev­ery com­pany in the Thames Val­ley re­gion and were set up to recog­nise in­no­va­tion, prof­itabil­ity and em­ploy­ment, as well as con­tri­bu­tion to the lo­cal econ­omy and sup­port to cul­ture and char­i­ties in the Thames Val­ley Area.

Hav­ing been in­cluded on a short­list of six, the com­pany’s founder, Micky Cal­cott, ac­cepted the third place award from BBC news an­chor Huw Ed­wards.

In speak­ing af­ter the event, he said: “2015 has been an­other ex­cit­ing year for us. We’ve moved to big­ger premises, taken on ad­di­tional staff, in­vested in new equip­ment and have done more busi­ness than ever be­fore, so it’s nice to know that this was recog­nised by the judges.

“We’re aware it isn’t just busi­ness per­for­mance that was con­sid­ered though, with in­volve­ment and con­tri­bu­tion to the lo­cal com­mu­nity a key judg­ing cri­te­ria.

“We’re proud of our links to the area – we’ve been based in Buck­ing­hamshire since be­ing founded in 1998 – and as well as em­ploy­ing 28 lo­cal staff, we’re also in­volved with a num­ber of char­i­ties in the re­gion.

“It’s im­por­tant that as a rel­a­tively suc­cess­ful com­pany we do what we can to pro­vide sup­port where pos­si­ble, so we are proud to be in­volved with or­gan­i­sa­tions such as the Hospice of St Fran­cis, Ren­nie Grove and the Chilterns Dog Res­cue So­ci­ety.”

He added: “While we’d ob­vi­ously have liked to take first place, I’m hugely proud that the com­pany has been recog­nised with this award. There were a large num­ber of en­trants, so to have come third in such a com­pet­i­tive cat­e­gory is rea­son to cel­e­brate and is a great end to a mem­o­rable year.”

The Win­dow Film Com­pany is based at An­glo Busi­ness Park, in Ash­eridge Road, Che­sham, and is recog­nised as in­dus­try lead­ers in the sup­ply of win­dow films and printed graph­ics.
