OpalTec International, provider of barcode and mobility solutions, has won a prestigious Bristol Evening Post Business Award. OpalTec beat strong competition from some of Bristol's finest businesses to scoop the award at a black-tie ceremony in the heart of the city.
The awards ceremony, now in its fourth year, has become a highly anticipated event in Bristol's business calendar. Over two hundred guests gathered at the Marriott Hotel to celebrate the achievements of every business that entered. When choosing the winners, the independent panel of judges, chaired by the Managing Director of Bristol News and Media, considered criteria such as profits, ethos, and future potential. OpalTec were delighted when they were named winners of the award for 'Best company with a turnover not more than 5 million'.
OpalTec provides cutting-edge barcode and mobility solutions to customers internationally in the retail, logistics, healthcare and service delivery sectors. Applications include stock management, electronic proof of delivery and order picking. "OpalTec decided to enter the Business Awards because we're proud of our success, particularly throughout the past few years when facing a tough economic climate," says Mark Hamilton-Davies, Managing Director.
OpalTec was founded in 1998 with virtually no start-up capital and now has a turnover of 4.5 million. OpalTec has thirty-five employees, including a team of Directors with combined industry experience of over fifty years, plus skilled technical staff and dedicated account managers. The company has built close relationships with leading manufacturers such as Motorola, Zebra Technologies and Intermec. "We are thrilled to receive this award", says Mark, "and I would like to thank the entire team at OpalTec, as well as all of our customers, partners and suppliers for their support. We're glad to receive recognition from the Bristol business community for our achievements. We look forward to continued growth and a bright future."
