The award was presented on April 25 at the SHAPA AGM & Solids Handling Industry Awards Dinner, which was hosted at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, England.
Entry to these awards was open to all U.K.-registered, SHAPA member and non-member companies and institutions operating in the solids handling and processing industry. In order to be considered for each award, companies must have demonstrated achievement, improved sales success, or deployment of industry best practices.
Vortex’s recognition is largely due to the company’s rapid growth in both size and sales. Although Vortex has experienced six consecutive years of growth in export markets, most notably, the company realized record growth of 44% in 2016. Such growth was facilitated by the company’s expanding sales portfolio, which now includes more than 50 countries worldwide. In addition, Vortex loading spouts are the fastest growing portion of the portfolio, with Vortex loading equipment now installed on six continents.
“Vortex is grateful and honored to have received this accolade from SHAPA,” said Travis Young, executive vice-president of marketing and global strategy at Vortex. “The award serves as a nice reminder to be thankful for all the hard work, dedication, and effort our employee group puts into making this company successful.”
