Morgan Innovation & Technology (‘Morgan IAT’) scooped the Innovation title at the Family Business of the Year Awards (‘FBOTY’) organised by Family Business United (‘FBU’).
FBU celebrates family owned businesses across the UK, recognising the contribution they make in terms of employment, income generation and wealth creation and the national awards are the culmination of the award journey and a chance to really put family businesses on the map.
In the ‘virtual’ awards ceremony held live online, Morgan IAT took the national Innovation Award presented by Hannah Harris, Head of UK Family Business at PwC, sponsors of this award and were worthy winners of the accolade.
As Paul Andrews, Founder and CEO of FBU explains, “This is a great family business and like many other family firms has many other families working within the organisation. Not only do they design, develop and manufacture their own innovative products for medical and commercial sectors, they also support other inventors, designers and entrepreneurs to get their products to market.”
Hannah adds, “It was great to read about the story and evolution of the business that was founded back in 1997 and their journey to date, not to mention the accolades that they have picked up along the way. Their family values permeate the business and the way that they operate and it is fantastic to see them supporting others and to see the positive impact that they have on the world at large. A truly innovative business and deserving of all the recognition and plaudits that winning this award brings.”
Nigel Clarke, CEO of Morgan IAT is thrilled to accept this award adding that “I am delighted to have won this award as it is a real recognition of the value of family. All the different families that are involved in MIAT play a vital part in our success as the family ethos that prevails encompasses all our employees. I am proud of them all.”
