The shortlist has been announced for the Somerset Business Awards 2024, with Rotec Hydraulics Ltd named in three of the categories.

Run annually by the Somerset Chamber of Commerce, judges faced a tough time whittling down the huge number of entries for the 2024 awards.

Rotec’s clear business plan, evidenced growth and business ethos to embrace new technologies, provide exemplary customer service and create a positive work environment for all team members has earned them a place on the shortlist for the ‘Large Business of the Year’ award category.

Shortlisted for the new ‘Manufacturing and Engineering’ category at this years’ awards is testament to Rotec’s innovative research and development projects and their proven revenue growth and expansion of services. Rotec is proud to boast a number of long-standing, market-leading clients who year on year submit outstanding customer reviews, in addition to those received from new business.

Perhaps the most hotly contested category, Rotec has been shortlisted for ‘Service Excellence’ following their consistently excellent customer survey results and track record of shaping our business plan in line with our client’s needs.

Somerset Chamber Executive Director, Emma Rawlings, said,

“I am really looking forward to the final as it always a great opportunity to celebrate the successes and achievements of Somerset’s many incredible businesses and organisations.”

Paul Prouse, Managing Director of Rotec Hydraulics, commented,

“We’re delighted to be announcing Rotec has been shortlisted for three 2024 Somerset Business Awards. Having won the Somerset Manufacturer & Producer Award earlier this year, being successfully shortlisted again is testament to our consistently hardworking and diverse team of employees who have continued to provide solutions and outstanding products and services.”

This year is the 19th anniversary of the awards, which are again supported by main sponsor Albert Goodman. The grand final will be hosted by Global broadcast journalist Cormac MacMahon at the Winter Gardens Pavilion, in Weston-super-Mare, on March 22, 2024.
