Going up against the likes of Michelin Tyres and Belu Water they will battle it out for the prestigious award, with the winner being revealed at the National Business Awards gala dinner held on 13th November in London.
Charles Ward, COO of Intellect, judge for the category said: “Adido has shown that traditional approaches - such as engaging the local community and putting something back in - yields results. Consequent improvements in esteem and confidence have led to a growth in sales.”
Andy Headington. Marketing Director and Co-Founder of Adido said: “After a period of re-invention, radical change and exponential growth, we are honoured to have our innovative approach recognised by the award judges amongst the pride of British business.”
The National Business Awards has revealed over 150 of Britain’s leading businesses and business leaders as finalists in the prestigious awards programme. Organisations shortlisted include a range of private, public and third sector companies, including National Grid, Marks and Spencer, and London Early Years Foundation.
All National Business Awards finalists represent an annual turnover in excess of £135 billion and collectively employ over 700,000. They cover activities as diverse as digital marketing, international road haulage and logistics, water engineering and life sciences: sectors that reflect key areas of UK capability with high potential for international expansion.
The diverse size of the companies entering is also huge – ranging from a business with an annual turnover of less than £50k to high growth and high value companies with multi-billion pound revenues.
Baroness Virginia Bottomley, Chair of Judges said: “This year has been a challenging environment for British businesses: these finalists demonstrate how companies are succeeding in the current climate through innovation, originality and tenacity. It’s good to see a broad range of companies both in sector and size – an impressive representation of the potential British businesses have. Congratulations to all our finalists.”
The National Business Awards supports Help for Heroes, a charity that offers support and advice for wounded soldiers.
