Attracting sponsors from all industries such as retail, law, recruitment and education, the Derby Telegraph Business Awards has become somewhat of a hub for local companies to come together and celebrate the success of the business community they each play a part in shaping.
The annual event, which welcomes hundreds of guests including these said sponsors, will be returning to The Roundhouse at Derby College on Wednesday 13 June. Helping to raise the profile of the event, and celebrate the shortlisted businesses in each category, sponsors play a crucial part in the awards’ makeup.
One such business adding to the prestige of this year’s event, is Berkshire Hathaway company, Lubrizol Corporation.
The leading company combine complex speciality chemicals to optimise the quality, performance and value of their customers' products while reducing their environmental impact.
Despite not being a common household name, Lubrizol technologies are used in everyday products such as in fluids in the shampoos and soaps we use, in the medicine we take, in the clothes we wear and in the electronic devices in our homes.
With a worldwide presence, the Derby Telegraph Business Awards are thrilled to have the company on board as the sponsors behind the Excellence in Science and Technology award. This category pays tribute to businesses in the region that are dedicated to continually advancing their services and are committed to the sustainability of their business.
Speaking of their sponsorship of the category, Simon Griffiths, General Manager at Lubrizol Hazelwood, said: “We are very proud to sponsor the Excellence in Science and Technology Award as this subject is key to the success of Lubrizol. We know the importance of innovation and strive for new technology in science and engineering to develop much needed additive solutions across the world. Good Science leads to a better life, and we support success in such areas.”
With an innovative offering, and a presence in households and businesses around the world, there is no denying the contribution Lubrizol make to communities locally, nationally and internationally.
Emphasising the scope of their worldwide, and local contribution, Simon said: “Our products are in businesses all over the world, in the vehicles that we drive, in manufacturing process, in the farming industry, across pharmaceuticals and thousands of other everyday applications, too many to list. So, we are confident that we contribute in a huge way to this region’s business community and to also to the people who live in and around Derbyshire.
He continued: “Not only that, we also recruit the majority of our Hazelwood workforce from across this region and our customers and overseas visitors enjoy the fantastic hospitality industries available to them throughout the county.”
