businesses. The financial outcomes were impressive and they showed positive
collaboration with Universities.”

honoured and thrilled to have won in this highly competitive category. It is a whole team
effort that has led us here and I couldn’t be more proud of everyone. Not only the Jaltek
team but also our customers and suppliers. Jaltek has evolved and grown significantly in
recent years. As part of this we have transferred some of the skills and expertise employed
in serving the needs of our larger customers to support smaller enterprises. The team has
relished the opportunity to work with new disruptive technologies and partner with highpotential start-ups. The culture within our business is collaborative, enabling and always
open to meeting new challenges and I’m excited to see what we do next.’
