2017 Results

Congratulations to all of our Award Winners 2017

It was a night of celebration for Chesterfield firm Thermotex Engineering at the Derbyshire Times Business Awards. The family-run company based on Broom Business Park in the town won a hat-trick of awards while managing director Chloe Watmore won the coveted Business Person of the Year.  Chloe impressed judges for her ‘passion’ for business ‘by improving staff morale and the aesthetics of the company’.  They said she had ‘worked hard to change mindsets to gain the support not only from the team, but the suppliers and customers too’.
Chloe and her firm’s success came during a glittering black-tie awards ceremony, which saw the cream of the county’s commerce and industry honoured at Chesterfield’s Casa Hotel
More than 170 people attended the event, which was hosted by Sam Ogrizovic – nephew of former Spireite goalkeeper Steve.
