After the third year of these awards, the judges emphasized how they continued to be impressed by the technical creativity and business awareness of UK companies.

The BEEA's showed that UK companies are competing on a global stage and holding their own. For two of of the first three years of the Awards the Grand Prix has gone to a company with 10 or fewer employees and the Judges Prize has gone to equally small companies over that period.

Graham Pitcher, Group Editor of Findlay Media Engineering Design Division, commented that "the vast majority of UK technology businesses are small operations, but being small doesn't disqualify you from being creative or commercially astute" .

Triteq were delighted to be nominated for two awards - British Consultancy of the Year and Electronic Product of the Year Award and with the exciting number of projects that are currently under development at our new headsquarters in The Innovation Centre we will certainly be back in 2012.
