Business at its best

Veka has been recognised for the third time as ‘Large Business of the Year’ at the Burnley Business Awards. 

Veka is said to have impressed judges with its strategic approach to business during and after a pandemic as well as its ongoing commitment to its people. A spokesperson from Burnley Business Awards said: “Veka plc stood out for having revolutionised its approach to its people over the last 18 months, with an attractive employee package. The business also demonstrated innovative projects to diversify its product range into new sectors and a commitment to the green agenda.

Managing director of Veka, Neil Evans, commented: “Although we are a large business, we retain the values of a small family run company, and we are extremely proud of the town where we’ve grown up.

“We’re quite a humble business and we find it hard to blow our own trumpet, but deep down we believe that we’re an asset to Burnley and the town’s manufacturing legacy. Our business is built on a heritage of trust, efficiency, and commitment. Not only do we manufacture a product of exceptional quality and durability, but we also do this responsibly, taking care of the environment and our people.

“Still a family-owned business, our ethos extends to the support of our local economy and those less fortunate. We extend our hand to local schools, charities, and organisations to help create a better every day for everyone in Burnley.”
