VBH extended its recent run of success by winning the Product Innovation category at the Medway Business Awards.
The MBAs were established in 1984 to fanfare the rejuvenation of the Medway area following the closure of the Royal Naval Dockyard, which caused massive unemployment in the Medway Towns at that time.
This is the first time that VBH has entered, and the judges were impressed with what they saw during their visit to the company’s Gillingham head office in September.
The award is in recognition of VBH’s greenteQ product development, particularly on Lifestyle products, including the Clearspan bifold gear, Clearlift lift/slide hardware, and associated Aspire handles.
Gary Gleeson, marketing manager at VBH, said: “VBH has been in Medway since 1982 and it’s wonderful for the company to be recognised in this way. It’s a big pat on the back for the whole VBH team, and is particularly satisfying for those who, like me, are proud to call the Medway Towns home.”
The winners were announced at a gala dinner at Gillingham FC’s Priestfield Stadium banqueting hall on November 15.
