The night of the year for the Basildon business community saw the town turn out in force to celebrate a year of high achievement.

A particularly tough and rigorous judging procedure involving a written submission followed by a visit from 2 experienced field judges lasting over 2 hours culminated in success for Uniscan Limited.

At the award ceremony presented at Basildon's Towngate Theatre on Friday, July 7, 2006, the Basildon based Walking Frame Manufacturer was presented with the award for manufacturing by Basildon District Council. At a special black tie dinner ceremony hailing the successes of local companies over the last year, representatives from 98 local companies vied for 37 final awards. As usual, the results were a closely guarded secret, only being revealed at the last moment. The names of the winners were read out, Oscar-style, from the stage.

As first time entrants Uniscan were the 'new kids on the block'. Initial applications in the manufacturing category were whittled down to 9 finalists all of whom were invited to the award ceremony. Facing stiff competition from previous winners Uniscan came through to collect the award.
Tom Morris - Managing Director, Geoff Morris - Sales & Marketing Director, Paul Morris - Production Director and Betty Morris - Company Secretary were all at the ceremony to receive their award.

The judges commented:
'starting from nothing and triggered by a request for help by a family member this family company has developed a walking frame business which is defying all the trends in today's manufacturing industry.
Innovation is at the heart of the Uniscan ethos combined with a strong marketing strategy which has ensured Uniscan has prospered where others have failed. The determination to use high-quality materials and provide customers with creative and often unique solutions to the most individual requirements has cleverly avoided competing with lower quality 'one size fits all' foreign imports. The company is committed to maintaining close links with the health industry through communication and training activity as well as being a member of the BHTA.
All this means that Uniscan Limited can remain at the forefront of its field, delivering high quality, world beating products to a wide customer base.'

Geoff Morris, Sales & Marketing Director commented on the award
"This award is a fantastic achievement for the company and our staff. It demonstrates quite clearly how much effort everyone has contributed. The judging procedure was very thorough and allowed us to demonstrate fully our commitment to the manufacturing process through investment, training and development. Receiving such acknowledgement and recognition is a massive boost for us proving beyond doubt that we are getting it right"
