Winners of the 2022 Northants Business Awards

Pilkington Communications has been crowned West Northamptonshire’s Business of the Year at the 2022 Northants Business Awards.

Founded in 2015, the Northampton-based PR and communications agency specialises in supporting not-for-profit organisations, those in the creative and cultural sector and businesses making a positive social impact.

The awards, which were organised by the Northants Chamber of Commerce, are an annual celebration of the best businesses from throughout the county.

This year’s brand-new category was sponsored by West Northamptonshire Council (WNC) in a bid to recognise the stand-out business that has contributed to the local economy and demonstrated business growth in West Northants.

Jessica Pilkington, Pilkington Communications Founder and Director, said: "We have an inspiring not for profit sector here in Northamptonshire and we are proud to focus our skills on supporting these charities, social enterprises, community groups and Third Sector organisations to survive, thrive and do their incredible work.

"We love what we do, helping these organisations embrace digital marketing to recruit, fundraise, promote themselves and stand out from the crowd. Thank you for this award - we are over the moon."

David Chadwick, Pilkington Communications Co-director, added: “We have successfully expanded our business by thinking differently about recruitment. We pride ourselves on nurturing young talent and mentoring and training local graduates in order to develop our own pipeline of skilled, committed staff."

The awards were open to all businesses across the region that have clearly demonstrated all-round business excellence in a range of areas, including marketing and business strategy, business growth, community involvement, people development and exceptional customer service, with a total of 13 awards being handed out this year.

The finalists included Pilkington Communications, Competitive Edge Training & Consultancy Ltd and Northampton Leisure Trust / Trilogy Leisure.

Cllr Daniel Lister, WNC’s Cabinet Member for economic development, town centre regeneration and growth, said: “West Northants has a wonderfully strategic location and is home to thousands of successful businesses, but as always it is the people that make it truly special.

"Our local businesses pour their heart and soul into their enterprise and deliver innovation and growth to drive our economy forward. But most of all they are a demonstration of what success looks like and can be a driver for others to achieve the same.

"I am thrilled to see WNC sponsor these awards and celebrate the success of our home-grown business talent and raise awareness of the quality employers in West Northants.

"A huge congratulations to Pilkington Communications, you are an asset to our area and I am delighted to see your business continuing to thrive in West Northamptonshire."

Louise Wall, CEO of Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce quote: "We are so delighted that West Northamptonshire Council could sponsor our awards to highlight and celebrate the success of local businesses in the West Northamptonshire area.

"Huge congratulations again to all the West Northamptonshire businesses that were finalists and winners this year and thank you again to West Northamptonshire Council for their continued support."
