Award success for Martin-Kaye client

One of our clients has secured a prestigious business award for their innovative products. The Green Roof Tile Company, which is based on the Battlefield Enterprise Park in Shrewsbury, scooped the Lord Stafford Award for Sustainability for their new Envirotile product.

Stuart Haynes, who is a senior member of our Commercial Team, handles their account and was invited to attend the official presentation at the University of Birmingham's Great Hall. "It really was a fantastic evening and I'm so proud of Trevor Wakefield and his team - they've worked incredibly hard to develop the Envirotile and to see their efforts recognised at such a high level is a real credit to them," said Stuart.

The Green Roof Tile Company was created with the aim of helping the environment, and has developed a technically advanced alternative to the slate and concrete roof tiles currently on the market. They worked on the project with the University of Wolverhampton and received the award for their partnership approach.

The Lord Stafford Awards were developed in 1997 to celebrate and showcase the best in collaboration between business and universities, and for the first time this year the awards covered both the West and East Midlands with the winners across four categories.
