Ray Singh, Managing Director of the Russell Group expresses his thoughts on winning this award:
“It is truly a privilege to be recognized for our contribution to business in the region. While many businesses of our type have moved their manufacturing overseas, we have continued to invest and recruit people to meet the demands of our ever growing global customer base and brand. Russell Finex is a unique company which continues to buck the trends of UK manufacturing and this award is a testament to the hard work and effort put in by all our employees to not only keep jobs in this Borough but to increase our numbers as we continue to go from strength to strength.”
