Chaneco is celebrating after picking up a prestigious award at the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) annual awards dinner, held at the Tower Hotel in London a few days ago. The BHTA represents over 450 company members, many of which are the largest and most influential in the healthcare industry.
The evening was compered by Angela Rippon with sports presenter Garry Richardson also playing a part in proceedings. The award was the BHTA Excellence Award 2011 for Best Orthotic Supplier.
Over 250 of the leading figures in the healthcare industry attended the event, which saw awards being presented in recognition of outstanding product design, customer service and team performance. References were sought from many of Chaneco’s customers, suppliers and clinicians and the praise could not have been higher.
Ray Hodgkinson, Director General of the BHTA, congratulated the team at Chaneco and commented that the award was richly deserved. “The awards we present each year are given only after a rigorous process involving a panel of judges and the winners represent excellence in what is an important and growing marketplace. This is one of the fastest growing and most important market sectors and one in which excellence in product design and customer service really does mean a great deal to the customers, many of whom rely on our member companies to maintain their independence.”
Chaneco Senior Partner, Helen Hanley added: “Being presented with the award, particularly in front of so many members of the industry, was a real achievement and reflects the hard work by everyone throughout the company. We also celebrated our 40th anniversary last month and this award was the icing on the cake at the end of another successful year.”
