The TWI Award is to recognise companies that have in the last 12 months successfully exploited or exported a technology, product or service into international or emerging markets.
Amino has successfully grown its business in the knowledge that these days the public want everything on the TV and it demonstrated this in abundance to the judging panel with its recent huge growth in export, notably to Italy and Russia.
Listed on AIM, Amino has seen turnover lift 18% over the past year to £51.8m, and recently announced its maiden dividend to shareholders.
Amino CEO Donald McGarva said: ‘We’re delighted to win this prestigious award. It’s a real testimony to the efforts of everyone at Amino in delivering great quality products and support to our customers around the world. We continue to innovate and target new markets and we look forward to competing again in next year’s award.’
