Dyson have been shortlisted in the second annual Private Business Awards, sponsored by PwC, in association with HSBC Private Bank and in support of the charity LEAP.
The companies shortlisted for the awards, which celebrate the best in the private business sector and underline its importance to the UK economy, beat over 600 high quality entries from across the UK.
Dyson, who are a world leader for their vacuum products, continue to innovate and this year The Dyson Hot represented the group’s new product line using Air Mulitplier technology for long range heat projection.
Tracey Bentham, regional Private Business and tax business unit leader, at PwC said: “Much has been said about the importance of Private business to the recovery of the UK economy and these awards celebrate those private companies who have been leading the way in a difficult economic environment. "In a year when the focus of the world is on the UK, these businesses really do represent the ‘Best of British’ and to be short-listed from over 600 applicants is to be congratulated.
“The shortlist contains recognisable names and brands alongside some less well known, but equally successful companies across the length and breadth of the UK."
Charlie Hoffman, MD, HSBC Private Bank added: “Private businesses are an integral part of both the UK’s economy and HSBC Private Bank’s strategy. The Private Business Awards offers a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the sector’s companies and individuals and showcase the outstanding talent within the private sector in the UK.”
The winners of the Private Business Awards will be announced at a dinner to be held at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London on Thursday 6 September 2012.
