Emtelle’s commitment to excellence honoured with President’s Award by Scottish Engineering
Emtelle, the pioneering Scottish technology company, was last night honoured with the President’s Award at the Scottish Engineering Awards in Glasgow.
COO Paul MacLaurin received the prestigious award at a gala dinner at the Hilton Hotel on behalf of Emtelle. The award recognises the company’s continued commitment to the engineering and manufacturing sectors as well as the Scottish Borders, where it provides skilled employment to hundreds of people in its two facilities in Hawick and Jedburgh.
The award also marks what has been an excellent 2023 for Emtelle. The company continues to grow around the world, with a massive new factory being built in Abu Dhabi, as well as a major expansion into North and Central America with a new base in Fletcher, North Carolina.
Tony Rodgers, CEO of Emtelle Group, said: “We are honoured to have received Scottish Engineering President’s Award. My thanks goes to Scottish Engineering CEO Paul Sheerin and his team for organising this excellent evening, as well as the judges, for voting for us.
“This past year has seen Emtelle grow as a global force in manufacturing pre-connectorised, blown fibre cable and ducted network solutions. We have expanded to the US, while work has also started on our new facility in Abu Dhabi, one of the world’s largest. We are especially proud of the recognition of our continued link with the Scottish Borders.
“Our Hawick headquarters and centre of excellence in Jedburgh employ hundreds of people, and are home to our R&D facilities where we make our world-leading products. As we look to the future, we will continue to invest further in local talent, and develop more bespoke solutions to meet the huge demand for fibre globally.”
