WITH new businesses in Wiltshire on the rise, one Corsham company has been crowned Start-Up Business of The Year at the Wiltshire Business Awards.

Sponsored by The Enterprise Network, the award is the first in Wiltshire Business’ Awards history to keep up with innovative and upcoming businesses.

Stuart Pearce, SMARTech MD, said: “Wow is probably the best word to describe how we feel right now.

“The reason for our success is innovative products and the service we offer, which includes taking our customers on a nine stage journey, from the energy state they come to us in to leaving them in a far better position.

“That service is what has won us national clients. This is the fourth award we’ve won this year, which we’re incredibly proud of. We’re looking to expand the company later this year, so 2016 is huge for us.”
