Bremont Watch Wins HSBC Global Connections Initiative 2013
Wednesday - 19 June 2013
The luxury watch brand shares the award with Brompton Bicycles, in the first time that two businesses have been named joint winners of the initiative.
"Our two winners represent the pinnacle of UK manufacturing," said Steve Price, Head of Business Banking at HSBC. "Their innovative thinking has seen them succeed in multiple export markets, and they have a strong focus on giving back to the communities they operate in. The quality was so high between our finalists and we felt that it was appropriate to make both of these outstanding businesses Global Connections winners."
Bremont co-founder Giles English said: "We've spent a lot of time with the other finalists and they are all amazing companies so to be chosen as the winners is a huge honour. I am so proud for everyone involved in the business and it will be mean a huge amount to them all. For someone outside the business to recognise that we're doing the right thing is a great boost."
