Bremont Watch Wins HSBC Global Connections Initiative 2013


Bremont has been named as an overall national winner of HSBC Global Connections 2013 - an initiative to find the most innovative and forward thinking companies in the UK.

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 was chosen from thousands of entries to reach the final alongside nine other regional winners. The awards ceremony was held in Loch Lomond, Scotland, and as a winner the brand will now receive funding to support the development of its future business plans.

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."
