AN Altrincham business fought off stiff competition from firms across Cheshire to be crowned overall winner of a prestigious enterprise award.

More than 400 guests gathered at Chester Racecourse to celebrate the High Sheriff of Cheshire Enterprise Awards earlier this month, hosted by the High Sheriff of Cheshire, Bill Holroyd.

Altrincham-based business Farrat Isolevel Ltd scooped the overall prize, the Award for Enterprise 2015/16, sponsored by Cheshire and Warrington LEP, O2 and ESL Fuels.

Judges were looking for an organisation that had achieved outstanding commercial success and sustainable growth and it appears the Balmoral Road business fitted the bill.

Farrat was established in 1959 and has been designing and manufacturing products for the construction, industry and power generation from its base in Altrincham ever since.

Oliver Farrell, chief executive officer at Farrat Isolevel, said: “This award is a great result for Farrat and wonderful recognition for our achievements so far.

“As an ambitious company, we will make the most of the MBA bursary to develop Farrat further and become ambassadors for Cheshire.”

Farrat Isolevel Ltd wins a place on the University of Chester’s MBA programme, for an appropriately qualified member of staff, worth £10,000.
