Feritech, which is based near Falmouth in Cornwall, has scooped the ‘International Success’ award in the Tech South West Awards 2021. The winners were announced at a live event at Market Hall, Plymouth, on 25th November.
Feritech MD Rob Ferris says: “This is a huge honour and we are delighted to have won this award in the face of stiff competition from right across the South West region.
“We have customers in over forty countries around the world and we are continuing to build our international business through the strength of our innovation. It is wonderful to have the hard work of our outstanding team recognised.”
Established in 2012, Feritech Global Ltd is a solution provider specialising in designing and building products that are used in extreme marine environments across the globe.
The company provides bespoke solutions to complex engineering problems. Recent contracts have include projects in West Africa, the Gulf of Mexico, Columbia and Australia.
The annual Tech South West Awards cover the whole of the South West region, including Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. They shine a spotlight on the businesses which are leading the way in technology and innovation.
The accolade for Feritech Global coincides with the opening of their new £3m manufacturing facility near Falmouth. The new Feritech Innovation Centre will be the only centre of its kind in the South West, and one of only a very few in the UK, providing all design and build services on a single site, including precision machining, large scale fabrication, embedded software, electronics, hydraulics and 3D printing.
Rob Ferris says: “We are proud to be helping to fly the flag for advanced engineering in Cornwall and helping to shine the spotlight on the extraordinary capabilities and talent in this region.”
