ID equipment supplier wins award for business excellence - a supplier to HMPS, retail, education, healthcare and leisure sectors.

On Thursday night at the Business Excellence Awards, Scunthorpe-based business, Infocus ID, took the title for Best Import & Export Company fighting off competition from Europe and the UK. The company is the leading specialist supplier of new and refurbished ID and badge card printers, a niche market which has seen them forging ahead, doubling their staff and turnover in the last 3 years. Infocus ID are proud to be the only supplier of refurbished card printers to be backed by all main manufacturers. The company also supplies refurbished industrial label printers to the trade.

Rick Johnson, Managing Director at Infocus ID, was thrilled to collect the award at a black-tie event at Liverpool’s Albert Dock organised by the world’s number one business coaching firm, ActionCOACH. Rick explained, “Winning Best Import & Export Company is a testament to how all of our team understand the company’s vision. We have always maintained that our biggest assets are our staff and our company ethos which is centred on how our customers lie at the heart of everything we do. Our customers include Her Majesty’s Prison Service, schools, the leisure and healthcare sectors and retail.”

With entries from businesses across Europe, the award was hotly contested and took the award sponsors two days to evaluate the entries into a shortlist. Sponsor, Sally Anne Butters from Rev PR, explains why Infocus ID was chosen as the winner, “The team at Infocus ID have systemised their business to support growth and are now in the enviable position of being able to own their premises to achieve further growth of up to 20 times their current size. That’s fantastic news for their sector, their local area and their customers.”

With over four years as a business growth coach, ActionCOACH John McHale has attended many award ceremonies but this one was very special, “The team at Infocus ID work tirelessly to improve themselves and their clients’ service - being part of their journey and witnessing their success is great to see. They all thoroughly deserve the recognition of these prestigious awards.”
