A Falmouth-based firm has scooped a double-win at the Made in the South West Awards.

Feritech Global secured two prestigious awards celebrating regional manufacturers, at the event held on November 2 at the Bristol Harbour Hotel.

In its 10th year, the awards showcased innovation from entrants across various sectors.

Feritech - which offers a range of marine seabed geotechnical survey equipment to buy or to rent - triumphed in both the categories it entered: the Export Award and the Most Sustainable/Ethical Manufacturer Award.

These wins acknowledge the effort and ingenuity consistently demonstrated by Feritech.

The winners were decided upon by an independent panel of regional experts.

Amidst fierce competition, Feritech MD, Rob Ferris said: "We are thrilled to have won these prestigious awards.

"We were up against very stiff competition and it is fantastic to have our team’s hard work recognised in this way.

"We export to customers in more than 40 countries around the world and our new Innovation Centre near Falmouth has been constructed to take a radical approach to environmental sustainability.

"We are on a mission to prove that the manufacturing industry can work in harmony with the natural environment, as well as pioneer sustainable new ways of working."

Feritech Global will now represent the South West in the Made in the UK Awards in June 2024.
