Xmo Strata wins National Business Award

26 July, 2009

Sign installation and maintenance company Xmo Strata, which numbers several of the leading oil companies amongst its customers, has added to its already groaning trophy cabinet. The firm (which is based in Kent but operates across the UK) won the Health, Work and Well-being Award for small business in the South of England in the National Business Awards Regional Programme.



Managing director Steve Martin picked up the award at a glittering black tie occasion at The Hilton Hotel, Park Lane, London, from TV newsreader Katie Derham who hosted the event.

Xmo Strata claims to have the most highly qualified sign engineers in the UK and its website boasts an impressive list of award wins stretching back many years.  

The judges praised the company for culture, and for leadership, innovation and employee engagement “fuelled by regulatory challenges and growth”.

“To win an award like this from a list of finalists which was dominated by health and wellbeing companies was absolutely phenomenal,” said Mr Martin.

“Health and safety nowadays is about much more than simply looking after your employees, although that is clearly a key motivating factor.  It’s closely linked to training, staff development and quality and is about generating value for customers by reducing repeat call outs and getting the work right first time.  It is also – of course – about reducing the customer’s exposure to liability.”

Lorraine Agnew, of headline sponsors Orange, said:  “The success of each winner should be highlighted so that suppliers, partners and customers know that they are dealing with an organisation that is forward thinking and vibrant in its approach.” 

The company’s awards cabinet is packed with awards going back years, many of them from major oil companies.
