Bolton based, Parcel2go, the UK’s leading parcel delivery comparison website has been awarded ‘Top 15 fastest growing technology companies’ at the 2018 Northern Tech Awards.
The awards which have been running since 2011 work in partnership with technology investment bank, GP Bullhound. Together they discover, recognise and celebrate the biggest tech success stories in the north. Each year they are hosted in a different city, with this year’s being held in Edinburgh, one of Europe’s tech hub hotspots.
This isn’t the first time the Bolton based company have been honoured with an award at the Northern Tech Awards, last year they were recognised as one of the top 100 fastest growing technology companies and in 2015 they were awarded ‘Most innovative company in the North’
Parcel2Go’s Managing Director, Adam Harris was delighted with the award: “It’s such an honour to be recognised once again as one of the fastest growing technology companies. The Northern Tech Awards is such a prestigious event, which highlights all the incredible and innovative work coming out of the North, for us it’s all about the next big thing we can do and being a pioneer within the technology world and receiving acknowledgment like this means we are on the right path. We hope to be back again next year as we continue to grow and develop.”
The winners were selected by a panel of high-profile judges, from some of the UK’s leading and innovative technology companies. This year new judges including Sherry Coutu CBE, Chair of Founders4Schools and Melinda Matthews, chief executive of the Edinburgh-based digital skills academy CodeClan, joined established judges such as David Rowan, founding editor of Wired UK.
Parcel2Go have now won at the Northern Tech Awards several times, alongside other notable awards within the industry, but there’s still room for further progression and innovation. The brand will continue to develop and grow, continuously coming up with new ways to continue to be the leader in its field.
