Comtek’s contribution to society is acknowledged at the
prestigious National Business Awards 2013

Comtek, a pan-European provider of telecoms and communications equipment repair services, today announced that it has been recognised as a ‘Future Champion’ in ‘The Corporate Citizenship’ category at the National Business Awards. One of just six businesses out of 150 finalists to be named as a ‘Future Champion,’ Comtek was recognised for the active and positive role it plays in supporting the local community as well as national initiatives.

Comtek believes that community development is essential for business and economic progression, and this is apparent in all the company’s operations. From offering repair services that allow companies to operate more sustainably and reduce the impact of e-waste on the environment, to its involvement in initiatives to boost both employment and entrepreneurial skills in the Deeside area across Wales, Comtek is committed to developing programmes which see businesses and society working together for their mutual benefit.

The National Business Awards 2013 event, hosted by Sky’s Dermot Murnaghan, was held at Grosvenor House in London on 12 November, and was attended by more than 1200 of the UK’s most influential business leaders. Prime Minister David Cameron and Prince Andrew, Duke of York, both showed their support for the successful businesses via video message, while Sir Bob Geldof, who was the keynote speaker, attended the event and discussed the importance of private companies for Britain’s growth.

“We’re thrilled and incredibly proud to be recognised as a Future Champion at the National Business Awards, not least because it shows Comtek’s hard work and enthusiasm for community projects,” said Askar Sheibani, CEO and founder of Comtek. “We have proven that by operating sustainably and in partnership with communities, business can become much stronger and more profitable. We hope that our achievement inspires other businesses to invest in their own communities, as this will ultimately build a fairer, more prosperous Britain.”
