Dorset-based BOFA International has been named Mid-Market Company of the Year at BDO’s gala dinner last week at St Mary’s Stadium in Southampton.
Dorset-based BOFA International has grown to become a global leader in fume and dust extraction technology for a wide range of industries including laser, electronics, mechanical engineering, printing and 3D printing, and pharmaceutical.
The company recently celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2017, received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise (Innovation), strengthened its senior management team, and revealed plans for their new head office and centre of excellence.
BOFA also opened a new office in Germany, added a business development function in Poland, bolstered the sales team for its US operation, BOFA Americas, and announced an expansion of its UK footprint.
The event was hosted by BBC South Today’s Laura Trant and celebrated the success of the region’s mid-sized companies, including BOFA and finalists Nature’s Way Foods and Sydenhams.
The companies were identified as being the Central South region’s leading mid-sized businesses in the areas of international activity and profit growth.
Judges were reportedly impressed by BOFA’s leadership and vision, helping to drive innovation, expansion into new markets, and sustained growth with strong prospects for the future.
Furthermore, rhe business has adopted a well-defined three-year plan that includes investment in new technologies and a strong focus on retaining and rewarding their people.
BOFA International managing director, Tony Lockwood commented: “We are thrilled to win this award, which is testament to all the hard work and effort put in by the team. There are great opportunities for our technology around the world as awareness grows about the value of our systems, not just in keeping people safe in the workplace but in improving productivity.”
