Vortex Global Ltd., a solids and bulk handling components company, has been recognised by Solids Handling & Processing Association (SHAPA) as the 2017 Solids Handling Industry Company of the Year.
The award was presented on Tuesday, April 25, at the SHAPA AGM & Solids Handling Industry Awards Dinner, which was hosted at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, England. Other companies honoured on the evening include Russell Finex, who received the Solids Handling Industry Innovation Award, and Perry of Oakley Ltd., who accepted the Solids Handling Industry Export Award.
Entry to these awards was open to all UK-registered, SHAPA member and non-member companies and institutions operating in the solids handling and processing industry. In order to be considered for each award, companies must have demonstrated achievement, improved sales success, or deployment of industry best practices.
Vortex’s Company of the Year recognition is largely due to the company’s rapid growth in both size and sales. Although Vortex has experienced six consecutive years of growth in export markets, most notably, the company realised record growth of 44 per cent in 2016. Such growth was facilitated by the company’s expanding sales portfolio, which now includes more than 50 countries worldwide. In addition, Vortex loading spouts are the fastest growing portion of the portfolio, with Vortex loading equipment now installed on six continents.
“Vortex is grateful and honoured to have received this accolade from SHAPA,” said Travis Young, Executive Vice President of Marketing & Global Strategy at Vortex. “The award serves as a nice reminder to be thankful for all the hard work, dedication, and effort our employee group puts into making this company successful.”
For almost 40 years, Vortex has provided quality slide gates, diverters, iris valves and loading spouts designed specifically for handling dry bulk solids in gravity, vacuum, dilute, or dense phase applications. Vortex valves and spouts are engineered for dependability, durability, easy maintenance, and offer proven solutions to material handling and process efficiency problems. With an in-house team of engineers, Vortex products can be completely customised for individual applications or special installations.
