A MAJOR re-structuring of the business has led to a predicted record turnover of £1.6million for 2012 - and now the Small Business of the Year award.

Labour Tech, based in Ely, has also expanded into the agricultural, engineering, administration and catering sectors.

The judges said: “Despite adverse marketing conditions Labour Tech Recruitment has continued to grow by restructuring the business, diversifying into other business sectors and investing in new initiatives.

“Its diversification strategy has increased revenue and raised their profile as recruitment experts through partnerships with local organisations.”



Has grown from a one-woman venture in a spare room to a business that employs seven people with a turnover of more than £500,000.

It was voted the country’s best bead store for 2012, as voted by the readers of Beads & Beyond Magazine.


The web design agency has delivered a number of new websites this year, with sales in excess of £100,000 per annum and an operating profit of more than 58 per cent.

The company is now looking to recruit an apprentice.


The order fulfilment company handles distribution for small to medium-sized businesses and aims to save customers time and money spent on warehousing, staffing and despatching costs.
