Vistech are Backing the region’s best new Community Champions

Organised by Tees Business, the Best New Tees Business Awards 2022 are being held in association with Teesport operator PD Ports, the region’s biggest private employer.

The awards event will take place in the Pavilion at Kirkleatham Walled Garden on the evening of November 10.

Middlesbrough-based Vistech Services are again sponsoring the Best New Community Champions category for the 2022 Best New Tees Business Awards after backing the same category in the inaugural event last year.

The firm’s managing director Chris Taylor said: “After the success of the 2021 awards, witnessing first-hand the quality of the finalists and winners, their stories and the positive impact their work and initiatives have had across the Tees Valley area, we knew this was a category we wanted to continue to support and encourage.

“We’re very much looking forward to this year’s event and seeing the next cohort of promising new businesses coming to the fore.

“The Community Champions award is an opportunity to recognise companies who have supported our local community and honour those who have gone above and beyond to support the residents of the Tees Valley area this year.

“With many people throughout the UK facing another difficult year with the cost of living crisis, affecting millions, the need to give back and support our local community should be at the forefront of businesses to help where they can.

“At Vistech Services we have been fortunate in that we have been able to continue to grow and therefore, continue to invest and support in the Tees Valley area.

“At a time when business support is vital within the community it has been made difficult for many to prioritise this support.

“As a result, I feel it is important to recognise and celebrate those businesses who have gone above and beyond during the past year to give back and support the Tees Valley community, and the Best New Community Champions category is the perfect platform to do this.”

Tees Business director Martin Walker – pictured above (left) with Vistech operations director Paul Heeran – added: “We’re delighted to have Vistech on board again for the awards after they supported the inaugural event in 2021.

“It’s fantastic that we’re able to celebrate our region’s best new ‘Community Champions’ with this category, and Vistech’s support certainly helps us to make that possible.”

The deadline for entries and nominations for the Best New Tees Business Awards is 5pm on September 9, with the shortlists announced September 22-26.

Entering or nominating is absolutely free, while there are still some sponsorship opportunities available including the category for Best New Hospitality Business.
