BTS Façades and Fabrications, secured a prestigious award at Aycliffe Business Park, Make Your Mark Awards at nearby Redworth Hall on Friday.

We were shortlisted in three categories: Engineering and Manufacturing, Environment and Company of the Year

And BTS took home the trophy for the Engineering and Manufacturing award.

The celebrations at Redworth Hall came after the team spent a night in Glasgow for the FSB awards, where the construction company secured the Family Business of the Year award for the North East.


Our managing director, Philip Atkinson, was delighted to have received recognition for his family-run business, which was praised by judges for its dedication to precision manufacturing and its commitment to the environment.

“I’m flabbergasted,” he said.

“Out of the three categories, to have won Engineering and Manufacturing is fantastic because it’s what we do.

“To be recognised for what we’ve done in automation, from LEAN projects to our investment in machinery and mechanisation – it was the award for us.

“It means so much to BTS, we couldn’t have done it without the team. It was a pleasure to be able to celebrate with them on Friday.

“We’ve got an engaged workforce, a happy workforce and a successful workforce, and I’m so proud of where the BTS family have come.”

We have also been shortlisted in the Tall Building Awards and are proudly sponsoring the RCI 2022 Façade Awards later this year.
