Panaz was the winner of the Exporter of the Year and Medium Business of the Year categories at the BIBAs 2013.
With its name on the shortlists for three prizes, textiles firm Panaz had achieved a great deal before its representatives even took their seats at the BIBAs in 2013.
But, chief executive Tony Attard admitted afterwards that going home with the Exporter of the Year and Medium Business of the Year awards was beyond his wildest dreams.
The company, which is based in Fence, near Burnley, has a reputation as one of Europe’s leading suppliers of fabrics and wall coverings to the hospitality, healthcare and corporate sectors
Speaking after the win, Mr Attard said:”We are absolutely thrilled to have been selected out of so many world class companies in Lancashire.
“The BIBAs are a great celebration of enterprise in the region and to win one award is excellent, but to win two is truly exceptional and a tribute to the wonderful hard working team we have at Panaz.”
