SCS will receive tailored business support from the competition’s multinational partner companies, as well as business training, financial mentoring, media support, and a cash prize of £10,000.

Dr Jörg Feist, SCS Managing Director (pictured second left receiving the award), said: “The team at Sensor Coating Systems is extremely delighted to win this prestigious award.
