Wirquin wins 2.5 business awards

Wirquin won two prestigious awards and a runner-up position at the Doncaster Chamber Business Awards 2014. “It is a tremendous accolade for us to be locally recognised and celebrated for our business excellence in the South Yorkshire region,” says Gwenhael Le Coent, Managing Director.

“Wirquin is a young manufacturing business in the UK with successful business growth and strong performance, locally, nationally and internationally.”


The first win for Wirquin was awarded for Excellence in Overseas Trade which included moving into new international markets, sales achievements, new product development, and innovative approaches to international sales.


The second award was for Excellence in Innovation and Diversification and Wirquin’s innovative approach to business and achieving success through diversification into new products and markets. The Macdee Motion universal dual flush siphon, made in Doncaster, impressed the judges with its innovative product design that enables it to fit all lever operated cisterns thanks to its many adjustable features.


Managing Director, Gwenhael Le Coent, was awarded runner-up for the Business Person of the Year (36-years and over) for his exceptional vision and effective leadership which have led to successful business growth, strong commercial performance and improving financial results.


Wirquin was shortlisted in four categories, including Large Business of the Year, and scooped the most business awards on the night. Following an initial application, the judges visited the plant to discuss why the company should win above the record number of other applicants representing the best of Doncaster.


The Doncaster Chamber Business Awards ceremony, now in its 16th year, was hosted by BBC presenter Louise Minchin at Doncaster Racecourse, where Wirquin recently installed over 100 co-branded toilet seats, and attended by over 800 guests. Louise came over to the Wirquin table to personally congratulate the staff who were thrilled with their multiple wins.
