Are Cotswold Businesses stock exchange darlings?


Oxford Instruments and Renishaw have been shortlisted for the prestigious techMARK Company of the Year award, which acknowledges the achievements of technology companies listed on the London Stock Exchange.

Renishaw, the global engineering technologies company based at Wootton under Edge and Oxford Instruments plc of Abingdon, leading provider of high technology tools and systems for research and industry, will go head to head with two other companies at the awards on Thursday 15 November 2012.

Ben Taylor, Assistant Chief Executive of Renishaw said: To have been shortlisted as one of the best run technology companies in the UK, is great recognition for the efforts of staff across the entire breadth of the business, from R&D through to production and sales.

The techMARK Company of the Year award recognises leading businesses from the techMARK index of the London Stock Exchange, which includes IT, engineering, pharmaceutical and telecoms companies. Nominated businesses are noted for their technological achievements which have been harnessed to produce sound commercial and financial success. Judges will be looking for a winning company that is well managed, has already gained recognition by analysts and investors, and will also have outstanding long term growth potential, with a sound strategy in place to ensure successful delivery of its commercial advantages and to build shareholder value.

Previous winners of the techMARK Company of the Year award include pharmaceutical business Shire plc, and ARM Holdings plc, the multinational semiconductor and software design company.
