Lifetime Achievement Award


We reveal the worthy winner of our Lifetime Achievement Award, sponsored by BPE Solicitors

On the evening of Thursday September 20, we celebrated the region’s best innovative engineering and manufacturing companies at the fourth annual Cotswold Life Engineering Manufacturing Innovation Awards, held at Cheltenham Racecourse.

The glittering black tie ceremony celebrated the incredible achievements made by companies who really do put the Cotswolds on the map, drive the region’s economy and keep the area at the top of the tree when it comes to entrepreneurship and business success.

We are pleased to announce the winner of our Lifetime Achievement Award, sponsored by BPE Solicitors...

Steve Turner, Spectrum Medical

Born and educated in Gloucestershire, Steve gained early industrial experience working for two great Gloucestershire companies, R. A. Lister and Dowty.

He lives in Cheltenham with his wife Asta and their four children, three of whom are making their futures in Cheltenham.

Fast forward to today, Spectrum Medical employees a global workforce of 200 with 37% being engineering focused in three key divisions, Charlotte, NC (software and U.S. Sales), Cheltenham (Quantum Life Supporting Technologies and R.O.W. Sales) and Marandola Italy (Sterile Products).

Although a global player in healthcare, the commitment to Gloucestershire remains substantial with plans to commence the development of an additional 55,000 headquarters facility near Staverton this October.

Currently, Spectrum Medical exports 98% of what it manufactures in Cheltenham; group turnover will be in the range of £40m for this calendar year and £100m plus for next. Spectrum Medical have a strategic relationship with one of the world’s largest healthcare businesses and an orderbook of over £400m.

None of this could not be achieved with the exceptional talent and commitment of the team (or as they like to say the family) at Spectrum Medical, and Steve Turner himself.
