I understand that Sandon’s new bespoke facility is expected to create up to 10 apprenticeships each year plus 30 skilled jobs over the next five years. Reinforcing the decision made by our panel of judges to select Sandon Global for the Business Of The Year title this year.”

We are currently preparing for a significant step change in our business. Regardless of the political landscape and uncertainty we have spent time researching and challenging our strategies to the point where we have the conviction and skills to build on our ongoing success. Being recognised by Halton Chamber is very humbling but also reassuring that we are on the right path. The next chapter in the history of our business is one that excites, motivates and drives our business and its people.
