A SECURITY business set up by a former police officer is the latest winner of a monthly business award.
Clear Image MMS Ltd, founded in 1997 by former West Yorkshire detective sergeant, was named Business of the Month in the competition run by Huddersfield law firm Eaton Smith in conjunction with the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce and Business Link.
Founder Neil Smith and colleagues Michelle Atkinson and Paul Morley received the framed certificate from Eaton Smith partner Steven Pollitt at a ceremony at the law firm’s High Street offices.
Clear Image has evolved to offer a complete range of electronic security services. The company provides monitoring, maintenance and security solutions to a wide range of businesses and organisations – from stately homes to shopping centres.
Despite expansion overseas, the company has maintained a permanent presence in Kirklees and counts many Yorkshire organisations among its clients – including Huddersfield University, Kirklees Council and the Nostell Estate.
Its commitment extends to its role as employer – generating a variety of job opportunities in the Kirklees area, and contributing to improving the skills of its own employees through the Clear Image Academy.
The company has a strong commitment to the local community in which it operates, using local services and suppliers where possible and backing the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice in Huddersfield and U Can Shine, a motivational coaching programme for children in Holmfirth.
Mr Smith, group managing director, said: “We’re delighted to have been recognised with this award.Š
“Our team works very hard to drive innovation and deliver good customer service, and this helps to acknowledge their efforts.
“As a growing company we’re very proud to be flying the flag for Yorkshire, right across the UK.”
The Business of the Month Award is open to firms in Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield.
