A RECRUITMENT company in Huddersfield has won a monthly business award.
Stafflex Ltd, based at Chapel Hill, was judged winner of the Eaton Smith Business of the Month Award for its record of growth since being formed by managing director Brian Stahelin 12 years ago and for its contributions to the local community.
The company started from a small office in Aspley, offering temporary labour to local industrial companies.
During 2002, Paul Balderstone joined Stafflex and his experience in education resulted in the business setting up an education division to provide teachers and support staff to local schools.
Hard work and attention to providing excellent customer service helped Stafflex prosper and expand into engineering and – more recently – commercial recruitment.
The business has grown steadily from two to 12 employees, including one apprentice, with turnover increasing steadily year-on-year.
The business has demonstrated its growth plans with its move from Aspley to new and larger premises at Chapel Hill.
The judging panel felt that Stafflex should be commended for the way that they have grown the business over the years – particularly through these challenging times – and also for the contribution that the firm makes to the local community, including being a sponsor of Huddersfield Town, an active members of several Huddersfield marketing groups and supporting local schools and charities.
Mr Balderstone, a director of the company, said: “We are all delighted to receive this award and feel it reinforces our resolve to do business the ‘Stafflex Way’.”
The awards are run by Eaton Smith in association with Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce and UKTI. They are open to firms in Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield.
