Winner: Reprotec Group
Beneficiary School: Durham Johnston School

Durham-based Reprotec celebrated its 30th year in business in 2018 – and what a year they have had!

Exceeding their sales targets has enabled the resin flooring and surface protection specialists to launch a repair and maintenance division; create four new positions; invest in training for its team members; take on three mature apprentices and gain the Investors in People award for the fourth consecutive year.

Committed to research and development, Reprotec has successfully introduced its own range of eco-friendly resin products that are not only low in VOCs, solvent-free and contain 46% recycles but also has a 33% greater coverage than regular resins – providing their customers with an environmentally-friendly product that saves them time and money!

An active member of NEPIC, Reprotec’s strategic approach to membership has paid dividends too. Through involvement in NEPIC’s SME Growth programmes and profile raising through event attendance, Reprotec has regained a previous customer and added two new significant customers to its client list.

Reprotec is passionate about the local community. As well as supporting several charities, the team work to ensure Langley Moor is a safe and pleasant place to live by renovating park railings, removing chewing-gum and stains from community areas and contributing a Christmas tree every year.

As an SME, Reprotec has grown and developed across its 30 years, providing ethical employment, investment in training and development while keeping abreast with the fast-growing developments in resin technology that all contribute to its reputation of professionalism and quality in serving the range of businesses within Process Sector with their bespoke needs. A truly worthy winner of the SME of the Year Award 2019!
