Klarius shines at the Staffordshire Business Awards 2020

We were delighted to sponsor the Medium/Large Business Awards as part of the Staffordshire Business Awards again this year. The finalists in the category had produced superb nominations and each had excellent examples of delivering profitability in very challenging trading conditions and showing true entrepreneurial spirit.

Daran Harding, one of the judges from Dains commented: "The judging was particularly difficult, but we were delighted to award Klarius with the number one spot with the 848 Group and Acacia training both highly commended runners up."

The event itself was virtual, but to the credit of Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce, this was delivered online and was seamlessly professional.

A theme which shone through all categories was the quality and commitment of businesses in Staffordshire and Dains are proud to be associated with this.
