Malvern-based The Smart Actuator Company has been named as Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce’s Member of the Month for August.

The small family-run business manufactures a ground breaking actuator that has been invented, developed and designed by RIFT Technology Limited in Worcestershire.

The Smart Actuator was delighted to be awarded winner of the Judges Choice as Midlands’ Family Business of 2017, going on to achieve the highest accolade of the National Family Business Awards in Wembley, winning the RBC National Family Business of the Year.

Speaking of the award, Tony O’Donnell, Chief Executive Office at The Smart Actuator Company, said: “To have won came as a surprise, but we could never have imagined we would then end the night by winning the National Award. It is a validation of the hard work, determination and love we have for our business, our team and our family.”

Winning the award only continues the successful year for The Smart Actuator Company, after being recognised with the Highly Commended Award at the Chamber’s Business Awards 2017 earlier this year.
