Renishaw crowned ‘Winner of Winners’ At the 30th annual PWC West of England Business Awards — held at Bristol’s Harbour Hotel in June — global engineering company Renishaw ( was crowned ‘Winner of Winners’, after being named overall Business of the Year for companies with a turnover of more than £30 million.

In addition, Renishaw’s co-founder, executive chairman and former CEO Sir David McMurtry was named as the region’s
top CEO.

To celebrate 30 years of the awards, businesses that had previously won were invited to re-enter. Renishaw won Business of the Year in 1996 and has experienced great growth and success since; 10 companies were shortlisted in the category and judged on all aspects of business, including innovation, human resources, community, training, contribution to the region and finance.

In 1988, Renishaw had just five overseas subsidiaries; today, the company operates out of 35 countries and 95% of its sales are derived from exports.

In the last 30 years, it has developed ‘ground breaking’ metrology products, including the REVO five-axis measurement system, the Equator gauge and the Resolute optical encoder system; it is also applying its expertise to the health-care sector.

Chris Pockett, head of communications at Renishaw, said: “Renishaw has gone from strength to strength as a result of
investing for the long term in people and innovation.

“The company puts about 15% of its turnover back into research and development, fosters a culture of innovation and
is passionate about treating employees well.

"The top CEO Award for Sir David is extremely gratifying, and fantastic recognition of his achievements over the last
30 years.”
