Over the years, it’s fair to say, Reach and Rescue have had their share of recognition in the field of water safety and rescue equipment. Pioneers in both innovation and ingenuity when it comes to rescue pole system technology, a technology still in its infancy and yet to be adopted as the status quo with regards to public water safety awareness. So it isn’t surprising when the team at Reach and Rescue receive a plethora of nominations for various awards and certifications. Three nominations in particular stood out to be notably prestigious;

VentureFest North West 2018


With over 650 attendees last year and and trending as the fourth best awards ceremony in the country, VentureFest is an innovation competition open to any business. This year 850 businesses are set to attend the prestigious event in Manchester and nearly 200 businesses have entered. Reach and Rescue are in the final.

Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, said: “As the home of disruptive thinking, Greater Manchester is the ideal setting for Venturefest North West. The appetite this city-region has for innovation is huge and I’m looking forward greatly to seeing so many businesses, entrepreneurs and investors coming together under one roof, connecting and sharing ideas at an event that epitomises what we’re all about.”

The NHS in the North West Excellence in Supply Awards 2018

It goes without saying that any NHS excellence award would take pride of place in the directors office of any business, but to receive a non-clinical innovation award nomination from the NHS is almost second to none. Years of hard work, supplying various NHS related teams across the country and innovating new and life saving technologies has paid off and now the NHS has nominated Reach and Rescue for an award in Manchester in October.

The event promotes and celebrates private sector organisations working in partnership with the NHS to deliver high quality, effective and efficient patient care; helping the health service to do more for less.”

British Small Business Awards 2018 

The British Small Business awards was established to recognise the number of small businesses throughout each year that find success amidst a tough and tiresome small business landscape. Over 30,000 small businesses close within the first 12 months each year and yet 51% of the private sector revenue was made up of small businesses in 2017. So it really is important to acknowledge our successful small businesses and one of those nominated this year was Reach and Rescue. The ceremony at London’s Royal Lancaster will be held in October and Reach and Rescue have been nominated for the ‘Exporter of the year’ award.

The Exporter of the Year will be an business of less than 50 total staff that has demonstrated an ability to succeed in international markets, with judges considering export sales growth/consistency and a notable aptitude for adapting a product or service to new markets.”
