Metal moulding specialist CMG Technologies has been announced as the winner of the Innovation in Business award, sponsored by University of Suffolk, at the Suffolk Business Awards 2020.

Previously described as one of Suffolk’s hidden gems, CMG Technologies demonstrates significant innovation in both technology and in the way that the business values its employees.
