“In this strangest of years we are more grateful then ever to all our category sponsors and the headline sponsors Suffolk Chamber of Commerce and Sizewell C. Without their support we would not have been able to honour so many incredible achievements.”

John Dugmore, chief executive at Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, one of two headline sponsors, said: “Suffolk Chamber backs the Suffolk Business Awards as a great showcase for the best of the best among the Suffolk business community. We are especially pleased to co-sponsor the Business of the Year category as that represents the very pinnacle of commercial approach, planning and success.”

Paul Morton, regional development officer at Sizewell C, the other headline sponsor, added: “Sizewell C agrees it is important to celebrate the business successes in Suffolk and we want to create more opportunities for local businesses through the new power station. Building a new power station in Suffolk will bring significant benefit to the East of England – jobs, education and skills development, as well as opportunities for local businesses. Our sister project in Somerset, Hinkley Point C, is already delivering, with £2.2bn spent with South West companies to date and over 600 apprentices in training. We want to deliver the same benefits for the East of England.”
