Following its nomination as a Central and East England regional finalist and the Thought Exchange to Sao Paulo, Pluswipes has been declared a regional winner in the HSBC Business Thinking initiative.
Founded nine years ago, Pluswipes has built its business as a Corby, Northants-based manufacturer of wet wipes for large consumer product companies, which sell them under their own brands.
The company employs 52 people and has a turnover of £10m and it intends to use its award of funding of up to £6m and a ﬁnancial reward of up to £120,000 to develop its business much further.
“We want to take our products to a wider stage, whatever route that needs to go down,” said Marten Teasdale Brown, the company’s founder and managing director.
The award will be used to further boost our efforts towards internationalising the brand, research & development and innovative technologies.
