Local Company gains Four Nominations in Computer Trade ‘Oscars’
Products of North Staffordshire based computer manufacturers, Optronix Limited, have been nominated in four categories of Computer Trade Shopper’s 2005 Excellence Awards, the computer trade’s equivalent of the Oscars, run in association with Microsoft, Microscope, Intel and VIP Computers.
Competing with industry giants Sony, Iiyama, Samsung and Gigagabyte among many others, the number of product category nominations exceeds that of any other manufacturer worldwide.
“For any product to receive a nomination is difficult enough”, commented Optronix Technical Director, Philip Kingsland, “To receive four is, in my 40 years in the industry, unheard of!”
The four categories of nomination are Best Monitor Manufacturer, Best Mobile Computing Manufacturer, Best Motherboard Manufacturer and Best Case/Power Supply Unit Manufacturer. “Nominations come from the people who count”, said Optronix Marketing Manager, Cindy Hallatt, speaking from the company’s new Congleton Sales Office, “ and that means our customers, which is what really matters to us”. In fact, 14,000 trade customers are invited to submit nominations by Computer Trade Shopper, the UK’s leading Computer Trade magazine.
Optronix is a Mitek group company with its head office in Newcastle-under-Lyme. Mitek’s computer component distribution arm itself has set local records, reaching the Fasttrack 100 for 3 years running.
“When we established the Optronix brand of products 3 years ago”, observed Managing Director Malcolm Roach, “Our objective was to provide a UK based manufacturing company offering quality computer products. We believed the key was to base ourselves in the UK, where we were easily contactable and could provide a UK based customer support service to trade customers and members of the public alike. Too often people get fobbed off with overseas support centres and communication difficulties. To find Optronix nominated in no less than 4 categories of product after so short a period in the marketplace is an amazing achievement, and we shall continue to work hard to ensure that our customers get the very best from all our products and support service”
