Artisan leather firm wins Judges Choice Award in regeneration accolade 2014

The Leather Satchel Co has received the prestigious Judges Choice Award in Knowsley Business and Regeneration Awards 2014. The accolade came in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the borough. The company crafts bespoke leather satchels from its factory in Huyton and sells to over 60 countries worldwide. Keith Hanshaw from Leather Satchel Co. commented: “I am absolutely delighted that we have won this award. “Earlier this year we established the ‘Leather Satchel Co’ name at the International Festival for Business and we aim to raise the profile of Knowsley as a place where manufacturing and great customer service thrives. “It’s an absolute pleasure to win and get such fantastic recognition for our team that have, and continue, to work so hard.”

Over 600 guests from Knowsley and beyond were gathered to celebrate business success at the event which is now in its 12th year. The awards recognise the creativity, enterprise and hard work of the individuals and organisations that are contributing to Knowsley’s economic prosperity.

Showcasing achievements from the past 12 months of both small businesses and entrepreneurs right up to the global successes of some of Knowsley’s bigger businesses, the event is a winner for many. From regeneration initiatives, to housing developments and customer experience – the awards tell success stories of all sizes and in all sectors. Cllr Dave Lonergan, Knowsley Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration Economy and Skills who helped to present the awards said: “Business is booming in Knowsley and that is due to the hard work and dedication of many individuals and organisations. The awards provide a great opportunity for Knowsley’s business community to come together to recognise and celebrate this.”

The event continues to be supported by the private sector through sponsorship and donations to the prize draw on the evening, which raised funds for the Mayor of Knowsley’s chosen charities.
