Spice Application Systems made it two-in-a-row when the company was highly commended in a hotly-contested category to find the region’s top international players.

The Thames Valley Export Award, sponsored by UK Trade & Investment, was part of the prestigious Thames Valley Business Awards evening which took place on November 19, at Reading’s Royal Berkshire Conference Centre.

It is the second year running that SAS has made the top shortlist of six companies and managing director Peter King collected a commemorative certificate from guest of honour and former Chancellor of the Exchequer Lord Lamont.

Also in 2008, SAS was rewarded for its hard work in research and development when it was named as one of three finalists in The Grant Thornton Innovation Award, part of the Oxfordshire Business Awards 2008.
