Bloc Digital is the Chamber’s Derbyshire Business of the Year

A specialist in the creation and re-use of digital information has won the East Midlands Chamber* Derbyshire Business of the Year Award 2019.

 

Established in 2000, Derby-based Bloc Digital is split into four complementary disciplines of modelling, animation, development and web.

 

As a leader in the use of digital technology in industry, it produces innovative, immersive, digital solutions - Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), web and mobile - for many companies globally, while constantly evaluating new hardware and software, enabling it to pioneer future solutions development techniques.

 

Receiving the award from Mazars, the headline sponsor of the Chamber’s Business Awards 2019, Bloc Digital Director Keith Cox said: “We entered the East Midlands Chamber Business Awards to gain recognition for what our team is doing.

 

“We are so busy day to day that it is amazing to stop and see that people appreciate and acknowledge what we do. We are absolutely delighted to win this award.”

 

The company was one of 13 to win an award on the night, as the Chamber celebrated the strength and successes of businesses across Derby and Derbyshire.

 

To qualify as a contender for the supreme accolade of Business of the Year, Bloc Digital had already won the Business Improvement through Technology award earlier in the evening.

 

Chamber President Kevin Harris said: “One of the main privileges of being Chamber President is being able to address and celebrate the crème de la crème of our region’s businesses at the Business Awards.

 

“Taking part in the Chamber’s Business Awards, the only local awards to offer winners the chance to go on to compete on a regional and national stage at the British Chambers of Commerce Awards, encourages an organisation to look closely at what they do best.

 

“Making it through to the final is cause for celebration in itself and whether you get that far or walk off with the ultimate crown, you should shout about that success and proclaim to the world that yours is one of the best businesses out there.”
