Local Business Wins National Award

Michael has hailed local business Winch Energy a ‘great local exporter’ following its success at prestigious award event.

Winch Energy, a global, off-grid renewable energy developer based in Sevenoaks, has been awarded ‘Export Champion’ by Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council.  It is among 29 other outstanding British businesses that have been selected for distinguished programmes.

The locally-based company, founded by CEO Nicholas Wrigley, provides electricity, electric water pumping and satellite connectivity to off-grid populations in Africa. It was founded in 2016.

Michael congratulates Mr Wrigley and Winch Energy employees on their impressive award.  He said: ‘This is yet another example of business booming in Sevenoaks.  Our local trades punch above their weight not only here in the UK, but also across the world.  I am committed to ensuring that this business and great local exporters like it can seize upon the opportunities presented by Brexit and expand their global successes.’
