International Recognition for SCX

23rd November 2018

SCX has been shortlisted in three categories at the prestigious 2018 Business Brilliance Awards. They will be facing some tough international competition for the ‘Brand Brilliance (Large)’, ‘Innovative Team of the Year’ and ‘UK Business of the Year’ awards.



The SCX group, which was founded in 1972 in Sheffield, still has its headquarters in the city at Wincobank.

SCX has grown considerably since those early days, and now consists of three separate, yet complementary businesses: Street CraneXpress; SCX Special Projects; and Burnand XH.

Between them, they span the complete spectrum of engineering, from the smallest component parts, to servicing, and all the way to multi-million-pound complete mechanical handling solutions.

Each business is successful in its own right, as evidenced recently when Street CraneXpress received a special commendation at the inaugural international LEEA Awards on 14th November 2018.

The commendation was awarded for their exemplary standards of personnel development at all levels within the business, whether that is giving local apprentices the chance to become a fully qualified engineer through the collaboration between SCX Academy and the AMRC or developing the skills of the office staff with course days and qualifications.



However, these most recent shortlists for the BOC Business Brilliance Awards highlight that the three businesses are at their strongest when combined as a group.

It is due to their collaboration and hard work that the group continues to consistently increase turnover and staff numbers, and deliver on innovative projects, such as the iconic retractable roofs for the All England Lawn Tennis Club at Wimbledon, or the internationally-reported, world-first, dividing retractable pitch for Tottenham Hotspur's new London stadium.

SCX will be at the Business Brilliance Awards ceremony in London on Friday 7 December along with all the other shortlisted businesses. Whether we win our categories or not, we are very proud to have been shortlisted along with prestigious international companies, such as Lloyds Bank International and XERO.
