The MIBBA's, now in its fourth year, is one of the showpiece events in the Bury business calendar; championing local businesses and celebrating their outstanding achievements.

The judging panel chose Lex as their winner due to their ability to demonstrate consistently high service standards, exceptional standards of customer care and because they have identified new income streams as well as investing in workforce development.

The gala dinner was attended by over 350 people, and was sponsored by Bury Council and TowerFM, councillor and Leader of Bury Council, Rishi Shori commented: "I am delighted to celebrate the achievements of Bury businesses.  I want to thank all the companies that entered the Made in Bury awards and wish each and every one of you all the best for a fantastic future." 

It has been an exciting couple of months for the ambitious tech firm, with director Sam Elphick achieving highly commended for 2016 Young IT Professional, held at The Lowry Hotel in Manchester. 

The firm has also recently undergone a complete brand review, and has unveiled its new logo to recognise that the company now offers a much more diverse range of products and services.  

Lex’s new brand identity reflects their broadened product and service portfolio, which expands the supply and maintenance of document output products, such as photocopiers to include the provision of office stationery, furniture and IT hardware.

The company, which celebrates its 36th trading anniversary this year, continues to use the original red colouring which they have been recognised for since their inception.

Company vehicles have been liveried with the new look, and a new website is due to launch towards the end of the year; showcasing Lex’s complete product offering.   

Commenting on Lex’s award win, managing director, Wayne Elphick said;
