Contern, Luxembourg, 17 July 2013 - The European Business Awards has announced today that Epuramat is to represent Luxembourg as a National Champion in the prestigious 2013/14 Awards programme. Epuramat beat off stiff competition to be selected as one of the five National Champions.

The European Business Awards has identified some of Europe’s brightest businesses based on their ability to demonstrate the three core principles at the heart of the Awards programme. The esteemed panel of judges was looking for organisations to represent Luxembourg who exhibited the highest levels of innovation, business excellence and sustainability.

Dr. Silvano Sommer, CEO of Epuramat said: “We are delighted to be selected to represent Luxembourg for the UKTI Award for Innovation category in the 2013/14 European Business Awards. It is an honour to be recognised as one of the leading organisations in our country and in our field. The European Business Awards is widely recognised as the showcase for Europe’s most dynamic companies, and it is for us the recognition of our determination to provide high-quality and innovative technologies on the wastewater treatment market.”

The European Business Awards is dedicated to raising the visibility and progress of companies who excel in delivering innovation twinned with successful commercial results whilst acting responsibly and positively affecting the social environment they operate in. Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards says, “Over the past seven years we’ve received an incredibly high standard of entries from organisations that are passionate about their business. However, very few get the chance to fly the flag for their country and compete across Europe to be recognised as one of Europe’s finest. It is really an exceptional accolade to be picked as a National Champion.”
