Integral Powertrain Ltd (IP) is delighted to have scooped a double victory at last night’s Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards (MKBAA), winning the prestigious Business of the Year award, as well as being recognised for hard-work and dedication to Innovation and Technology. Held to recognise the achievements of Milton Keynes businesses within a variety of sizes and sectors, the Marshall Stadium, MK was bursting with various vibrant local companies, all celebrating the amazing work happening in the city.
Announcing IP as winner of the Business of the Year award, the judges said:
“The MKBAA judges chose Integral Powertrain as Business of the Year as their business illustrated all that is great about the Milton Keynes knowledge-based economy. Times may be uncertain but the judges felt that the future was very bright with a company such as Integral Powertrain leading the development of innovation and technology in the way they self-evidently do.”
The judges felt that Integral Powertrain were worthy winners of the Technology Business of the year award. They said that the sophisticated electrical technology demonstrates how electrification of the powertrain can beat the internal combustion engine. Their technology is genuinely frontier in its application.
