Cybertill was last year’s winner of this award – why not take a moment to read what their Founder Ian Tomlinson had to say about what winning meant to the team.

“We are a proud member of Knowsley’s dynamic and diverse business community which is contributing to the growth and success of the area.

Whenever possible, we invite customers, suppliers, and other professionals to our Head Office in Knowsley to showcase where we are and what we do, we’re proud of our location, team and products and we are delighted that our hard work is being recognised with these awards.”
