News: Bromley wins innovation award


Kristan Bromley of Bromley Technologies in Rotherham, has won the Innovation Award at the Yorkshire 42 under 42 Awards.

Insider Media hosts the business awards to help reward and recognise upcoming entrepreneurs. As well as winning the Innovation Award sponsored by Yorkshire Forward at the black tie dinner at the Royal Armouries, Leeds, Kristan was also shortlisted in the Yorkshire International Business category.

Set up by brothers Kristan and Richard and run with chief operating officer Mike Maddock, Bromley Technologies is based at the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP).

The company specialises in athlete-focused engineering technology, with its state-of-the-art test facility that helps finesse sporting talent.

Their philosophy is to centre athletes, sports practitioners and enthusiasts at the heart of the innovation process and surround them with an extremely high calibre team of engineers, technologists and scientists with proven track records in the Olympic, Formula One Motorsport and aerospace environments.

Kristan said: "It was a total surprise to win this award, and a great honour, particularly given the level of competition. The companies' success has really been a team effort and my fellow directors Dan, Mike and Richard share in the plaudits of the award.

"It has taken a number of years for us to establish the company as a leading player within the winter sports field, and to earn the reputation for leading edge technology and innovation, but it has been worth it.

"To be recognised for our innovation was particularly satisfying. Whether as athletes or business people you are continually looking for an edge over the competition, and technology and innovation offers a lucrative source to create that edge."

The company has three world, European and Olympic winners as its public faces - Kristan Bromley, the skeleton's first ever World and European champion, 2006 Olympic silver medallist and current world number two in the skeleton, Shelley Rudman, and Nicola Minichiello, part of the first British women's pair to win the World championship in 2009.

All three represented Great Britain at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.
