Award winning business: 2015

Hurrah, we are an award winning business! We have been presented with the prestigious Growth Award at this year’s Kent Independent Traders Awards (KITA) – now renamed to Independent Business Awards Kent. Noted in Style was one of eight finalists to be shortlisted for the Business Growth category. We were also named as a finalist in the Customer Service Category. The results were announced at an awards ceremony on 10 September at the Great Danes Hotel near Maidstone.


As part of the company’s continued plans for growth, we are currently on the hunt for an Apprentice Production Assistant to work in the manufacturing side of the business. This is the second apprentice Noted in Style has taken on and this latest role will see the candidate working closely alongside the production manager to learn skills such as debossing, foil printing, and product customisation, all underpinned by a college education course.

Commenting on the award, Laura Turner, Director at Noted in Style, says: “We have always been motivated by the opportunity to offer highly creative and customised solutions to companies, and that remains one of our primary aims. We’re proud of the achievements we have made to date, and our aim is to continue growing this company, offering sustainable and sound employment for those in and around Folkestone.

We’re so thrilled to have been recognised with this award, timely given the imminent appointment of a new  apprentice. Our growth and success is down to the team we have in place, giving everyone a stake in our success, so this award is as much for them as it is for the company.”

Hilary Steel, KITA coordinator, said: “KITA received a record amount of applications this year, with the Growth Award being one of the toughest and most popular categories. Our judges are made up of some of Kent’s most well respected professionals, all of them experts in their fields so to have picked up this award is no mean feat. Noted in Style has proved to be enormously successful in their field and we hope to see it continue to grow and prosper.” KITA is an independently run organisation, currently in its fourth year.
