Mercury Hampton Awarded Scale Up Business of the Year at the St Helens Borough Business Awards

Mercury Hampton has been awarded Scale Up Business of the Year, sponsored by Miller Developments at the St Helens Borough Business Awards, which took place on 30th September at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

In collaboration with St Helens Chamber and St Helens Borough Council – sponsored by Paramount Digital, and supported by Halton & St Helens VCA, Glass Futures, Faun Zoeller and City Fibre – the St Helens Borough Business Awards recognise and celebrate the success and accomplishments of businesses and people over the past year.

The Scale Up Business of the Year category recognises businesses that have experienced exceptional growth in sales, profit, market share, jobs or international trade.

Mercury Hampton was praised by the judges for responding proactively to the market, and prospering during a challenging period for business. Their business’ responsiveness impressed the judging panel, who expressed excitement at the future prospects of the business.

Tracy Mawson, Chief Executive at St Helens Chamber, said: “We have been overwhelmed by the volume and calibre of entries to the St Helens Borough Business Awards. It has been a pleasure to see so much talent on display during this year’s judging process, particularly after what have been tumultuous times for businesses. The judges really did have a difficult job on their hands, but I believe we have found some truly outstanding winners.

“For me the Awards demonstrates the depth and breadth of the business community here in the Borough and that diversity is our strength.”

Councillor Kate Groucutt, Cabinet Member for Economy, Business & Skills at St Helens Borough Council, added: “It’s great to be able to celebrate and recognise some of the many examples of resilience, innovation, and achievements in the local economy despite the challenges faced by many businesses in recent times.


“Seeing the calibre of finalists, their stories, their people and progress gives me the utmost certainty that we can look forward with confidence as a borough. The quality of entries this year has been second to none and we are proud to host such a prestigious event that throws a spotlight on business from all sectors.”
