Swadlincote-based Extec won for developing overseas markets, while Worksop's TPA won in the innovation category for its steerable portable roadway system, the Traxpanel. St Albans firm ScrewFast also won in the innovation category for its screwed steel piles for tall structures, such as railway signals and telephone masts.
