3Squared named as joint winners of the Railway Industry Association’s (RIA) SME Growth Award alongside fellow nominee Motion Rail.
The award, sponsored by Classone Systems Limited, was one of eight awards presented during the Rail Industry Supplier Excellence (RISE) Awards which was held virtually for the first time on Wednesday evening (4 November 2020).
The RISE Awards are open to all RIA Members and aim to celebrate their contribution to the UK rail supply sector across a number of areas including: innovation; exports; environment and sustainability; safety and wellbeing; and equality, diversity and inclusion.
In their entry 3Squared, a digital solutions specialist based at Fountain Precinct in Sheffield, illustrated their key achievements from the past year and the significant growth they have experienced.
James Fox, Co-Founder and Commercial Director at 3Squared commented: “We are delighted to be co-winners of the RIA SME Growth Award 2020. This year has seen significant changes for the team and our customers, to be able to show that we are not only existing but thriving at such a time is a testament to our dedicated team and we are extremely proud of what we have achieved.
“Being included in the shortlist for this award alongside such worthy SME’s as Motion Rail, One Big Circle and SEMP was a fantastic achievement but to win, with Motion Rail, we are blown away.”
Meanwhile, also honoured was Network Rail chief executive Andrew Haines.
The special award was given to Andrew by the RIA Board in recognition of his outstanding leadership of the industry – particularly in the challenging circumstances posed by the COVID-19 pandemic – and to thank him for his close collaboration and engagement with the rail supply industry this year.
Sir Peter Hendy CBE, Network Rail’s chair, said: “Under Andrew’s leadership, Network Rail has worked closely with our industry partners to respond robustly to the challenges faced during coronavirus. We have amended timetables to ensure vital services continue to run reliably for critical workers and freight goods, introduced new working methods to make sure our employees and contractors can work safely on the railway, and supported the supply chain by moving to immediate payment terms from March.
“I would like to join the RIA Board in thanking Andrew for his contribution during these unprecedented times, and I know that under his leadership we will continue to respond and adapt effectively in the months ahead. In the longer term, we’ll be working to build railway that is fit for a new era – for example by reflecting new working and travelling habits – and make sure we provide passengers with not only a reliable service, but also a sustainable railway that is the greenest and cleanest way to travel.”
