Rowan Egan, NAA chief executive, commented, ‘As my first Awards event as NAA chief executive it was impressive to see the diverse range of companies in the Northern region that are offering world-class products and services – with our 2018 Company of the Year, Force Technology, being a perfect example. It’s also good to see that low emissions and sustainability are taking a greater priority in our Northern industry.’
