Husband and wife make prestigious shortlist

Trafford-based smart repairer Revive! has been shortlisted for Small Business of the Year in Greater Manchester.

Husband and wife Dan and Natalie Normanton and their team have been nominated in the Small Business of the Year category, which recognises businesses with between five and 10 employees.

Revive! Trafford enjoyed a record financial year in 2021, achieving a 44% surge in turnover from 2020 figures, and even a 31% increase from pre-pandemic revenue in 2019.

Dan Normanton said: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for such a coveted award alongside other forward-thinking businesses in the Manchester area. Our nomination is testament to the hard work our team have put in over the past year to deliver the very best for our customers.”

Dan and Natalie launched Revive! Trafford in 2007, with Dan being the only technician during the early stages of the business. Since then, the couple has seen the business go from strength to strength and they now employ six technicians.

Natalie said: “By the end of 2023, we hope to add four new technicians to our team, which will grow our fleet to 11 vans. As we expand, perhaps we’ll soon be shortlisted not for small business of the year, but for even larger honours.”
