Rainbow Productions has won three awards at the Merton Best Business Awards 2022, an event organised by the Merton Chamber of Commerce to recognise business excellence among the 700 members of the largest area base Chamber of Commerce in London.
The event attracted entries from a wide range of businesses – including construction, wellbeing, art, teaching, food retail, surveying, fitness and much, much more.
Rainbow was nominated for two awards: Best Creative Business and Best Independent Business. On September 28 at the prestigious All England Lawn Tennis Club Rainbow Productions was declared the winner of both categories.
As the evening drew to a close there was one more award, the 2022 Merton Best Business Award. This was particularly special this year as it recognised those businesses in the London Borough of Merton that have not only survived the slowdown caused by the pandemic but have shown resilience, excellence, innovation and best practice while demonstrating the highest-quality service. This too was won by Rainbow, which is now, officially and proudly, the 2022 Merton Best Business.
During the pandemic Rainbow took the opportunity to reorganize its strategies and invest in new technology, coming back with a bang in 2021, when it produced over 750 costumes shipping to over 16 countries – or, as the Chamber of Commerce itself put it: “Rainbow Productions is putting Merton on the map!”
Simon Foulkes, managing director, Rainbow Productions, said: “What a night! And, after a truly challenging period, what a year! I am proud on behalf of everyone connected in any way with Rainbow that we have won these three awards – and particularly the 2022 Merton Best Business Award. This is a team award and a tribute richly deserved by an extraordinary and talented group of people who kept on going through the hardest of times to make us even more of a force in the costumer character business. My sincerest thanks – and congratulations – to you all!”
