Double Success for SOMI with JLR Innovation Award and Women In Innovation Award 2016
This month has seen SOMI Trailers in the spotlight not once, but twice, winning awards for innovation at two highly prestigious events.
Firstly, Managing Director of SOMI, Pauline Dawes, was honoured at an awards ceremony at London's Royal Society of Arts as one of the UK's fifteen most innovative women. Innovate UK had launched a nationwide competition back in May 2016, with the aim of challenging the low numbers of women entrepreneurs in the UK. Pauline was recognised for her development of SOMI Trailers in the transport logistics sector.
Then in the same week, SOMI Trailers were again in the spotlight, this time at the NAA Awards 2016 winning the JLR Innovation Award.
