A SUNDERLAND entrepreneur has been recognised for his success at a prestigious annual awards.
David Lynch, of Lynch Healthcare, walked away with the Emerging Talent honour at the Entrepreneurs’ Forum awards.
David was up against Martyn Young, of Sunderland-based First2Print.
Lynch Healthcare is a leading specialist manufacturer, supplier and installer of disability products for moving and handling patients for customers, including the NHS, nursing homes, local authorities, special schools and private clinicians.
It launched its manufacturing division this year and has created its own brand of patient slings, made at its factory in Sunderland, which is expected to have great export potential to Europe and the Far East.
David said: “There have been many times when I’ve thought ‘Am I doing the right thing? Should I change the strategy? Should I change the vision?’
“But we’ve stuck with it and now we have a fantastic team which has made all the difference.”
