This year the Black Country Chamber is using the awards to celebrate the “talent, tenacity and transformation” of local businesses, their people, and their leaders.

The science category celebrates “businesses whose products, services or operations have been transformed through innovation or the application of new technology or science which enhance productivity and enable growth”.

Stourbridge based Plum Ideas, has been recognised for its innovative work with the Energy Saving Trust to scope, brand and develop an app.

The Energy Advice app is being used by energy suppliers, local authorities and network providers to help 5 million households achieve potential savings in excess of £50m by offering energy advice hints and tips, in a simple and engaging format.

The agency is proud to work with an array of well-known brands such as NIVEA, Golden Wonder, Kenco, Weetabix, Ryvita and Tayto Group.

“We are delighted to have made the list of finalists for the Black Country Chamber of Commerce Business Awards in the excellence in science, technology and innovation category.

“Having recently marked our 25th anniversary, it is fantastic to be recognised as a business which continues to innovate, building on the proud science and technology heritage of the Black Country.

“We are passionate about building a reputation for creative skills in our region so we look forward to being part of the celebrations of the latest business success stories through the Chamber of Commerce Awards.”

The awards success comes after Plum Ideas recently hosted a visit by Dudley South MP Mike Wood, who received an overview of the business, including client work highlights and the plans for future success.

Plum Ideas also shared with Mr Wood some of the campaigns they are working on locally, including the re-creation of historic collection pieces for the Black Country Living Museum’s new 1940’s to 1960’s high street.
