ACI Group wins SME Business of the Year at Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce Awards

August 2023

ACI Group Ltd (‘ACI Group’) has scooped a major award at this year’s Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce Awards. The leading UK distributor was named as the SME Business of the Year at the awards ceremony, which took place at the Hilton Hotel in Reading.

The company, which works with some of the largest global food, pharma, industrial and road brands, also received a runner-up accolade for the Best Use of Technology category for its ambitious drive to champion the supply chain, with access to its Oomph customer relationship management platform.

Delighted with the result, Karsten Smet, CEO of ACI Group, commented: “We are absolutely over the moon to be taking home the trophy from this year’s awards. Last year, we were pipped to the post in the Excellence in Customer Service category, so it’s a real honour to be among the 11 incredible businesses as a winner this time around.

“Our team has worked exceptionally hard to keep our customers at the centre of everything we do over the last few years. From the onset of the pandemic to the cost of living crisis, we want nothing more than to go beyond our customers’ expectations and deliver excellent service, sustainability and technical innovation within the supply chain. A big thanks to the Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce for its recognition of our team as the SME Business of the Year.”

As the fifth largest accredited chamber in the UK, the annual business awards recognise the talents, innovation and entrepreneurship of companies across the region. To view the list of winners in full, please visit
