A growing Sheffield business which has taken on six apprentices over the last year has been visited by MP Clive Betts.

The Sheffield South East Labour MP met management and staff at Evolution Power Tools, Sothall.

Mr Betts’ visit followed the company’s success over the last year which included being named most innovative supplier at the Screwfix Supplier Awards 2012.

New products such as the Evo-System portable generator, own branded mitre saws packed with patented features and a flat-pack mitre saw system all helped Evolution win the award.

James Bamber, commercial manager for Evolution, said: “We are delighted to gain recognition from such a big player within the construction retail sector.

“Evolution have always tried to put innovation at the forefront of everything that we do and it is great that this is not going unnoticed.”

The company was also named in a Yorkshire Fast 50, recognising the region’s fastest-growing small, medium and large companies.

Mr Betts was shown around the office and had the chance to test some of the products such as the Evo-System.
