We’re thrilled to share with everyone that UK Connect has won top prize in the Business of the Year – Scale Up category – at the Soldiering On Awards 2019.
PJ Farr, managing director of UK Connect, was presented with the award by Helen Helliwell, Director of the Armed Forces People Policy, Ministry of Defence, at an award ceremony on Friday 5th April. The event was held at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel and hosted by TV personality Carol Vorderman and former Royal Marine Commando, LCpl John-James ‘JJ’ Chalmers.
PJ dreamed up the concept for UK Connect when, as a soldier, he was often posted to remote locations and started thinking about how businesses survive in areas where broadband is not available. This inspired the idea for the company which PJ launched shortly after leaving the army with an investment of just £1,000.
In just five years, UK Connect has undergone exceptional growth to become one of the leading suppliers of communication solutions to the UK’s construction industry. UK Connect works with many of the industry’s leading housebuilders and provides more than 1,000 construction sites across the UK with its flagship super-fast broadband service, Site Connect.
