We are pleased to announce that we have been named the SME of the Year in the Thames Valley Business & Community Awards 2018!

The ceremony, organised by The Great British Expos' Ltd, saw over 250 business professionals attend the McDonald Berystede Hotel in Ascot last night, to celebrate and acknowledge some of the greatest achievements in the Thames Valley area over the past year.

Awarding for a whole array of different aspects; including SME of the Year, Business of the Year and Young Entrepreneur of the year; the evening also began with a live musical performance and a brief introduction from 2017 Dragons Den’s Julianne Ponan.


Active was awarded the illustrious title of ‘SME of the Year’ at the event; commemorating their dedication to efficient and successful relocation and workplace interior design services, both across the country and particularly in the local area.


Based in Reading, the company employs over 30 people and grew by over 20 per cent in 2017. Thanks to a large and evolving portfolio of workplace services, the company now has a client base of over 200 blue chip organisations. Working with clients such as Porsche, Aeris, Kyocera, Fiat and Virgin Media, all in within the Thames Valley, the company has firmly established itself as a leading example of workplace excellence in the community.


Active prides itself in being passionate about the environment, investing in new talent and practicing what they preach. They’ve recently embarked on a project to design and refurbish their own workplace, to provide a more agile and effective space for the team.


“I couldn’t be happier or prouder of our team”, states Colin Tarsey, founder of Active. “A company is only as good as the people it employs after all, and I’m truly lucky to work with such a talented bunch. It’s great that we’ve been able to maintain such a positive culture, despite unprecedented levels of growth. I’d like to thank everyone at the company for their dedication to our work and client satisfaction, and the Thames Valley Business and Community Awards for acknowledging all of this.”
