Stephen Cotton, Colorlord Ltd quote:  “It’s fantastic to get recognised out of the blue for the work we are doing here at Colorlord.  To be listed in the top 1000 companies in Britain with turnovers between £6M and £250M is extremely rewarding.  2017 has blessed both Brian Clegg and Ronald Britton with awards for innovative product developments and product firsts.  Brian Clegg with multiple award winning ‘Little Brian Paint Sticks’ and more recently Ronald Britton’s award at In-Cosmetics Global for Bio-glitter®, a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to plastic glitter.  Now to be recognised by London Stock Exchange Group is ‘the icing on the cake’ and a real motivator for all at Colorlord to continue the good work.“
