i + g cohen ltd were proud winners of one of the UK’s most prestigious business awards which places the company in an elite group of the most successful companies in the UK - The Queen’s Award: Enterprise in the International Trade category.  Elliot Cohen, Managing Director said how thrilled he was that a business started nearly 50 years ago by his grandfather and father has achieved such public recognition. “This success has been built on the loyalty of our customers and suppliers and commitment of our staff.”

Celebrating their 100th anniversary, the Textile Institute gave their first ever “Green” Award to i + g cohen Limited in 2010. The “Sustainability Award” was handed over at a ceremony attended by company directors Elliot Cohen and Phil Geller in recognition of the effect we’ve had on sustainability policy and practice.

The Salford Business Awards are the highlight of Salford Business Week, a series of business events hosted by the University of Salford, The Chapel Street Business Group and Salford City Council. Judges award the International Trade Award to businesses who can clearly demonstrate their commitment to the growth of trade abroad showing how they deal with cultural and language constraints. Barbara Spicer, Chief Executive of Salford City Council said that “Winning this category is an exceptional achievement and I hope that the award provides the recognition that your excellent company richly deserves.

In 2008, we were honoured to be named winners of the Family Business of the Year Award by Entrepreneur Magazine.  Business Development Consultant Annie Greer accepted the award wearing a recycled dress collected from our very own textile banks. This award acknowledges our strong family values which are at the heart of our company and form the foundation on which our success is built.
