SUMO Services scooped its second major award of 2006 when it picked up the Highways Magazine Excellence Awards 'Innovative Maintenance Product of the Year'.

SUMO, one of the largest suppliers of underground utility detection services to the construction industry in the UK, also won the British Franchise Association 'Franchisor of the Year' Award in the summer.

During 2006 Sumo has seen continuing significant expansion with 13 franchisees coming on board. The publicity emanating from these awards will aid the company's growth further during 2007.

The Highways Magazine Excellence Awards are all about products and services that make your business work better and demonstrate excellence and innovation. Colin Carnachan, SUMO's Franchise Director, says:

'The 'Innovative Maintenance Product of the Year' award is awarded to a company whose vision, belief and determination has brought a product or service to the market that has initiated a 'change of thought' - we definitely believe we have achieved that here at SUMO.'
