A SCOTTISH manufacturer of powerful micro compressors has been recognised at the British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association Awards.

Edinburgh firm Vert Rotors scooped the Venture-Backed Management Team of the Year award at the Balmoral Hotel in the capital.

CEO Olly Dmitriev accepted the award in recognition of the excellent leadership shown in navigating technological challenges and leading a highly skilled team of Scottish mechanical engineers in delivering a high impact innovation in air compressor technology to the market.

Dmitriev said: “To be recognised for this award is a tremendous honour. Our team has worked extremely hard to develop our pioneering range of air compressors, but it would not have been possible to get where we are today without the generous support and investment that we have received from our backers.

“It’s a very exciting time for the company. The future looks very bright.”
