Chris Aylett, chief executive of the MIA said: 'As a result of hard work, professionalism and dedication, DC Electronics have been an outstanding success over the few years since their foundation.
'They have overcome every difficulty faced by any typical SME following the financial meltdown of 2008/9 and emerged stronger than ever.
'Actively putting in the extra graft and investment needed to grow their exports, particularly in the USA, the world's largest marketplace for their expertise, they even had the courage and vision to open their own company in the heart of that country. They truly deserve their excellence to be recognised by winning the MIA Award for the SME Business of the Year, their third award for excellence in the past three years, in itself, a record performance.'
