Southam-based Mask-arade has been shortlisted for the Santander Small to Medium Sized Business of the Year Award in the 2014 National Business Awards.

The business creates personalised masks – initially for the ever growing hen and stag market. This idea quickly evolved into celebrity party masks and now a whole range of fully licensed products have been added to their stock.

Going up against nine other businesses they will compete against the likes of Bulldog Skincare for Men and The Fresh Group. The winner will be revealed at the National Business Awards gala dinner held on November 11 at Park Lane’s Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

Stephen Dury of Santander said: “Since filling a gap in the market six years ago, Mask-arade has established itself as the world’s leading provider of personalised, celebrity and character masks. Under the leadership of the 3 Maskateers (the directors) they have delivered outstanding growth and have developed a team that mirror their drive, determination and passion for the business.”

Mask-arade director Dean Walton said: “This is fantastic news for our incredible team who have worked so hard to make this possible. Since our appearance on Dragons Den the business has gone from strength to strength. We have just returned from the World Licensing Expo in Las Vegas where more doors continued to open.”
