We are incredibly proud of how far Techbuyer has come as a business since its birth in 2005. During this time, we have been awarded, nominated, and shortlisted for a number of incredible awards that have fuelled our desire to grow and develop as a business, and ultimately act upon our company values.
The awards we have received cover a range of topics, including sustainability and the circular economy, as well as more business centred achievements, such as international trade. We would also like to celebrate our other key achievements and thank the entire Techbuyer team for helping us get to where we are today.

CRN Tech Impact Award – Best Circular Economy Company 2022
Techbuyer was named as the Best Circular Economy company at the CRN Tech Impact Awards 2022. This was a particularly big one for us as we were highly commended for this award in 2021 and circularity is central to our organisation’s services and operations. It was a real honour to take this award home!
ECommerce Awards - Best Sustainability Initiative 2022
Techbuyer was awarded the best sustainability initiative at this year’s ECommerce Awards.

Stevie Awards for Company of the Year
September 2021 saw Techbuyer take home a Gold Stevie Award for Company of The Year at the International Business Awards.

World IT Awards (Globee Awards) for Chief Technology Officer of the Year
Our IT director, Rich Kenny, won a Globee Award for Chief Technology Officer of the Year! Rich is an essential member of our team and facilities our technological, as well as sustainable, growth as a business. Rich plays an intrinsic part in the research we undertake as a company and the implication of this research into our business practices and messaging.
IEMA Awards for Circular Economy Business of the Year
In September 2020, Techbuyer won the Circular Economy Business of the Year at the IEMA Sustainability Awards. Sustainability and economic circularity are both at the core of our business and so this award was a great achievement for our business values and messaging.
Queens Awards for International Trade
The Queens Award for Enterprise for International Trade was awarded to Techbuyer in April 2020.
However, due to the pandemic, this award wasn’t accepted until mid-way through 2021. The award was presented to us by the Lord-Lieutenant Mrs Jo Ropner, representative of the Queen. The Queen’s Award was a turning point for Techbuyer in terms of awards and business recognition as it granted us the confidence to expand into other awards and press.
Nominations, Commendations and Recognitions:
Highly commended at the CRN Tech Awards
The CRN Tech Awards final took place virtually in 2021 and included some big names within the tech industry, including HP. Techbuyer was highly commended in the Best Circular Economy Company category and Interact was shortlisted for Sustainable IT project of the year. Although neither company took home a win at this event, to be shortlisted amongst some huge names within the IT sector was an amazing achievement.
