Rockit named ‘International Business of the Year’

Rockit – the company behind the multi-award-winning portable baby rocker – has been crowned ‘International Business of the Year’ at the FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards.

The South West finals of the national contest took place on Thursday 7 February and were designed to find the best small businesses from the region. Bristol-based Rockit – which launched in September 2017 – fought off stiff competition from other successful export businesses.

“We are currently distributing to over 40 countries across six continents,” said Dr. Nick Webb, Rockit’s inventor. “It’s a real honour to be recognised as the International Business of the Year by the Federation of Small Businesses.”

Rockit has also been selected by the Department for International Trade as ‘Export Champions’ and will be engaging with other companies, acting as an ambassador and guide through their export journeys.

“We have been delighted by the reaction to Rockit from both consumers and the nursery industry globally,” added ceo Matt Dyson. “We are currently busy developing additional products to build our range and we anticipate launching these at Kind und Jugend in September.”

It’s not the first industry accolade for Rockit, which also won the hotly-contested Innovation Award at last year’s biggest ever Progressive Preschool Awards 2019.
