Newtec – a specialist in designing, developing and manufacturing equipment and technologies for satellite communications – today announced it has been awarded the title “National Champion for Belgium” in the European Business Awards 2016, which honor innovative businesses in numerous industries, including engineering, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and transport.

In addition, it was noted that Newtec also contributes to Belgium’s economy, with the company recently boosting the number of people it employs in the region by more than 10 per cent.

Looking forward to 2017, Newtec expects to see further growth with demand for High Throughput Satellites, multiservice infrastructures and services in high value markets. Newtec will continue enlarging the addressable markets for its customers to stay profitable.
