bysteel, a dst company, a reference in the engineering and construction of metallic structures, is competing for the respected “European Business Awards” which bring together important companies from 33 European countries for the title of “National Public Champion” under the Import/Export category after winning the title of “National Champion”.

The company from Braga already has its institutional video online and it will now compete with all the other participants by means of a vote which is already open to the public and which will take place until February 24th 2014. The second stage of public voting will take place between March 3rd and April 16th where a sole European champion will be crowned from amongst the national champions, announced and awarded at the Awards' Gala to be held in May 2015.

To vote on the presentation of the corporate video - where the director of bysteel, Rodrigo Crespo de Araújo, presents an overview of the business and of the success of company activity in Portugal and abroad - just access the website, select “Portugal” from the list of participating country flags and choose the video “bysteel - dst group” in the video options of the competitors. A total of 709 companies representing 33 European countries are competing for the title of National Champion, a record number of participations in EBA 2014/15, sponsored by RSM International.

For José Teixeira, chairman of the dst group, “it will be a recognition of all the work carried out by bysteel if we achieve the objective of becoming “National Public Champion” at the prominent European Business Awards, one of the most important competitions in Europe and chaired by a highly qualified jury.”

The European Business Awards (EBA) are an international recognition that reward innovation, excellence and sustainability as well as the corporate ethics of the best European companies. In 2013 more than 95,000 people voted online for their favourite companies.


About the European Business Awards

The European Business Awards recognise and reward excellence, good practices, corporate ethics and the innovation of the most successful, sustainable companies in Europe. The competition serves three purposes for the European business community: it provides examples for the business community, celebrates their individual and organisational success and makes available case studies so that everyone can learn from these successful organisations.
