We are very pleased to announce we have been recognised as Highly Commended at this year’s Red Rose Awards 2016 for our fridge van engineering success.
The Red Rose Awards is a local event where Lancashire businesses are recognised for the business excellence and celebrate their achievements. Now in its 6th year, the award ceremony is a regular annual event in all businesses calendar, from a self-employeed entrepreneur to large size businesses trading both nationally and internationally, doing their bit to highlight Lancashire on the trading map.
We decided to enter the Engineering Business Award category, which was open to engineering business which design and/or manufacture parts and products for sectors such as aerospace, automotive, construction, technology and rail. It was a tough category to be part of, with engineering and manufacturing being a strong growing sector in Lancashire and we were delighted to make it on the finalist list after attending a live interview . On the night we missed out on the main winners title but we were honoured to still receive a mention as a Highly Commended Finalist in the category, demonstrating that we are capable of achieving excellence in our industry sector with room for growth and further improvements.
Award organisers commented on the calibre of entries this particular year, creating a challenging task for the panel of expert judges in selecting a shortlist from the numerous entries in each award category. We feel very privileged to have received a special acknowledgement on the evening, which saw 1,100 guests attend the glamours event at the Winter Gardens Empress Ballroom in Blackpool. It was a fantastic evening for some of our team members to attend and celebrate our recent growth success, which would have not been possible without the constant support of our customers and welcoming new clients to our portfolio of fridge van conversions.
