Lanarkshire Business Awards Winners!

This is the 26th year of the awards, which are hosted by North and South Lanarkshire Councils.
Councillor Allan Graham, Convener of the Enterprise and Growth Committee at North Lanarkshire Council said: “Congratulations to all our winners, who have demonstrated excellence in the way they manage their business and deliver quality services.

“Lanarkshire is the perfect location for business, but it is the people who work in and run each company that makes them successful. Our awards recognise these people, their skills, expertise, talents and commitment and say thank you for their efforts in making Lanarkshire a great place to work and invest.”

South Lanarkshire Council’s Chair of Community and Enterprise Resources, Councillor John Anderson, said: “Lanarkshire has long been a hotbed of successful and diverse businesses and so, to be a winner at these awards, an extremely high level of excellence has to be achieved.

“The winners this year have shown that this exceptional standard is not only continuing, but flourishing, as they nurture business success, as they innovate and as they recognise the expertise and dedication of all who work with them, at every level.

“It is also important to acknowledge that the overall standard of applicants, and especially the finalists, is as a high a calibre we have had in the 26 years we have staged these awards.

“Congratulations to them all and long may they continue to contribute to the success of business across Lanarkshire.”
