Lanarkshire Business Excellence Awards 2019.
Celebrating the achievements of the local business community, The Lanarkshire Business Excellence Awards 2019 winners have been announced at a formal awards dinner in Motherwell.
The awards recognised individual and team success across ten categories and UKSE sponsored Lanarkshire’s Best Business of 51 or more employees.
Clear Business Water Ltd, who provide businesses with essential services, such as water and energy, were crowned winners and presented with the award by UKSE regional executive, Scott Webb.
Comedienne and actress, Elaine C Smith, was the perfect compere for the evening and guests were entertained by community choir, Soundsational.
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.”
