The Glasgow Business Awards celebrated their 25th anniversary this year!
We were pleased to be selected as a finalist for the Family Business of the Year!
After a rigorous application process we were thrilled to once again be selected as a finalist along side 4 other Glaswegian family businesses:
A wide range of companies each excelling within their own sectors it was an honour to be nominated alongside these other businesses. Everyone who works for a family business knows the additional care, love and attention put into each activity that takes place. Therefore, it is great to know that the other shortlisted companies will also be grateful for the recognition and opportunity to attend this fabulous event.
The evening was hosted by the central Hilton Hotel in Glasgow City Centre. For the first time, the entire Elite team attended the event, putting on our finest dresses and suites to celebrate in style! In the run up to our 70th anniversary, this year has seen a great deal of change for our company from our product range to new services, a new location and showroom!
The Sound Sational choir started the evening with some excellent entertainment before Fred McAuley took to the stage, once again keeping proceedings running smoothly while keeping the laughs coming!
Following a fabulous dinner, our fingers were crossed as the award ceremony began. As the first award up weren’t kept waiting too long! The winner was… Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms! That’s right no trophy for us this year. However… all was not lost. The judging team were so impressed by our application, story and interview that a Special Commendation was created just for us! Always the bridesmaid never the bride comes to mind, however, as one of only three commendations in 17 categories and nearly 100 finalists, we were very pleased!
Kind words from the judges, a photo opportunity with our new certificate and a wonderful bit of recognition for all the hard work Betsy, Greg and the team do each and every day to build on Fred’s legacy! Fingers crossed with our grand opening, anniversary and more continuous growth over the coming year, we might just get the trophy next year!
