3 times a BIBA !!

Despite the ongoing economic crisis taking a stranglehold on so many businesses acrossEurope, the last 12 months have been a triumph for Pendlewood where a focused and friendly approach has generated a period of considerable growth.

Now, with an eye on building even further on this success, our achievements to date – and our plans for the future – have been recognised in the nominations for the highly coveted business awards…The BIBA’s (Be Inspired Business Awards).

Following exhaustive judging and analysis of our plans and performances, we’re delighted to announce we’re through to the finals of all three categories in which we were entered:

  • Small Business of the Year Award – for companies up to 250 employees
  • Excellence in Customer Service Award – open to any business in the North West of England
  • Change for Growth Award – open to businesses that have demonstrated high performance and managed to grow their business in a recession

 Thank you to all our loyal customers and to our fantastic team at Pendlewood who, together, have made it possible for us to reach the finals of the BIBA’s. The winners are decided at the end of August…and we’ll keep you posted at the time.
