Earlier today, the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce delivered messages to 82 businesses confirming that they have made it through to the final stage of the prestigious BIBA awards. Twitter is full of messages from companies delighted to have received their 2018 finalist status.
The award entries were submitted in April and during May interviews were held at the Chamber office situated in Blackpool. The final stage known as ‘BIBAs on Tour’, will see all the judges hopping on a tour bus for 30 minute visits with each finalist.
In 2014, Suresite won the small business of the year category and was a finalist in the same category in 2016. This year, Suresite are finalists in the service business of the year, employer of the year and business of the year categories.
This follows an exceptional growth spurt for the Preston based company that now employs 49. Initially serving the forecourt sector, the company has recently diversified into general retail.
Nick Healy, Managing Director, said: “We are over the moon to be finalists in three categories and hope to be taking home some trophies in September”.
