Local companies have been recognised for their success by being shortlisted in the 2019 Lanarkshire Business Excellence Awards.

The awards, hosted by North and South Lanarkshire Councils, are now in their 26th year and celebrate the success and achievements of Lanarkshire businesses.

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner at Motherwell Concert Hall on Friday 31 May, hosted by actress and comedienne Elaine C Smith. Tickets are now on sale for the event at www.lanarkshirebusinessevents.co.uk 

"Congratulations to all the companies shortlisted for this year's Lanarkshire Business Excellence Awards," said Graeme Currie, Operations Manager at Business Gateway Lanarkshire.

"The quality of entries this year was exceptionally high, with businesses rising to the challenges faced in the last year with innovation, product development, investment in training, and strong management.

"We have a very strong shortlist and the judges are looking forward to meeting the companies and listening to their submissions. They would also like to thank all the companies who submitted entries this year; they made judging a difficult process but one which highlighted the quality and success of business across Lanarkshire."

The charity partner for the 2019 awards ceremony is Kilbryde Hospice and the organisers are appealing for donations of raffle prizes to help raise vital funds. Please contact the Awards Team on 07720 252542 or awards@lbea.info if you can help.
