Winners crowned at prestigious business awards

Congratulations from ScottishPower to the winners of this year’s Glasgow Business Awards’ Green Champion and the Cheshire Business Awards’ Business of the Year (up to 10 employees).

It was inspiring to see the calibre of talent presented at both the Glasgow and Cheshire Business Awards and to see two extremely worthy winners crowned.

The entrants showcased impressive enterprise, innovation and achievements across both regions but only one winner could be crowned in both Glasgow and Cheshire.

The University of Strathclyde, Technology and Innovation Centre, picked up the coveted Green Champion Award in Glasgow while Window-Tint was crowned Business of the Year (up to 10 employees) in Cheshire.

Jo Heraghty, Senior Manager, Business Marketing at Scottish Power, said: "Both winners demonstrated the determination and innovation required to run successful businesses.

"There was a fantastic range of organisations in the Green Champion category at the Glasgow Business Awards but the commitment to improving sustainability and clean technology set the University of Strathclyde, Technology and Innovation Centre apart from the crowd.

"In Cheshire, the Window-Tint team has shown exactly what success can be achieved when everyone in a company works together for a common goal and is focused on providing quality service to customers.

"Congratulations to both winners – we look forward to seeing them continue to develop and build upon their award wins in the coming years."

University of Strathclyde, Technology and Innovation Centre

Gordon Hodge, Head of Conferencing and Events at the University of Strathclyde, Technology and Innovation Centre, said: "Gaining the Green Tourism Gold accreditation and our positive relationship with the Chamber of Commerce gave us the confidence to enter, but we were genuinely shocked to hear our name announced as the winner.

"Sustainability is an increasingly important factor for organisers choosing an event venue – particularly our government and public sector clients – and our efforts support not only the University’s sustainability goals at an institutional level but also Glasgow’s ambitions to rank highly in the Global Destination Sustainability Index, and to be the UK’s first net-zero city. The University of Strathclyde is determined to play its part in leading that change.

"The work of the Technology and Innovation Centre’s Sustainability team continues to inform the development of our product and processes, ensuring that we maintain our status and remain at the forefront of sustainable event delivery.

"Inspired by our Green Tourism success and our participation in the Circular Glasgow programme, we look for opportunities to work in partnership with our clients to deliver events more sustainably."

Window-Tint

Tom Smith, Director at Window-Tint, said: "The last 12 months have been our best so far. We’ve taken on three new employees so we’ve gone from myself founding the business in 2010 from my bedroom to now having a team of eight people.

"It’s brilliant to be recognised with such a prestigious award and we’re excited to see what the future has in store."

From all at ScottishPower, congratulations again to both winners, we’re excited to watch them go from strength to strength.
