South Wiltshire Business Awards 2017 Finalist
We made it to the final of the South Wiltshire Business Awards 2017 for Best Performing Company.
Furniturebox is always trying to better itself to improve our customers experience whilst also maintaining competitiveness on the market. Where we can, we also like to help within the community and as a relatively small business we like to have that personal touch!
Furniturebox were lucky enough to be nominated for the South Wilts Business awards in two separate categories.
The first being the NEW BUSINESS AWARD:
‘This Award celebrates South Wiltshire’s best performing new companies and recognises those that have exceeded their initial targets for growth and financial performance in their first TWO YEARS of trading.’
…and the second was BUSINESS OF THE YEAR AWARD:
‘The Moore Stephens Business of the Year Award recognises the best of South Wiltshire’s companies with turnover of £500,000 and above.’
Over the last two months Furniturebox has had visits from the SWBOYA judging panel. We were asked a serious of questions which aimed to find out about many different aspects of our business. It was a process which allowed us not only to talk passionately about what we do, but also learn from the Judges invaluable experience. It gave us lots to think about, but more importantly it meant we were able to interact with the community with which we work in.
On June 22nd two representatives of furniturebox, Monty George and Dan Beckles, went along to the awards evening at the Salisbury City Hall. It was a glamorous evening with cocktails, music, canapes and they even had ex-JLS member Ashton Merygold performing. Hundreds of other local business showed up in the hope of winning one of the handful of awards up for grabs.
Furniturebox placed third in the NEW BUSINESS AWARD, narrowly missing out on top position by one judging point. Unfortunately we did not make the final in the BUSINESS OF THE YEAR AWARD, however we were up against businesses with decades of experience and ones that employed hundreds of people so there was not too much disappointment.
We hope to return next year and demonstrate further growth along with many more happy customers!
