Billington Scoops Business Award


 


Barnsley structural steelwork contractor Billington Structures won the prize for Business Growth at the Barnsley Business Awards 2008.


 


The glamorous event, at which BBC Look North’s Clare Frisby was the compére, took place at Barnsley’s Brooklands Hotel on Friday 21 November 2008. 


 


The award, sponsored by the Barnsley Chronicle recognised Billington’s achievement of significant and sustained growth or development over the past three years.  Since 2004, the company has increased its turnover by 43% to £55m and seen an associated increase in pre-tax profit of 319% (£4.5m).


 


The announcement of this award at a time when many media correspondents are talking about economic doom and gloom can do nothing but boost the confidence of the company, and demonstrate to its customers that it is committed to developing business regardless of industry pessimism.


 


The prestige of this award is highlighted by the quality of the other shortlisted companies:


 



  • Stagecoach Yorkshire – part of one of the largest bus operators in the UK;

  • Lavender International NDT Consultancy – offering non-destructive testing services to both national and international markets;

  • Haigh Pettican Ltd – pipeline construction using the latest technology in welding fabrication and installation.

The judges commented that this was a close run contest, making it all the more special that Billington won.  They observed that Billingtons: ‘has invested heavily in technology, its processes and workforce, allowing them to achieve the incredibly high standards necessary to deliver exacting customer requirements’.
