Scottish Borders Business Excellence Awards 2015 – Application date extended

Applications for the 2015 Scottish Borders Business Excellence Awards are now being invited, and the deadline for applications is now Friday 25th September 2015.  This annual awards scheme, sponsored by the Scottish Borders Chamber of Commerce, celebrates the best that businesses in the Borders have to offer. This year’s ceremony will be held in Kelso’s Springwood Park on 6th November.  
With the economy beginning to pick up after a number of years of recession, businesses throughout the Borders have learned that excellence pays dividends in today’s global market and that planning for the future means having to combine excellence in both product and service in order to succeed. 
The Chamber believes it is right to honour those local businesses which have clearly demonstrated the levels of quality, innovation and expertise necessary for success.
The Award categories and application criteria are:
  • Tourism Business of the Year – Sponsored by Bruce Stevenson Insurance Brokers
  • Micro Business of the Year for Environmental Innovation
  • Micro Business of the Year for Business Innovation
  • Manufacturer of the Year – Sponsored by Davidson Chalmers
  • Financial Business of the Year - Sponsored by Fraser James Partnership
