Earlier this month at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland saw a number of businesses across our area up for the North East Business Awards in a number of different categories. At a prestigious venue with local business leaders dressed in their Sunday best this was surely going to be a night to remember. A number of businesses from the Consett area were up for awards including the well established Elddis Transport known for carrying goods and products across the country no matter what the conditions.
After a number of guest speakers had taken the stage a great meal of lamb with rich gravy was laid out for the attendees. This truly set the stage for the glitz and glamour of the North east Business awards presentation to come. With a number of categories available for local businesses to enter it was going to be interesting to see which companies would come out on top.
One local hero of these business awards was the triumph of the mighty Elddis. Elddis Transport took home the award for Corporate Responsibility and the Environment. This really shows how Elddis are a vital part of the community in Consett run with an ethical and responsible touch. It’s great to see a Consett business taking home such a prestigious award for their services and hard work.
Another company which are often seen around the local area who took home an award on the night was Derwentside Homes. Derwentside Homes blew away the competition winning two different awards at the ceremony. They took home the Heart of the Community award along with the prestigious Durham & Wearside Company of the Year. The Stanley based company has gone from strength to strength over the last few years and now manage over 7000 rented properties around the Derwentside area.
We here at Consett Magazine would like to congratulate all of the nominees and winners of the North East Business Awards.
