Following months of anticipation, we can now unveil the winners of the East Renfrewshire Awards 2018, which showcased the region’s best businesses.

Over 150 guests attended the most prestigious night in the local business calendar at the Busby Hotel. Hosted by Jennifer Reoch, the guests were also entertained by Edward Reid.

The event, hosted by East Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce, also raised over £1000 for local charity Include Me 2 Club.

Audrey Ross, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland said: “Once again we are delighted to be this year’s principal sponsor of the East Renfrewshire Business Awards and the category sponsor of the ‘Developing East Renfrewshire’s Young Person’s Workforce Award’.

“Being involved gives our business the opportunity to reinforce our commitment to the East Renfrewshire area as our plan to deliver new developments at Barrhead, Neilston and Maidenhill in Newton Mearns progresses.”

“The winners have impressed the panel of judges and I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone –they are all an incredible showcase for their drive, spirit and commitment to the local area.”

John F Hamilton, ERCC Chamber President said ““East Renfrewshire businesses are vital to the economy; generating jobs, increasing spend and enabling growth. It’s inspiring to listen to and recognise these successful companies’ stories and achievements at the 2018 Business Awards. Congratulations to all the winners and finalists and thank you once again to all our sponsors.”
