Grundon Waste Management walked away with top honours and the prestigious title of The NatWest Large Business Award at the Oxfordshire Business Awards 2015 on Friday night (June 19).
Grundon’s entry beat strong competition from fellow finalists Ability Matters Group and Polythene UK, impressing judges with its business achievements, innovation and commitment to the local community.
The award was presented to Clayton Sullivan-Webb, Managing Director of Grundon, who commented: “We’re absolutely delighted to have been announced as the winner of The NatWest Large Business Award. Being headquartered in Oxfordshire and having a significant proportion of our operations based in the county, receiving this award means a lot to Grundon.
“To be recognised as a business that has shown continued growth and development over the past year, along with a commitment to our customers, our staff, the local community and the economic growth of the region is very satisfying, and is testament to our fantastic team of people.”
For 21 years, the Oxfordshire Business Awards has been recognising, rewarding and promoting the excellence of Oxfordshire-based companies. Organised and supported by 14 of the county’s leading organisations, the Awards are firmly established as a benchmark for excellence in today’s competitive business environment.
The Large Business Award category was open to Oxfordshire-based businesses that employ more than 25 staff or have an annual turnover of more than £5 million.
The judges were looking for evidence of business growth; a commitment to the local community, including local job creation; and a written business plan demonstrating strategy and a vision for the next 3-5 years. In addition, they wanted to see proven success and achievement during the past 12 months; a management team with the ability to drive the business forward and a genuine commitment to staff.Back to news
