Hartlepool business champions urged to enter prestigious awards by former winner

Hartlepool business champions urged to enter prestigious awards by former winner

Reigning Hartlepool Business of the Year, Seymour Civil Engineering, is helping in the search for the town's next business champion by becoming the main sponsors of a prestigious awards event. 

The search is once again on to find the champions of Hartlepool’s business community for the Hartlepool Business Awards in May. 

Seymour Civil Engineering lifted the Overall Business of the Year trophy last year in what was a landmark 40th year for the company. 

And the leading civils firm has recognised the ongoing importance of the awards by becoming its main sponsor. 

Kevin Byrne, Seymour Civil Engineering MD, is now leading the charge to encourage more Hartlepool businesses to enter the awards. 

He said: “Last year was such an important year for us, we completed some very significant projects for major clients and won some big national construction awards. 

“To pick up the Overall Business of the Year Award at the Hartlepool Business Awards was the cherry on the cake for us.  

“Respect in the industry is great but when it comes from your hometown business peers it feels fantastic.  

“We feel that Hartlepool Business Awards are the perfect way to come together to back business in the town and acknowledge the abundant examples of excellence.” 

Andrew Steel, Hartlepool Business Forum Leader, said: “After winning Overall Business of the Year last year it’s great to see Seymour Civil Engineering backing this annual event by becoming our main sponsor for this year. 

“Seymour is a first-class Hartlepool company with firm roots in the town, only strengthened recently with news of its new training academy which is due to get started in Brenda Road. 

“No matter how big or small we would urge Hartlepool companies to push themselves forward and enter this year. 

“We want to showcase our strong, resilient and new Hartlepool businesses.” 

Entry is free and there are 11 categories in total and the Overall Business of the Year winner attracts a £1,000 prize. 

The closing date for entries is 5pm on Friday, March 29 and firms are restricted to three entries only.  

Tickets for the awards night on Thursday, May 16 at Borough Hall - which includes a three-course dinner - are £450 for a table of 10 or £45 each.   

To reserve tickets call (01429) 283802 or email Cheryl.Menzies@hartlepoolfe.ac.uk
