Nearly 200 business people from Kirklees, Calderdale and Wakefield gather together for Eaton Smith’s Business of the Year Awards. Now in its 23rd year, the competition is run annually in conjunction with the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce and the Department for International Trade. The awards recognise the hard work, brilliance and innovation of the best businesses in our region.
The event was hosted by Eaton Smith’s Senior Partner, Mike Webb, who said of the monthly winners; “What all the monthly winners have in common is diligence, flair and a determination to carve out a profitable niche in unexplored areas of their individual market places and, for that, they are all to be congratulated.”.
The awards were presented by local businessman Ken Davy. The winner of the Business of the Year was Arrow Self Drive, a vehicle rental company based in Huddersfield which has over 2,000 vehicles on fleet. In second place was Hunter Safety Solutions and third place went to Propack Direct Mail Ltd.
The Eaton Smith Business of the Year Awards runs every year and is the culmination of the Business of the Month Awards. Applications are welcomed for all types and sizes of business.
