With over 200 award entries (a record number) across the categories, the competition was incredibly high and judged by an independent panel of experts, who spent several weeks assessing entries and visiting businesses.

Against a strong shortlist the judges said that they were ‘impressed by Aquarian Cladding’s product innovation, commitment to staff development and clear plan for growth.’ One judge commented that ‘the business had defied the difficult market conditions to create a business that is resilient and on the up.’ All of the judges were also impressed by the business’ current trading figures to date.

Open to businesses across the South West, the annual awards are the region’s biggest and most prestigious business awards. Hosted by award-winning comedian Russell Kane, the event at Ashton Gate in Bristol was attended by over 600 guests that included celebrities, VIPs, business leaders and professionals.

Aquarian’s Managing Director Paul Richards is, of course, delighted, ‘This award is recognition of a fantastic team ethic. I am proud of our independent, intelligent approach to business where everyone in the team is encouraged and supported to contribute to our success.’ He continued “As a distributor of off-site manufactured cladding systems in a post-Brexit, post-Grenfell environment, the market is challenging but the business continues to grow thanks to our smart solutions.”
