As a business we work hard to exceed expectations and our whole team feel proud when we receive industry awards or thanks and praise from our customers and clients.
In November 2014, GRS a Gallagher Group Company won the National Joint Utilities Group (NJUG) award for sustainability having opened a new recycling facility in Sheffield. We worked with our clients and industry partners in Sheffield to bring recycled aggregate to an area that previously had no supply. This not only significantly reduces the amount of waste to landfill but also makes Sheffield a safer place by removing over 8000 lorry movements in the city each year.
At the 2015 Salford Business Awards, Gallagher was crowned winner of the prestigious Large Business of the Year Award. This is the premier award of the year with entrants required to show excellence and outstanding achievement in all aspects of their operations.
Salford is a great place to do business and a hotbed for talent with Salford University and its 20,000 students at the heart of the community, this has been a key driver for the city which has grown over 12% in the past decade and undoubtedly contributed towards our own growth. Being recognised for our innovation and customer delivery in a city with some of the biggest media, technology and services companies in Britain is a true honour.
The Salford Business Award judging panel said that they “were overwhelmed by Gallagher’s innovation and growth over the past year which has seen high staff retention rates, first class customer service and a number of innovations at every level throughout the organisation”. The judges also noted that “the company excelled in all areas of business.”
In addition to the Large Business of the year award, we were delighted to be Runners-up in the Innovation Category in recognition of our GARD system and the unique benefits which it delivers to our clients and customers.
Ian Stewart, Salford Mayor, congratulated us for our awards at this year’s Salford Business Awards, “This is an excellent achievement, one that your company should be proud of, especially when you consider the high standard of applications received this year”.
