It was a big night for Clydebank firm Campbell and Kennedy at the recent Working4Business Awards where it scooped three accolades at the glittering award ceremony.

The company, which celebrated its 60th birthday in 2013, won awards for “excellence in customer service”, “excellence in people development”, and an award for the best performing business with more than 25 employees.

The firm, based in Clydebank Business Park, is a well known across West Dunbartonshire, and has recently taken part in projects including the installation of solar panels to a number of primary schools across the area – including St Mary’s and St Stephen’s primaries.

Gerry Kennedy, managing director at Campbell and Kennedy, said that he was “absolutely delighted” with the accolades and felt “proud” to be part of the inaugural awards.

He told the Post: “We are all thrilled to have won these awards and it makes it even more special that our efforts and hard work have been recognised in the area where Campbell and Kennedy was founded more than 60 years ago and where we are headquartered today.

“Clydebank is where we served our very first customers so being recognised at the Working4Business Awards is a great achievement for us.”

The winners were announced at a glitzy ceremony at Clydebank Town Hall attended by more than 150 guests, who were entertained through the evening by host Kaye Adams and comedian Des McLean, who performed the after dinner entertainment.

Campbell and Kennedy began in the area as a television installer, but has since broadened into areas such as renewable energy and fire safety and now works with local councils and housing associations to help provide sustainable schools, homes and colleges.

Mr Kennedy also offered an insight into what the future held for the company following the awards success.

He said: “We hope to continue supporting young people in the local area by offering apprenticeships and work experience placements. These awards demonstrate our commitment to excellence and will allow us to grow, paving the way for further investment into new services that will create jobs and learning opportunities for our community.”

West Dunbartonshire Council leader Jonathan McColl, who attended the ceremony, said: “We are delighted with the response to the first Working4Business awards. The awards have provided a platform for celebrating the category winners and their tremendous achievements.

“The winners really do showcase the best of West Dunbartonshire’s thriving business sector. It is also important to recognise the efforts and achievements of the wider short-listed finalists, and indeed, all the firms which entered the awards.”
