AD Construction say winning has made them “stand out from the crowd”

The reigning champions of the Bexley Business Excellence Awards has said winning the award has been great for business, and has encouraged local companies to not miss out on the chance of making the shortlist for 2016.

The awards, in association with Ocado - and backed by the Bexley Times - celebrates the achievements of borough’s vibrant business community, and will culminate with a sparkling, black-tie ceremony at the Bexleyheath Marriott Hotel on June 9.

It celebrate the achievements of the borough’s vibrant business community and will offer 13 new categories in 2016.

AD Construction carried off last year’s title.

Business development executive, Sonya Russell, said: “It’s a fantastic accolade for an SME and we were really delighted to win.

“We work in the public sector and the awards help us to stand out from the crowd because our business is very competitive.

“The award gave us a lot of publicity and we put the logos on our letterheads, website and email signatures. It is such a simple process to enter and I would urge you to go onto the website and see how easy and straightforward it is.”

Former apprentice Laura Westpfel, 19, who has been taken on as a staff marketing assistant, said: “It’s a really good company to work for and I am very happy there.

“I was really pleased to learn that I was mentioned in the application which won the company this award.”

A local family firm, AD Construction employs 220 people and has turned over £28m.

It was highly commended in the commitment to the community category, and won the employee training and development category – the latter thanks to their innovative apprenticeship scheme which aims to recruit and retain young people locally.

Linda Bailey, Bexley council’s cabinet member for regeneration and growth, added: “I hope many local businesses will enter the awards.

“They give businesses an excellent opportunity to celebrate their achievements and be recognised for their hard work and dedication.”
