The 2023 Lanarkshire Business Excellence Awards have been launched by North and South Lanarkshire Councils.

One of Scotland’s longest running awards, the Lanarkshire Business Excellence Awards recognise and celebrate the success and achievements of local businesses.

Applications are open to all Lanarkshire businesses and social enterprises across all sectors and are free to enter. Companies can apply for up to two of the ten categories.

Robert Brown, the chair of South Lanarkshire Council’s Community and Enterprise Resources, said:

We have a tremendous range of innovative businesses across Lanarkshire in all sorts of sectors. This is great opportunity for them to show off their achievements. I am sure every business putting themselves forward will be of the usual high standard and reflect how they continue to thrive and work to overcome all the external issues that are being faced across the business sector and beyond.

The strength and resilience of our local businesses never ceases to amaze me, and I look forward to seeing the high calibre of entries from across Lanarkshire.

The last few years have been challenging and our awards celebrate the achievements of businesses across the area who have shown their resilience and innovation in adapting to changing markets, financial situations and customer behaviours.
