The company, which has been providing pest control services across Wandsworth and Greater London for 28 years, was also named Best SME category winner.
Hosted by Wandsworth Chamber of Commerce, in association with McDonalds as headline sponsor, the 2018 Wandsworth Business Awards aimed to recognise and reward the achievements of the local business community across the whole of the London Borough of Wandsworth. There were eleven awards in total and all category winners were put forward for the coveted title of overall ‘Business of the Year’.
Beaver Pest Control was chosen from among the other category winners for the Business of the Year award because of their quality of service and commitment to helping their customers solve their pest control issues not matter what time of day.
Speaking at the ceremony, Julia Pittman, Beaver Pest Control Director said: “We are absolutely overwhelmed and ecstatic to win not one but two awards and be named Wandsworth Business of the Year 2018. We’ve been trading in Wandsworth for 28 years, starting locally and quickly expanding to cover all of London, but this remains our home.
“The awards are in recognition of our staff. People often ask me what’s our unique selling point. I tell them it’s our people. Each and every one of our 60 staff work so hard every day – including this evening where we have some of our staff working on a school building spider infestation. It’s because of all their hard work that we’ve won this award.”
Presenting the award, Mike Smith from headline sponsor Banham Security, said: “Selecting a winner-of-winners from among the successful cohort of category winners was by no means an easy or simple task. The decision to choose tonight’s business of the year, and ultimately our ambassador for business in Wandsworth for the next twelve months rightly took time. However, I’m thrilled that Beaver Pest Control were selected as the winner and I extend my congratulations to them.”
Steve Pinto, chief executive of Wandsworth Chamber of Commerce, added: “I continue to be very impressed with the quality, enthusiasm and passion of the businesses that enter these awards. They demonstrate that Wandsworth is an exciting place to work and recognition from these awards can make a difference when securing new customers and new business. My congratulations to all the finalists and winners, and especially to Beaver Pest Control as overall Business of the Year.”
