Burnley businesses honoured at awards

The best of #BrilliantBurnley was celebrated with an evening of glitz and glamour at Towneley Hall.

The annual awards event is organised by Burnley Council and the Burnley Bondholder Brand Scheme to promote Burnley’s business success and the borough’s booming economic infrastructure. Lancashire Business View supported the event as media partner.

Burnley Council chief executive, Mick Cartledge said: “As a town we aim to be the best in the North West for economic growth, investing in huge strategic economic projects, and working side by side with the private sector to ensure more of the right people know about Burnley’s success; that Burnley is investment ready and open for business.”

Awards were handed out across 14 categories. Mark Crabtree earned an individual award for his leadership, and his business AMS Neve won the Digital Impact award. Pipeline Induction Heat took the title of Burnley Business of the Year.
