Training specialists claim best business award

BLACKRIDGE-based construction and plant-training specialists Sibbald have won a prestigious award.
The firm scooped the Best Business accolade at the West Lothian Chamber of Commerce Excellence Awards. This award recognises and rewards a local business that achieves outstanding customer service and operational excellence.
David Sibbald, Managing Director for Sibbald said, “It is a tremendous honour to swoop the main award against such strong contenders.”
David paid homage to his loyal and dedicated staff, without whom he said it wouldn’t have been possible.
Andrew Morrell, the company’s Sales and Marketing Manager who was also on hand to collect the award, added, “David continues to deliver outstanding service to both the local and wider communities and can be proud of what he has achieved in his 40 years of business.
“However, like David mentioned it’s all down to the hard work from our outstanding team we have here at Sibbald.”

Andrew Morrell, Dawn Dickson and David Sibbald celebrate the win.
