Excited to share that Loft Boarding Scotland have made it through to the semi-finals at the WeDO Scotland Business awards 2019. Recognised by Business Gateway as one of the most highly respected awards for the Entrepreneurial and Business communities in Scotland, the WeDo Scotland awards is now in its 9th year and celebrates the successes of Scottish entrepreneurs and companies.
Loft Boarding Scotland founder, Andrew Johnstone, was nominated by the Executive Team at the start of the year in two categories, and has now reached the semi-finals for the New Start Business of the Year award. This award is open to businesses that have been trading for 3 years or less, making it ideal for Loft Boarding Scotland.
Founded in May 2017, the company began when Andrew discovered a novel solution for tackling the lack of storage in his new-build home and found that his neighbours were equally interested. Arranging a bulk order for his development, Andrew noticed a gap in the Scottish market for a professionally fitted loft storage solution. The company has grown rapidly, and now provides a nationwide service, fitting over 400 raised floor systems and ladders each year from Dumfries to Aberdeen.
With previous award winners including the likes of Martin Pickering of Pickering’s Gin, Andrew was delighted to be considered and even more amazed to make it through to the semi-finals.
“It’s so encouraging to have my efforts noticed by this group of inspirational and highly successful people that even if I don’t make it through to the finals I’ll be extremely happy and proud to have had this recognition.” – Andrew Johnstone
Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on the 24th May. The event is open to members and non-members of the WeDO community, and there are still a number of Early Bird tickets available here: https://www.wedoscotland.com/events/2019-wedo-scottish-business-awards/
