Commercial is celebrating after winning two awards at the BOSS Industry Awards 2018 in London. The annual awards are hosted by trade association, BOSS Federation, and recognise excellence in the UK office supplies and services industry.
Commercial’s first win of the evening was in the Dealer Excellence Award category for businesses with more than £5m turnover. The judges were looking for evidence of innovation, business excellence, sales growth and service. They said they were impressed with Commercial’s continued sales growth rate, sustainable approach and firm understanding of changing market dynamics.
Further success quickly followed as Commercial was named winner of the Sustainable Leadership Award. This award considers how the principles of sustainability have been incorporated into company operations in three areas: financial, environmental and social. In this category the judges said that Commercial’s entry stood out for its demonstration of leadership across the three pillars, with sustainability firmly embedded in the corporate culture.
Simone Hindmarch, Commercial’s Co-Founder and Managing Director said, “the BOSS Industry Awards are the benchmark for excellence in our industry, and we are delighted to take home these awards. These two categories reflect the most important principles that underpin our business; the service we provide, the relationships we build with our customers, and our commitment to sustainability. We thoroughly enjoyed the event and the opportunity to meet some of the many other fantastic companies from across the industry.”
Philip Lawson, CEO of BOSS added, “it was no surprise to me that one of our leading members, Commercial, did so well at our annual awards. Sustainability is at the heart of their corporate culture and Simone, Arthur and the rest of the team have been able to grow their company very successfully by attracting customers who share similar values.”
