This week marked another historic date in the calendar for local business, Mobile Bar Hire Ltd. Attending the gala dinner for the Excellence in Bexley Business Awards 2017 held at the Marriott Hotel, the company won in the category Made In Bexley.
The star studded event hosted by the Heart Radio presenter Becky Ives, the event was attended by over 200 people whom all have connections to Bexley. With a who host of different categories such as best Tech Company, Best Business, Best Customers Service etc there was a category for every business.
Previously Mobile Bar Hire Ltd won the Best Hospitality Business back in 2013 but this year they decided to go in for a different category altogether. The Made In Bexley category appealed to the company as every step of the process for the company now involves a very, very local supply chain. From designing bar counters, to the materials they are manufactured from through to the assembly process and even the finishing touches are ALL supplied within the London Borough of Bexley. These accompanied by the Bexley Crest which goes onto each bar counter enabled the company to stand out from others.
Before presenting the Star Shaped Award to the directors The Sandhu Brothers Council leader Teresa ONeil said The judges said, this business clearly shows how they have grown by using a very local supply chain. The companys commitment to employing apprentices which then can lead into full time positions within the company are seen as a true positive.
Company director Avtar Sandhu MBE said The category was a very tough one particularly as there were some larger companies than ours, everyone is committed to raising their company profile and we regard everyone as a WINNER. Having said that as directors we are only as good as our team and so the credit goes to the team and of course our clients.
