South Cheshire Chamber Business Awards 2018

On Friday 23rd November 2018, the South Cheshire Chamber hosted their annual business awards, at the prestigious Crewe Hall Hotel.

The awards celebrate the best of South Cheshire business excellence, and the event is a sell out every year, with hundreds of businesses both entering and attending the awards.

The Alextra Group were delighted to have been selected as a finalist for Large Business of the Year 2018, shortlisted with 4 other businesses. Other finalists included our host for the evening Crewe Hall Hotel, Watts Commercial Finance Ltd, Alpha Omega Securities and Rookery Hall Hotel.

The Large Business of the Year award was the last award of the evening, so plenty of time for food, drink and anticipation! Pictured above is the Alextra Group table.

Alextra narrowly missed out on winning the Large Business of the Year (so the judges told us!) and we are proud that we were selected as a Finalist in what is a very strong category. Previous winners include Bentley Motors and Mornflake Oats.

Congratulations to this years winners, Watts Commercial Finance Ltd.
