G-One installer named Fastest Growth Company 2015

One of Grant’s G-One approved installers was recently named Fasted Growth Company 2015 at the prestigious Business Excellence Awards last month.

Horizon Renewable Energy Ltd are based in Lanarkshire and install Grant products throughout Scotland. They have already registered no less than fifteen Spira biomass installations so far this year, so the accolade is definitely well deserved.

The Business Excellence Awards were hosted in April in Grandola, Portugal. Held over two days, the Business Excellence Awards celebrate the best results of small and medium sized businesses throughout the world, attracting 500 UK business leaders and entrepreneurs. In addition to Fastest Growing Company, other categories in which companies can vie for the top spot include: Best Service Based, Most Innovative Company, Young Entrepreneur and Female Entrepreneur of the Year. Either side of the awards ceremony, business seminars and forums were held which the nominees and finalists were invited to attend.

The Awards evening was a black tie gala event. Here is a photograph of Gary McMillan, John McMillan and David Gibb from Horizon Renewable Energy collecting their award on the night. With such bright tartans, they must have been one of the most noticed winners of the night!

Horizon Renewable Energy Ltd, named Fastest Growth Company 2015

Director of Horizon Renewable Energy, Gary McMillan, is understandably proud of their Fastest Growth Company award. Discussing the company’s success, Gary writes, “I look forward to many more years of successful growth. It’s all down to the systems we have in place and our number one asset… our staff!”

Gary and the rest of the Horizon Renewable Energy team are described to have “carved out a niche in the renewable energy sector in Scotland.” The renewable energy sector is certainly increasing its presence in today’s world with government incentives, such as the Domestic RHI, encouraging homeowners to have renewable energy technologies, from biomass boilers through to solar thermal and heat pumps, installed to heat their properties. Judging by the volume of Spira boilers Horizon Renewable Energy have installed in 2015 to date, this is supporting evidence for the increased popularity of renewable heating systems.

Grant would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Gary, John, David and everyone at Horizon Renewable Energy, Fastest Growth Company 2015, on this excellent achievement! Keep up the sterling work!
