A Hat trick of Red Rose Awards

UPS Building triumphed at Lancashire Business View’s Red Rose Awards, winning a hatrick of awards in Customer Service, Property and Construction categories.

Businesses from the length and breadth of the county vied for titles across a range of categories, with only the best of the best, as selected by a panel of expert judges, progressing through to the shortlist and a rigorous interview stage before being rewarded for their excellence.

Here’s what the judges said about us:


Customer Service Award:

Very passionate about customer service which came across and proved to be successful in delivering outstanding results for two different customers in a difficult industry.


Construction Business:

The judges were very impressed by the passion, humility and progressive approach of this growing construction business. Their concern for the specific needs of the end users of their projects is recognised by their clients and beneficiaries alike and this building their reputation across the north west.


Their core principles of ‘best quality’ and ‘customer first’ have led the rapid transformation of the business from subcontractor to a successful main contractor.


This is an authentic Lancashire business, demonstrating commitment to local recruitment and training, buying locally and supporting local community causes. The strong ‘team’ ethos of the business is evident in everything they do.


Property Business:

The entries for this category were not only  strong but also  from a wide variety of disciplines, as such the winner of this award needed to have a USP to  wow the judges.


UPS certainly demonstrated this with their indisputable passion for not only  what  they do in business but also how they  do it.


UPS  Building & Maintenance clearly have a tenacious vision of how they will continue to achieve their goals of servicing their customers to the highest of standards, succeeding  in winning new business tenders and in training and retaining their staff.


The strongest message that came across from UPS is their passion for what  they do and their ultimate core value in making their business a fantastic place to work.


Event founder Richard Slater, also the publisher of Lancashire Business View magazine, said: “The Red Rose Awards are the biggest awards event to celebrate business in Lancashire. The Awards are very hotly contested, so UPS Building should be very proud that they have seen off all the competition.”


As award winners, UPS collected three trophies specially crafted by apprentices at Darwen-based WEC Engineering.

BBC Radio Lancashire and North West Tonight host Graham Liver compered the evening, with entertainment from Gravity Live, Darwen bane Pancake and Stax of Soul.

The charity partner for Red Rose Awards 2018 is Cash for Kids and funds were raised at the awards event to support their work in Lancashire.
