Essential won three prestigious awards on Wednesday, May 8 at the SME Luton and Bedfordshire Business Awards.
The branded clothing supplier was the big winner of the evening scooping the titles of Dunstable Business of the Year, Business of the Year: Over 50 Employees and Overall Business of the Year 2019 for the county.
Essential will now go on to compete at the SME National Business Awards at Wembley Stadium on Friday, December 6, representing Luton and Bedfordshire in Business of the Year (More than 50 employees).
George Georgiou, Essential’s managing director, said: “It is an honour to be recognised at the SME Luton and Bedfordshire Business Awards and we thank all our clients who have supported us over the years. We pride ourselves on being a leader in our industry; and giving the best possible service to our clients. It is wonderful for the Essential team to be acknowledged for their outstanding effort across all areas of the business. Thank you to the judges and sponsors for voting for us. We are over the moon to be a finalist at the SME National Awards at Wembley in December and very much look forward to the ceremony.”
Louis Georgiou, Essential’s marketing manager, said: “We are absolutely thrilled, overwhelmed to win all three and the overall winner. Proud is an understatement. It really is a testament to everyone that works with us every single day, who come in and put effort into what we produce and without them we could not have done it. Essential is a family business, it all started with our dad and a single embroidery machine in 1998, so to be where we are today is really big.”
