Following the announcement that KC Communications Client Services Director, Laura Batchelor has been shortlisted in the Ambassador of the Year category at the Examiner Business Awards we are delighted to announce two further shortlists for our clients, Sheards Accountancy and Specialist Glass Products.

Sheards Accountancy, Huddersfield’s longest established and innovative accountancy practice has been shortlisted in the SME of the Year Category (up to 20 employees) sponsored by Towndoor. The category looks for businesses who can demonstrate achievements in their marketplace with evidence of excellent business strategy, good financial performance and potential for the future. Sheards shortlist in the EBA’s follows on from them being announced as September’s Eaton Smith Business of the Month winner earlier this week.

The firm has played in a crucial role in supporting their clients in getting to grips with the recent Making Tax Digital implementation and is a platinum partner of accountancy software firm, QuickBooks.

Milnsbridge based Specialist Glass Products (SGP) is a glass manufacturer specialising in bespoke glass requirements and can count Somerset House and London Underground as home to some of their installs. Shortlisted in the Business of the year (50+ employees) category, sponsored by Business Live, it is attributed to a business with more than 50 employees that can demonstrate all-round business excellence, financial performance, business strategy, and future plans.

During the past 36 months, SGP has invested heavily in the business, expanding the factory from 30,000 sq. ft to 70,000 sq. ft and installing equipment allowing them to enhance current products and manufacture entirely new products, some of which SGP are the only supplier of in the UK. To meet the demands of the new expansion, SGP has hired 22 new members of staff, taking the full number of SGP employees to 80, all employed from the local community.

The awards take place on 7th November at John Smiths Stadium, Huddersfield and are hosted by media personality Harry Gration.
