Award-Winning Family Business of the Year!
Spitfire Scaffolding scoop the award for Family Business of the Year 2016, as hosted by the Bedfordshire on Sunday!
It was the first business awards organised by the Bedfordshire on Sunday newspaper and also the first business award won by Spitfire Scaffolding. The companies entry was judged by a panel of business experts and the level of competition for the category “Family Business of the Year” was high. Judges commented on ‘the grit and determination to make the business work as a family’ while also recognising the impressive growth achieved over the last five years.
Three Corbett brothers from Putnoe (Bedford), including Owner and Director, Nigel, set up the business in 2009. The intention was to create a beacon scaffolding business and to independently provide comfortable lives for the families associated with the company. Spitfire has gone from strength to strength since then and although the workforce now includes some non-family members those original values live on and provide the whole business with a solid foundation.
Once again Nigel extends a huge thanks to the whole crew and the clients, may this award be the first of many!
