Bradford based Power Sheds has been shortlisted for three national awards in its first year of trading. Power Sheds was set up in 2019 by entrepreneurs Jack Sutcliffe and Simon Hobson. They are now manufacturing more than 1,000 wooden sheds a month to customers all over the UK, making timber garden sheds, bike sheds and potting sheds.
The pair are finalists for three awards; SME National Business Awards for ‘Best New Business’, Lloyds Bank National Business Awards for ‘Best New Business’ and Great British Entrepreneur Award for ‘Disruptor of the Year’.
Jack Sutcliffe, CEO of Power Sheds, said “We are enormously proud to have reached the finals of the three biggest business awards in the UK, which represents the culmination of our hard work and dedication over the last eighteen months.
“This has been a fantastic opportunity to put ourselves to the test against not just our competitors, but against the entire UK business community. The feedback we have received during the rigorous judging process has been useful to understand where we are as a business and in what areas we can improve.”
Previous winners of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards include fitness sensation Joe Wicks, Timpson CEO James Timpson OBE, DPD UK, Hotel Chocolat, Dragon’s Den entrepreneur Sara Davies MBE and online fast fashion success story Missguided.
“When it comes to business recognition, the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards are the ones to win. They allow any successful organisation to tell their story, from large private and public companies, to thriving entrepreneurial businesses, promising start-ups and established SMEs,” said Sarah Austin, Awards Director.
“Winning a Lloyds Bank National Business Award comes with significant business benefits, including increased brand awareness and reputation among customers and partners, valuable insight into best practice and employee recognition and retention.”
