A Blackridge-based company which specialises in construction and plant training services has been named as the best business at this year’s West Lothian Business Awards.
Founded in 1973, Sibbalds Ltd provides training for a range of industries sectors including construction, civil engineering, utilities, local authorities, emergency services, warehousing and distribution. The company has invested in establishing a centrally located state of the art training facility to enhance its service offering to its local and national customer base.
Sibbalds commitment to customer service was demonstrated through its increase in business across a numbers of areas including CPC driver training programme which saw a 400 per cent increase in numbers compared to last year. In 2012 the company was awarded the prestigious contract to deliver all the training for the new Queensferry Crossing, an achievement based largely on their previous 15 years of quality performance in the industry and their longstanding record of delivering a professional service.
The company won the Best Business category, sponsored by commercial law firm Davidson Chalmers, at last week’s West Lothian Business Awards. Commenting on Sibbald’s achievement, Davidson Chalmers partner Dawn Dickson said: “It’s great to see an established business celebrating its 40th year taking this accolade. Sibbald is an example of how hard work, innovation and investment can lead to real success. The company has thrived through its strong relationships with organisations such as Skills Development Scotland, West Lothian Council and Scottish Enterprise, with whom they’ve developed close working partnerships by delivering great training opportunities.”
Moving forward Sibbald will continue to invest in its own people, maintain and grow strong relationships with customers and partners and focus on remaining a market leader in their field.
