Scottish Gael Force Group has been awarded the accolade of Outstanding Performing Business (25+ employees).
The 2017 Highland Business Awards aims to recognise the achievements of companies and individuals across the whole Scottish region.
The jury awarded Gael Force for its strong showing this year, including a growth in turnover in excess of 30 percent, the recruitment of over 50 new employees, the successful launch of the SeaFeed Offshore Feeding System and the confirmation of their biggest ever single order for feed barges. The success of this year follows a period of management and corporate organizational change in 2016, which has led to a re-focusing of strategy and an almost immediate improvement in business activities.
Collecting the award on behalf of the Gael Force team at the award ceremony in Inverness, was owner and MD Stewart Graham.
“This is a fantastic acknowledgment and appreciation of the hard work and commitment by everyone at Gael Force, which is delivering phenomenal success to all our stakeholders. Our highly accomplished and committed team are a great credit to us, and we are very proud to serve the many customers we deal with on a day-to-day basis, without which we could not have won this award,” he said.
Graham also congratulated Marine Harvest Scotland for winning a trio of awards.
“It is very satisfying to see representations from the Scottish Aquaculture industry, being recognized for the social and economic contribution the industry is making to the Highlands and Islands and the wider Scottish economy.”
