Crown Paints has been shortlisted for the The Grichan Partnerships Sustainable Business Award in the 2015 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. Going up against other finalists, Crown Paints will compete for the prestigious award, with the winner being revealed at the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards gala dinner held on 10 November at Park Lane’s Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
The company, which has been manufacturing paint in the UK for more than 200 years, has more than 1,250 employees. It has its headquarters in Darwen, Lancashire and a further manufacturing site in Hull, as well as a network of more than 130 Crown Decorating Centres operating across the UK and Ireland.
An all encompassing range of industries are represented in the shortlists for this year’s awards, with companies from recruitment and children’s clothing, to pet food and online marketing being selected for the chance to win a coveted Lloyds Bank National Business Award. The scale of the finalists is just as varied, with companies turning over less than a million pounds to over £25 million, employing 20 people or over 70,000 people.
Joe Devitt, Chief Executive of Crown Paints, said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for this prestigious award. "We feel it’s a great achievement, which recognises the importance we, as a team, place on sustainability across the entire business.”
