A& F Pilbeam Construction, based in Southwick, on the West Sussex coast is celebrating not 1, not 2, but 3 award wins!
At the annually held Adur & Worthing Business Awards, attended by almost 400 people on 16th November at the Pavilion Theatre in Worthing, the company was named winner of the Building and Construction category and the Best Medium Business category. This resulted in them being crowned ‘Best Overall Business’ on the night too!
Managing Director of the company, Simon Pilbeam, said, “We were hoping to win the Building & Construction category, but to win both categories that we entered and then be named ‘Best Overall Business’ is beyond anything we could have hoped for.”
“The whole company has worked incredibly hard in the past few years. We live in interesting times and a challenging business climate and so these awards are testament to the dedication, commitment and professionalism of the entire team.”
The Adur & Worthing Business Awards had received record entries this year and the judging panel said they were impressed by Pilbeam’s innovative approach and the passion and drive shown by the company in taking their business forward while still maintaining their heritage. They also liked the way Pilbeam Construction continues to win significant contracts across the area and beyond, saying the company promotes and represents their building and construction sector to an exceptional standard.
A&F Pilbeam was established in 1955 and is still based at its original address in Southwick, West Sussex today. The company also celebrated wins at the Sussex Heritage Awards and Mid Sussex Design Awards earlier this year, and also won the contract to construct the new Lady Bee Enterprise Centre at Shoreham Port, which is now well underway with completion due early next year.
“2018 has been a tough year, and I don’t expect 2019 to be any different,” says Simon Pilbeam. “However, this achievement proves that with the dedicated and professional team that we have, we can achieve our goal of being at the pinnacle of construction in the South East.”
