BUSINESSES in Huddersfield and Brighouse have been shortlisted in a competition to spotlight firms forging ahead despite the recession.
Wellhouse Leisure Ltd, of Shepley; Greensleeves Garden Care Ltd, based in Skelmanthorpe and Brighouse-based roofing company Ploughcroft Ltd are among 13 finalists in Buckin’ the Trend, a competition run by Business Link Yorkshire.
Helen West, chief executive of Business Link, said: “We had 60 entries and the standard was very high. All the entrants are extremely positive and many have used the current economic situation to rethink what they do – and are having their best year ever as a result.”
The shortlisted companies all win tickets for Yorkshire International Business Convention at Harrogate or Bridlington this summer – when four gold award winners and six silver award runners-up will be announced.
They will also receive mentoring from leading business people.
