NEWS - Branded Items Group shortlisted for St Helens Business Awards
Branded Items Group have been shortlisted for St Helens business awards following an assessment of the business by an independent panel. The awards, which are run by St Helens Chamber of Commerce are recognition of outstanding achievements of companies during the previous 12 months. Although BIG was only incorporated in 2017, the chamber were impressed with BIG's use of ecommerce in a test phase of the business. Steve Fairhurst, Managing Director explained.
"We didn't expect to be nominated for the best use of technology award and it has come as a complete surprise to us. Before we incorporated The Branded Items Group, we ran a preliminary online business called Branded Magnets, which focused only on the sales of promotional magnets. We did this to see if we could compete with the other multi-million pound promotional items companies with a narrow band of products. The test phase business, did exceptionally well and it was through our learnings with this business that allowed us to set up BIG and bring in a much larger range of products. I believe we have been shortlisted because of the technology strategy we deployed by successfully using Ecommerce and Adwords"
BIG will be attending the awards on 17th May and are one of three companies shortlisted for the award.
