The third annual East Cheshire Chamber of Commerce Business Awards were held at Cranage Hall on Friday 30thMarch 2012.
On a highly successful night 13 prestigious awards were presented (from over 160 entries) to East Cheshire businesses in recognition of their outstanding achievements and commitment to excellence over the past year. There were 16 tables and 260 people at the awards, showing there are plenty of thriving businesses in the region despite the tough economic climate.
County Insurance Consultants Ltd (www.countyins.com), employing 75 staff and with offices in Crewe and Southport, were one of several nominations in the hard fought and prestigious Business of the Year Award.
County Insurance are also responsible for the Insurance4your brand, which operates a website and specialist team for private car insurance, van insurance and home insurance. Insurance4your are also the first team sponsors of Nantwich Town FC.
County Insurance are both delighted and honoured to have come out as the winners for 2012 as the East Cheshire Chamber Business of the Year. This is following on from having won Professional Service Provider of the Year in 2011.
Dave Clapp, MD of County Insurance comments “We are delighted to have won the Business of the Year award against what was some very stiff competition. I know a lot of the other companies that were in our category whom I have great respect for, and I am really chuffed to have been chosen by the panel as winners of Business of the Year.”
Dave continues, “I’d like to publicly thank our staff who are all very dedicated professionals and you don’t win awards like this without having an excellent team of people. We have had nearly eight years of sustained but controlled growth, even in the last few years in recessionary trading conditions which is really pleasing.
The high levels of customer service we provide both our personal and business customers’ means that not only do we enjoy high levels of customer loyalty, but also benefit from word of mouth recommendations.
Customers obviously hope that they never really need their insurance – but it’s vital to provide a superb service when they do, with the foundations of us winning the award of professional service provider last year we went on to have our best year ever in terms of business results so it just shows that the professional service delivered to your customers really does pay.
“We find that providing a first class service on top of competitive pricing is a sound business strategy. In the last few years I believe we have seen a ‘flight to quality’ for important services such as insurance. You need good advice. There is little point in having an insurance policy if it doesn’t cover you for what you believed it should do, which is the danger with internet only companies in this sector
We make sure all staff are fully trained and put many through the professional insurance qualifications. They really do go the extra mile to make sure our customers get the best service and I’m delighted this award recognises this.
My thanks go to our team, all the people that nominated us and to the panel of the East Cheshire Chamber for this award”
Nantwich Town Chairman Jon Gold Said “We are delighted at this success for County Insurance and would like to offer our sincere congratulations, it’s wonderful news for the local area and of course Nantwich Town Football Club. We are extremely proud of the relationship that we have with Dave and his team at County Insurance and their support for the Club over the past two years has been immense and we are pleased to be associated with them and sharing in their success and it is just reward for the hard work that all their team put in and the excellent service that they provide for their customers and we look forward to continuing our relationship both personally and professionally in the future”
