The winners of the 10th Ayrshire Chamber of Commerce Business Awards have been announced showcasing the region’s best businesses.

The Winners

A record number of over 500 guests attended the awards Dinner at Ayr Race Course on Friday 11th October 2019.


TV and radio stars Jennifer Reoch and Edward Reid hosted the event and Soundsational Community Choir entertained the guests.


David Hughes from Awards Principal Sponsor 1825 said:

“This is our fourth year of sponsoring the event, and once again the quality of applicants within each category is quite outstanding, reflecting the strength in depth of our business community in Ayrshire.


"On behalf of the team at 1825 Financial Planning, we would like to extend our congratulations to all of the winners in each of their respective categories, and thanks again to Ayrshire Chamber of Commerce for the great job they do in supporting business enterprise in Ayrshire.”


Val Russell, Chief Executive at Ayrshire Chamber of Commerce, said:

“My congratulations to all the winners at this years’ Ayrshire Business Awards, what a thoroughly great night it was. Chatting with the judging panel it was obvious just how difficult a job they had in selecting a winner from each category due to the extremely high standard of entries.


"I’d like to thank all of the judges for giving up their valuable time. Thanks also to our sponsors for their continued support in making the Awards the continued success it is.”
