The British Pest Management Awards (BPMA) shortlist has been announced and Norfolk based Abate Pest Management Services has been shortlisted as Small Company of the Year.
Jon Blake, Managing Director of Abate said “We are delighted to hear the news that we have been shortlisted for a UK award. We have certainly come a long way in 20 years and the whole Abate team are very proud of this achievement. The goal now is to grow to reach the levels of Large Company of the Year and following our recent CEPA European certification and franchising plans, I cannot see anything stopping us.”
The awards ceremony will take place at PestEx, London ExCeL taking place on March 20th/21st. PestEx is the UK’s trade exhibition and conference for the pest control industry. It’s the largest get together for the pest management sector in the UK. This year Abate will be exhibiting at PestEx showcasing their franchising business, where Abate is setting up a UK Pest Management network.
Kevin Higgins of the BPCA and Chair of the BPMA judging panel said “Congratulations to all the shortlisted companies and individuals. It really was a mammoth task going through so many applications and narrowing down to this short list. Just getting this far through the process is an achievement, so I hope you’ll all celebrate your achievement. With significantly more nominations, plus the new awards – the independent judging panel had their work cut out for them.”
