Rilmac Scaffolding Highly Commended at Business Awards


Lincolnshire based Rilmac Scaffolding have been Highly Commended in the Fastest Growing Business category at the annual Midlands Family Business Awards.

The announcement was made during the gala awards ceremony at the Derby Velodrome on Thursday 9th November. The Rilmac Group (comprising of Insulation, Asbestos Services, Fabrication and Scaffolding divisions) were also shortlisted to be a finalist in the prestigious Family Business of the Year Award.

Paul Walker, Group Chairman and, second generation family member said, “there is a lot of hard work in putting together applications, creating suitable presentations, and preparing for the challenging interviews.  Whilst only a smaller team was responsible for the award entry, it is the effort and dedication of everyone at Rilmac Scaffolding that has been rewarded with the Highly Commended recognition.”

Steve Baxter, Group MD, added. “This is a team endeavor and every employee at Rilmac Scaffolding has played a part in achieving this success.  Thank you to everyone for their positive involvement.  It is wonderful to see everyone’s hard work recognised in this way.”

“As a Lincolnshire based business it was great to see how many fellow companies from the county had also been shortlisted this year.  The event further outlined  how successful and buoyant the Family Business community is across the Midlands. Every entry was of a very high standard and there were some fantastic business success stories told.”

The Awards were expertly managed by The Wilson Group and included shortlisted finalists from as far afield as Worcester and Skegness.
