Glencar Construction have been crowned B2B Business of the Year at the 2018 Startups Awards at a prestigious awards ceremony hosted by Oli Barrett MBE at the Royal Garden Hotel, London.

Running since 2004, the Startups Awards has an eye for entrepreneurial talent and, year after year, has successfully identified the country’s most ambitious, game-changing and exciting new businesses – many having gone on to become established brands and fast-growth companies.

The judges were impressed with Glencar founders Eddie McGillycuddy and Chris Gleave’s clear vision for the business as well as their impressive growth rate since they started trading in 2016, commenting: “the business is set apart by its uniquely client-focused delivery. Unlike other firms, Glencar takes a consultative approach: engaging fully from start to finish, continuously communicating with clients, and seeking feedback from everyone involved throughout.”

“The Startups Awards attracted entries from some of the most exciting new businesses in the UK and we are delighted to have been recognised in such a strong field” commented Glencar managing director Eddie McGillycuddy. “This rounds off a great year for Glencar, with some exciting new wins and fantastic projects under our belts and we’re looking forward to continuing to build on this success.”

Glencar were also shortlisted in the Best Place to Work category.

Open to early-stage businesses that are privately owned, UK-based and launched since August 2014, the Startups Awards is backed by headline sponsor The Start Up Loans Company, alongside sponsors AXA Business Insurance, haysmacintyre, GoDaddy, and Oracle NetSuite.
