Anderson Maguire Funeral Directors has won The Herald’s Family Business of The Year Award (small – medium) 2016. The Awards were celebrated at Glasgow’s Grand Central Hotel by more than 300 members of Scotland’s business community.
The Herald Scottish Family Business Awards in association with Business Gateway recognise and reward family businesses of all sizes and all sectors in Scotland.
Dom Maguire, chairman of Anderson Maguire, commented: “We are truly humbled and delighted to have won Family Business of The Year in The Herald Family Business Awards.
“We continually invest in our people, premises and facilities to ensure that we provide the best possible service. The core value of every decision we make is for the betterment of the families in our care and this award underpins our standards of professionalism.
“The evening was fantastic recognition for family businesses’ in Scotland and The Herald’s continued support of the sector has positively grown awareness of how much we collectively contribute to the Scottish economy. I would also like to extend our congratulations to all the very worthy finalists and wish them every future success.
“This past 12 months has been incredibly rewarding for all the team. One of our funeral directors has become one of only a number of Approved NAFD (National Association of Funeral Directors) Trainers in Scotland and we are on track to have all our staff NAFD certified within the next few years. We also provide NAFD courses in Funeral Arranging and Funeral Directing to the funeral profession in Scotland.
“We are also very proactive in our Corporate Social Responsibility programme and The Anderson Maguire Foundation has been instrumental in helping numerous community programmes come to fruition in the last 12 months.
“We are very conscious, as a service provider, that it is the communities in which we work who come to us at their hour of need and we are delighted to be able to reciprocate when possible.”
Now in their fifth year the awards will continue to celebrate the success of the diverse, dynamic and innovative family business sector, and the contribution which family firms make to the communities in which they operate and to the wider economy.
