Bizzi Growin reaches finals at this year’s BIBAs

Euxton-based, Bizzi Growin has reached the finals in both categories they entered at this year’s BIBAs (Be Inspired Business Awards).

The BIBAs run by the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce are considered the most coveted of awards to win amongst the business community.

Beating off competition from hundreds of initial applicants in each category alone, the firm now takes their place alongside seven fellow finalists in the Best Micro Business and Best Creative Business awards.

With the overall winners yet to be decided, the process is not over yet for the team at Bizzi Growin who now face the panel once more as part of the Judges on Tour round, which was introduced last year.

Cathy Bolton, the Head of Sales at Bizzi Growin, said: “To have reached the finals of the BIBAs in both categories we entered is the icing on the cake for what has already been a fantastic year for Bizzi Growin."

Becky Rowlands, the Head of Product development added: "This is the first time we have entered a business awards and so we are thrilled to reach the final round and can't wait to welcome the judges to the office and showroom we have on site. The journey is tough but it forces you to really put yourself and the business under the microscope and as part of the process has actually also helped steer our plans for future growth and development."

Peter Kiely of property investment firm Harewood Associates which is sponsoring the ceremony's reception, said: "The quality of businesses and individuals which make up the shortlists for the BIBAs categories speaks volumes for the talent we have in Lancashire. The BIBAs has long been known as the one they all want to win and the finalists bidding to win a trophy in 2015 only serve to raise the bar even higher."

Bizzi Growin is a supplier of high quality, best-selling bedding and soft furnishings for children's home nurseries with ranges that include quilts, cot bumpers, blankets, cot mobiles, moses baskets, soft toys, sleeping bags and rugs. As lead suppliers into high street retailers including Babies R Us and Mothercare, Bizzi Growin is hopeful of impressing the judges in the next stage.

More than 1,000 top businesses across Lancashire entered The BIBAs and the celebrated finalists will be attending the prize giving awards ceremony on 11 September at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom.
