Servicing over 500,000 households from Glasgow to Inverness, Mr Gallacher ahs doubled his staff numbers to over 35 since starting his business in August 2012.
“Having set out to deliver the highest quality service possible three years ago, this award is great recognition of the hard work it’s taken to get the business where it is today,” he said. “It’s been challenging but the results have been outstanding and it’s a real pleasure to celebrate that success.”
Andy Brattesani, head of franchising at HSBC, added: “Consistently high evaluation scores from a business that completes over 25,000 plumbing jobs each year tells you everything about the level of service Noel achieves. He completely changed the culture of the business after he took it on, with impressive emphasis on customer satisfaction, training and development.”
