The cream of Dorset’s business achievements met at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) for the Dorset Business Awards 2018 Gala Dinner on Thursday 1st November 2018. During a glittering ceremony in front of an audience of 700 guests, the success stories of 39 companies from across the region were honoured in 13 award categories.

Enhanced were delighted to be one of the sponsors and to introduce a new award for 2018, The ScaleUp Award, aimed very much at growing businesses. The competition was tough but eventually, three companies were shortlisted; Beyond Retail (UK)DJS (UK) Ltd and Unicorn Training Group.

Elliot Lees- Bell, Managing Director at Beyond Retail, was ecstatic when Simon White announced them as winners.

Beyond Retail began life in 2011 selling bathroom and kitchen taps online. Fast-forward to now, over 2 million people visit their 3 online retail brands each year.

Based at Aviation Business Park, they now offer over 20,000 items from 50 manufacturers and brands across bathrooms, kitchens, heating and lighting. A growing portfolio of own-brand products allows them to cater for the cost-conscious customer. Beyond Retail’s team has grown substantially, however it has always retained a healthy mix of traditional showroom retail experience to underpin their forward-thinking and data-driven mindset.

Enhanced were looking for a company who had achieved considerable and consistent growth over a three-year period with clear targets and plans for future growth. Beyond Retail certainly met this criteria.

Enhanced would like to congratulate all the winners and shortlisted finalists of this year’s awards.
