Barnsley’s Civil Engineering and Building Contractors, Palmer Construction took the top prize at this year’s Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards event.

The company triumphed over the competition and walked away with the Roy Hatfield Business of the Year trophy in front of over 500 guests at the Barnsley Metrodome.

The achievement followed Director Simon Dennis’s earlier success in the Building Product Solutions Business Person of the Year Award.

The evening’s other individual award went to Thomas Bagely from Ardagh Group who was named the Barnsley College Apprentice of the Year.

This year’s ceremony, hosted by Look North Presenter Clare Frisby, was again held in Barnsley at the Metrodome following the overwhelming success of the 2014 event in this venue.

Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive, Andrew Denniff said; “Once again a superb evening, reflecting all that is best in South Yorkshire business.  My congratulations go to all our winners and especially Simon Dennis and everyone at Palmer Construction, the Business of the Year.

“500 guests can certainly say that they were part of the “evening of the year” in the Barnsley and Rotherham business calendar and all our nominated entrants can congratulate themselves in contributing to another successful event at the Metrodome”.

This year also saw the Chamber present their Charity of the Year award to Rotherham based charity Safe@Last, who received £3000 in prize money, supported by DuoCall Communications.
