The Natural Paving team celebrates its win.

The ‘Natural’ way wins

Published:  04 June, 2012

SANDTOFT: Natural Paving Products (NPP) scooped ‘The ABP Business Growth Award’ at The Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce – Northern Lincolnshire Business Awards 2012.

The NPP team beat four other nominated businesses to the award on the night for demonstrating significant growth since the company was established in 2005, then employing just two people.

The paving company has since grown a staggering 2837% and now employs more than 20 people. Having made its presence felt in the domestic landscape and driveway market, NPP can now compete with larger national groups and aims to import 2000 containers of product this year.

Paul Shephard, operations director said: “The whole team is over the moon with the award win, which demonstrates the high quality products we offer to suit every project and budget, also the determination and hard work of our staff.”

The judges at the awards event, held in the Grimsby auditorium, said that NPP was the stand out choice and winner of the evening, championing business in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
