ABC Depot MD nominated for Young Entrepreneur of the Year award

Published:  19 February, 2015

Prakash Patel, managing director of builders’ merchant ABC Depot, has been nominated for the title of Young Entrepreneur of the Year at the upcoming Asian Voice Political & Public Life Awards.

After acquiring ABC Depot with his brothers, Mr Patel has grown the business from a relatively small merchant into one of North London’s premier providers of building materials, with branches in Finchley, North London and Welham Green, Hertfordshire.

“It’s an honour to even be considered for this prestigious award, let alone be nominated as a finalist,” said Mr Patel. “I have always prided myself on aiming high, and the success of ABC Depot and this nomination are testament to this ethic. Obviously, I wouldn’t have been able to achieve all I have without the support of those around me, and we will be celebrating whatever the outcome is.”

ABC Depot is part of the the Allneeds Group of Companies, along with drywall and insulation distributor Capital Drywall and buying group IBC.

The Asian Voice Political & Public Life Awards are due to take place on 26 February 2015 at the House of Commons.
