A Connel-based business has been recognised as one of the best small contractors in Scotland.

Kenneth Ferguson Electrical and his team of 10 were highly commended in the category at the Select Industry Awards two weeks ago.

The Oban electricians had been shortlisted for Best Small Contractor and Best Delivery of Customer Service in the Select awards.

‘At the end of the day, it’s nice to be recognised,’ Kenny said. ‘It was a great night at the awards – just to be invited was a great experience.

‘It’s nice to be recognised in the industry – we are a small organisation, delivering to a local customer base. We employ local people and we bring on apprentices.

‘We are very proud of that and it’s a good achievement for the boys. It’s them who are out there doing the work.

‘So it’s nice to get a bit of recognition for the workforce, and the office staff, who do the day to day running of it.’

Kenny and his team, which includes three apprentices, work all over Argyll, covering a 50-mile radius of Connel.

Kenny has been in business since 2006, when he started the company on his own.
