The British Chamber Business Awards, now in its 18th year, is a prestigious event in the calendar of businesses and organisations nationwide. The awards highlight the exceptional growth and advancement of UK businesses through a series of regional and national heats.

A new category for 2022, the Rapid Riser Award, credits the achievements of an outstanding ‘Scale up Business of the Year’ that has demonstrated exceptional levels of growth with a strong plan for sustainable financial performance.

Castle Water impressed the judges, having launched as a start-up in 2014 and evolving to a 400 employee, £360M (2020/21) turn-over business in just 8 years, with 5 industry-shaping acquisitions along the way. The water retailer will now proceed to the National finals in the Chamber Business Awards.
