Heat Pumps NOW – Supreme David Award Winners

Heat Pumps NOW – Supreme David Award Winners

Christchurch heat pump installers, Heat Pumps NOW have just been awarded the Supreme David Award, in addition to winning the two categories they were finalists in: Most Outstanding Fledgling Business and Most Community-Minded Business.

For the past eight years, The David Awards have been recognising the unsung heroes in home and small businesses throughout New Zealand – the Kiwi Davids taking on the Goliaths of the New Zealand business landscape.

“We are just so humbled by this result,” says Heat Pumps NOW Director Blair Ashdowne. “We never expected to win both the categories we entered, let alone the top prize. We are blown away by this recognition, and by the feedback we are receiving from our community.”

‘The Most Outstanding Fledgling Business’ recognizing a young or start-up company under two years old that’s smart, quirky, with a truly passionate team. The ‘Most Community-Minded Business’ category highlights a company where community involvement is not what they’re about, but part of how they do their core business. The winners of each category are put forward for the Supreme Award.

Businesses from around New Zealand enter The David Awards, with the total number of entries swelling by 27% in 2015 – on top of about the same amount of growth last year.

“Just entering The David Awards was an opportunity to reflect on what our team has done in our short time as a company, and celebrate many small achievements where we have helped people,” says Blair Ashdowne. “It’s brought our team closer together and reminded me personally why I started this business.”

“To be a finalist was an honour in and of itself. To win Most Outstanding Fledgling Business and Most Community-Minded Business is so humbling. To win the Supreme Award as well… I’m almost at a loss for words.”

Heat Pumps NOW would like to thank the finalists in all the categories for doing their bit to serve the people in their communities, and the judges for their many hours of hard work.
