The event took place at the company’s Castlecary HQ near Glasgow. The award recognised achievements in terms of sustainable business development and the success of ensuring that environmental, social and economic sustainable practices underpin every aspect of the business.

Lord-Lieutenant Michael Gregory OBE said: “It’s been a great pleasure to come to CMS to present the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation today, to a company that has been a tremendous innovator not just in sustainability, but very effectively in providing youth employment.”

Gerald adds: “We’re looking forward to further growth as our customer base seeks to meet ever more demanding energy and CO2 reduction goals.”
