Middy’s Small Business Awards

Recognising and rewarding the small electrical contractors in our industry.

The inaugural Middy’s Small Business Awards have now concluded and we'd like to thank everyone who applied. There was $30,000 in cash prizes to be won. The winners of the 4 x $5,000 Awards were invited to the Scholarship Awards Presentation Night on November 9 where Ashley Flegg was presented with the $10,000 Nick Middendorp Small Business Award.

Named in honour of the late second generation Middy’s director Nick Middendorp, the awards are designed to help small electrical contractors improve business sustainability and increase the ability to plan, manage and respond effectively to growth. The awards can assist contractors invest in new equipment or infrastructure, or help them enter into new markets. The aim of the awards is to help in whatever way possible to run and grow a small business. This in turn helps stimulate small businesses to accelerate employment and generate more income.

The entry process is straight forward and only takes 20 minutes or so. If you run a small electrical contracting business with up to 5 staff and think you deserve a break we’d like to hear from you in 2019 when we hold the awards for the second time. There are no right or wrong answers, we genuinely and honestly want to hear about your business and what it is about your business that makes it unique, so good luck for next year!
