Blairgowrie Firm win double at Top UK Industry Awards - Perthshire Chamber of Commerce

Blairgowrie Firm win double at Top UK Industry Awards

PERTHSHIRE-based Graham Pest Control celebrated double success at a black-tie industry awards ceremony held at the House of Commons in London. 

The Blairgowrie family firm spearheaded by brothers Ross and Stuart Graham was hailed the Syngenta 2021 UK Pest Business of the Year in the inaugural National Pest Awards. 

The long-time members of Perthshire Chamber of Commerce also captured the Large Company of the Year accolade. 

The event, staged by Pest magazine and backed by several leading industry organisations, showcased the best of British in the fast-expanding pest control sector. 

Ross Graham, a past president of Perthshire Chamber of Commerce, was thrilled with the twin awards. 

“The business was started by our late father Jimmy and mum Anna back in 1993 and he’d have been more proud than anyone to see it receiving these national awards,” he said. 

“He’d have said it wasn’t bad going for a wee Blairgowrie business, even if we are now the largest independent pest control firm in Scotland. 

“We’d like to thank all our staff and many customers for their part in the development of the company, especially those who have been with us for much of the journey and who stood by us during the pandemic and the challenges posed by lockdown.” 

Graham Pest Control employs 65 members of staff at their Blairgowrie headquarters and satellite bases in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness, with the Graham Environmental Services Group workforce nudging towards 100. 

Clients include local authorities, leading hotels and golf clubs and top flight football clubs, including St Johnstone and Dundee United.
