28 Jul 2015 by Robina Moss

Frames company Eyespace has been shortlisted for a new business of the year accolade at the Lloyds Bank national business awards.

Finalists for the 2015 awards were chosen from hundreds of businesses across 18 award categories. 

A range of industries are represented in the shortlist for this year’s business awards, with companies from recruitment and children’s clothing, to pet food and online marketing being selected. 

The scale of the finalists is just as varied, with companies turning over less than a million pounds to over £25m and employing 20 staff to over 70,000 people.

At its launch, Eyespace delivered six designer-driven collections comprising 420 frames. The company continues to “far exceed” its key performance indicators for sales, marketing and distribution.

Eyespace managing director, Julie Abel, said: “To be recognised by such an esteemed awards panel as one of the UK’s most promising young businesses is an incredible accomplishment for us all at Eyespace.” 

Ms Abel added: “We are extremely proud to be shortlisted. You only have to look at the class of past winners to know that this acknowledgment will intuitively assure our industry that we have invested in quality and an effective business solution that puts primary importance on best-servicing our customers. 

“Knowing we are standing head-and-shoulders with some of our country’s most recognised and admired brands from all corners of the business world has bolstered our vision for the future and gives us confidence to invest still further.” 

Going up against other finalists, Eyespace will compete for the prestigious award, with the winner being revealed at a gala dinner ceremony at Park Lane’s Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 10 November. 

Previous award winners include Ikea, Tangle Teezer, Hermes, Trunki, Joseph Joseph and Ella’s Kitchen. 

Programme director of the National Business Awards, Tom Broughton, said: “The quality and range of this year’s entries exceed even those of last year, which is no mean feat. We are now looking forward to the next step in the judging process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
