A LOCHGELLY firm has won a Builders' Merchants Award for the Best Hard Landscaping display in the UK.

Cartmore Building Supplies picked up the prize at a ceremony held in the Park Plaza Hotel in London.

The firm, which moved to new premises at Lochview Industrial Estate at The Avenue in May 2021, invited former Prime Minister Gordon Brown to officially open the landscaping display in May of this year.

It spans more than 1,000 square metres and serves as inspiration and a source of ideas for the public and construction sector, for jobs large and small.

Gordon Banks, director of Cartmore, said: “This is really good news for everyone at Cartmore and all the businesses who supported us in this important venture.

"A big thank you must go to Gregor Ramsay of Paveco Ltd and Lee Ramsay Paving who worked closely with Cartmore in the design and installation of the display.

"Likewise, the support we have received from Tobermore and Digby Stone cannot go unrecognised.

"We are proud that all our efforts have been recognised with this award and that Fife and indeed Scotland can now be recognised as being the best in this category, seeing off stiff competition from the whole of the UK."

The Builders Merchants Awards is an annual event to recognise the elite performers in the sector. This year it was hosted by comedian Jason Manford.

Mr Banks added: "We must keep developing, innovating and moving forward in this industry as its really competitive and I hope this is just the start of Cartmore receiving national recognition for our work.”
