Huddersfield-based house developer clinches Business of the Month award

A Huddersfield-based house developer has been announced as the latest winner of Eaton Smith’s prestigious Business of the Month award.

The accolade was presented to SB Homes’ sales and marketing managers Sophie and Amy Byram by Mike Webb, the firm’s head of dispute resolution and employment, earlier this month.

Aiming to recognise some of the region’s best and most successful companies within their fields, the awards have been running since 1995.

SB Homes has been designing and developing bespoke new houses throughout the Colne Valley in Huddersfield for over 20 years. The firm’s current development is Empire Works — a mixture of 70 two, three and four-bedroomed homes in Slaithwaite, Huddersfield.

Deborah Melluish, partner at Eaton Smith and member of the judging panel said; “SB Homes submitted a very impressive application which clearly demonstrated their passion for not only their business, but also for the community in which they operate.

“Furthermore, they have developed an intelligent business strategy which meant they were able to continue operating during the downturn in the housing market. The judging panel therefore felt that SB Homes was a worthy winner of the Business of the Month award.”

Stephen Byram, managing director of SB Homes commented: “We were delighted to have been chosen as Eaton Smith’s Business of the Month. As a company, we’re committed to the areas that we develop in, and take a lot of care to create bespoke properties that have soul and character.

“We’re therefore really proud to be recognised for this different approach!”

All Business of the Month winners are entered into the Business of the Year award which will take place in July 2018.
