Small New Zealand business turns up the heat

(PR.co.nz) A small Christchurch business which installs heat pumps is this year’s Supreme Winner in The David Awards: heroes in small business.

Heat Pumps NOW not only won the Supreme Award, but also took out the Most Outstanding Fledgling Business category and the Most Community-Minded Business categories.

Speaking on behalf of the judges, Pam Martin calls Heat Pumps NOW “a true David business”. “Heat Pumps Now began with a vision to make a difference for people in Christchurch who needed heating,” she says. “They provide a personal and reliable service to residents worn out from fighting to be heard by large organisations. Their excellent customer service has ensured their growth through word of mouth and referrals. They also contribute to their community in practical and measureable ways. They are succeeding where larger companies in their area have failed.”

“To be a finalist was an honour in and of itself,” says Heat Pumps NOW Director Blair Ashdowne. “To win Most Outstanding Fledgling Business and Most Community-Minded Business is so humbling. To win the Supreme Award as well… I’m almost at a loss for words.”

Blair recommends going through the award process. “Just entering The David Awards was an opportunity to reflect on what our team has done in our short time as a company, and celebrate many small achievements where we have helped people,” he adds. “It’s brought our team closer together and reminded me personally why I started this business.”

For the past eight years, The David Awards have been recognising the unsung heroes in home and small businesses throughout New Zealand – the Kiwi Davids taking on the Goliaths of the New Zealand business landscape.
