The #BAwards2015 Review

On Thursday November 19th 2015 BA Components crowned their 25th incredible year in business with a glorious celebration. A day to go down in KBB history; with over 300 staff, suppliers, customers, family and guests attending a black tie gala awards night at the Glenavon House Hotel in Cookstown.

The statistics were impressive; 332 attendees, a 6-piece band, 1000 plates of food, 11 awards and 6 block-booked hotels made for an unforgettable evening. BA Cookstown staff were joined by colleagues from the Doncaster factory, suppliers from as far away as Japan and customers from over 23 countries serviced by BA. The evening followed a red carpet tour of the Cookstown factory, led by business owners Brian and Kieran McCracken; and was filled with reminiscing on times past, inspiration for the future, and plenty of laughs in between.

The awards winners were as follows:

Best Bathroom: Wittering West Ltd

Best Bedroom: Drawers N Doors
