SDS has been named Small to Medium Sized Business of the Year in the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards, highlighting the company’s industry leadership, innovation and outstanding business performance.

SDS’s Managing Director Patrick Cullen accepted the award from BBC TV’s Naga Munchetty at a prestigious ceremony held at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on Tuesday evening (14th November), headlined by Sir Mo Farah.

The SME award, which received a record number of entries this year, recognises the outstanding business growth that has established SDS as a UK leader in sustainable drainage and stormwater treatment systems. The judges paid tribute to SDS’s innovation and commitment to developing more sustainable approaches to reliable water management.

Gareth Oakley, Managing Director, SME Banking at Lloyds Banking Group, said: “SDS has grown over its 20 year history to become the UK’s leader in sustainable drainage systems. More recently, to meet the increasing importance of water quality, they have diversified to include new water treatment systems. They impressed the panel with their drive for innovative new engineering solutions and focus on delivering the best value for their clients. And it’s this principle that has both attracted new clients and contributed to the extremely high level of loyalty they enjoy.
