An Aberdeenshire start-up company has been nominated for a national award.
Subsea engineering specialist Legasea, based in Echt, is in the running for “disruptor of the year” in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards (GBEAs).
The category is for firms who disturb the status quo through their unique way of doing things.
Ray Milne, operations director for Legasea, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to the GBEA judges for shortlisting us, and acknowledging the incredible efforts of everyone in our team during our business journey so far.”
Mr Milne, 38, added: “The business was created by bringing together the collective knowledge and experience of our friends and former colleagues, and we have had the backing of a range of clients throughout the north-east.”
The regional heats will be take place online on Wednesday September 23.
Keen to share his success story, Mr Milne contacted North-East Now.
The campaign – which is driven by Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce and supported by creative agency Hampton, Aberdeen Journals, Original 106 and VisitAberdeenshire – will share inspirational and positive stories, encouraging people to do what they can to support the local economies in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.
He said: “So many local businesses have suffered as a result of recent events, particularly those in hospitality, retail and the arts, and is it great that people are getting behind them and spreading the word.”
