Keela Achieves Further Success with Family Business Award Win
Fife-based outdoor clothing manufacturer Keela celebrates another award win by claiming the People’s Choice Award for Scotland in the 2022 Family Business of the Year Awards, in a recognition of the work carried out by the brand over the last 12 months.
The news comes after a standout year for Keela, which saw the brand receive numerous awards in the form of an Early Day Motion for its outstanding work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, a Certificate of Recognition for the ‘Exceptional Medium/Large Business Award’, as well as an ‘Outstanding Business Award’.
Created in 2012, The Family Business of the Year Awards aim to celebrate the UK family business sector, recognising the diversity of family firms across up and down the country and celebrating their contribution.
Speaking on the win, Keela Sales Director, Sam Fernando, commented: “It fills me with huge pride for our business to claim this prestigious award. It is a further indication of all the hard work carried out by everyone at Keela over the last year, as we look to push the boundaries of outdoor gear design further. We continue to work hard to create cutting-edge concepts while demonstrating our core beliefs of being innovative, ethical, and sustainable.”
Keela has been pushing the boundaries of outdoor gear and textile design for 40 years. The first Keela kit was tested by local mountain rescue teams, and today emergency services and rescue teams still rely on Keela garments. Keela is worn the world over by adventurers, expedition leaders and outdoor enthusiasts
