Fews have been rewarded for their resilience through the pandemic period by beating an impressive field of nominations to grab the Events Production Awards 2022 “Best Temporary Structure Provider”.
The Hanbury-based firm came out of the various lockdowns fast by providing a series of fabulous structures to the Aston Martin Formula One Team, The Edinburgh International Festival and The Football Association with the press centre at St Georges Park.
The judges highlighted Fews’ significant investment in sustainable technologies such as biomass and solar, and their commitment to a net zero future across the supply chain as one of the key factors in their deliberations.
While significant diversification into other markets such as the film industry and supplying temporary buildings to the NHS, logistics, construction, and education sectors have provided considerable impetus the business, events remain crucial to the future growth strategy.
Managing Director, Ian Few commented, “It’s always a wonderful feeling to win an award, and when it has the industry kudos of the Event Production Awards, the feeling is just extra special.
“But it’s important to understand that behind this win is a dedicated, motivated team who took on the many challenges thrown our way over the past couple of years, and this award is credit to them.
“I always enjoy going to work because I’m surrounded by enthusiastic, fun people with a can-do attitude. We all have a passion for the industry we’re in, and love to create great spaces with the structures we build.”
Formerly known as Fews Marquees, Fews rebranded during the lockdown to reflect the wider range of products being offered and to present a more coherent identity to new and existing markets. Going forward the new identities such as Fews Event Structures, Fews Luxury Weddings, Fews Film Marquees and Fews Temporary Buildings will be used in each of the market sectors under the umbrella of the Fews brand.
