Newbridge-based Specialist Façade Inspections Ltd (SFI) has won Family Business of the Year at the South Wales Argus Business Awards 2022.

The cladding consultancy is a family business founded in 2019 by father and son duo Paul and Josh Tedstone and the consultancy provides full cladding fire testing and inspection services including external wall fire reviews to determine compliance with building safety regulations.

The awards ceremony took place last night at the University of South Wales’ Newport City Campus, where they honoured some of the best companies and businesspeople that Gwent has to offer. Hosted by broadcaster Mai Davies, the ceremony featured 14 award categories including Family Business of the Year and Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

SFI were presented with their award by Harding Evans Solicitors.

Josh Tedstone, Director at SFI, said: “We’re very proud and excited to have been awarded Family Business of the Year in the South Wales Argus Business Awards. After a tough few years of trading, we’re happy to be celebrating reaching our three year anniversary and this is the cherry on top of the cake.

“We are a local, family business that works to support local causes and our community wherever possible, so it’s great to receive recognition in our local business awards.”
