Lawsons and Owen Gallagher – a cut above the rest

Owen Gallagher

DENBIGH man, Owen Gallagher hasn’t been pulling punches in his quest to become the very best in his field and, with the help of Lawson Civil Engineering and Utilities, he’s well on his way.

Owen, a scaffolder by trade, is currently both Welsh and British BBU Cruiserweight Champion and has successfully defended his British title twice since we have been associated with him. The BBU (British Boxing Union) is a semi-professional circuit and Owen travels around the UK to shows so our sponsorship is essential to him. Owen’s popularity resulted in his Cruiserweight fight at Denbigh Town Hall  being a sell-out. This was the first show of its kind to be held at the Town Hall for 20 years and his overwhelming win was much appreciated by his army of fans. Owen has also boxed at other local venues as well as at prestigious venues in Birmingham, Liverpool, Glasgow and Stourbridge and, most recently, London.

These are exciting times for Owen who is  based at Elite Pro Boxing Club in Prestatyn which is run by his trainer, Stevo Green. With his past successes and recent form. Owen Gallagher’s name is certainly one they won’t be calling time on for a good few years yet.

Lawson Civil Engineering and Utilities Ltd wins Gold

Lawson IIP Gold Presentation 060

At a glittering awards ceremony attended by the Secretary of State for Wales and surrounded by local dignitaries, family, friends and colleagues, Frank Lawson Snr proudly received the Investors in People Gold Award earlier this year. The standard is the benchmark of good people management practice. Lawson is the first construction company in North Wales to have been awarded the Gold standard and one of only two in the whole country.

Strategic Director, Amanda Lawson-Stoner, said:   “We’re a family run company that employs a team of over 40 people, including 7 members of the Lawson clan. As a result of working with IIP, we identified areas which we felt were important to improve on. We’re such a tight-knit group that every employee feels like family, and we wanted to make sure that all our people – family or otherwise – are aware of, and appreciate what we’re doing and where we’re headed as a company.”
