NASHUA, NH — W.H. Bagshaw Company, Inc. was named “Small Business of the Year” by the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce on Thursday June 3rd, 2021. They were nominated by Kristin Hardwick, co-owner of Coworking House in Milford, who provides freelance marketing services for the company.
Other winners that day included “Non-Profit of the Year” winner MicroSociety Academy Charter School; “Community Hero of the Year” winner United Way of Greater Nashua; and two companies received the award for “Business of the Year”: Southern NH Health and St. Joseph’s Hospital.
“I nominated the Bagshaw Company after being completely inspired by how they took care of their staff during the pandemic,” says Hardwick. “As a spouse of an employee, and a fellow business owner, I got to see firsthand the effect of their policies, and how much work went into the efforts made by Bagshaw management. Adria and Aaron are leaders, setting the example for the next generation of business owners in NH.”
