On the Tools Awards - Supporting tradespeople through challenging times

05 December 2023

Trade Direct Insurance proudly sponsored the On the Tools Special Recognition Award 2023, won by Scott Reid the owner of Glagow-based Stratum Masonry, a stonemasonry company specialising in working with traditional buildings throughout Scotland. Stratum Masonry was founded by Scott Reid, whose family has been involved within the Stonemasonry industry for generations.

Scott was recognised for his company’s work in preserving the rich history and heritage of the Scottish environment. The business has worked on preserving and restoring some of Scotland's most prestigious buildings, making them one of the fastest-growing stonemasonry firms since launching in 2019. 

Andy Marlow, Commercial Director, Trade Direct Insurance, said:

"Scott and his team at Stratum Masonry have achieved impressive success in a relatively short period. We were impressed by their commitment to preserving the stonemasonry trade both now and in the future. Their strong ethical stance on giving back to the local communities and the support they provide for their employees is admirable and makes us very proud to sponsor this award.

"The Special Recognition award is unique because it recognises talents of all shapes and sizes, big and small. From the creative use of social media to improving the lives of tradespeople by raising awareness of issues like health and safety – it rewards the extra commitments made by hard-working tradespeople. On top of that, Scott received £1,000 in prize money and a special 'Barry Head' trophy!"

Accepting his award on the night, Scott Reid of Stratum Masonry said:

"I'd like to thank my team, the clients and my colleague Fraser, who put a lot of work into this as well. I really appreciate this and thank you to On The Tools for hosting an incredible evening."
