The Family Business of the Year Awards are organised by Family Business United, the award-winning magazine and resource centre that champions and celebrates the family business sector. Now in their sixth year, these awards recognise the diversity, strength and depth of family firms across the UK and seek to highlight the contribution that family firms make to the UK economy.
Open to family firms of all generations, sizes and sectors, these awards really do recognise some outstanding family firms and really help to put family businesses on the map.
“We’re extremely excited to have been shortlisted for this award. Being in business is always challenging, however as a family firm, the passion, drive and dedication that we have to achieve, helps us to tackle those challenges with confidence, strength and an important common goal… success.
“Whilst it’s our name above the door, the TMDP family includes each and every member of staff. So well done to all and we’re looking forward to the awards ceremony in June.”Nikki Bryan, Group Director
As Paul Andrews, Founder and Managing Director of Family Business United, the award-winning magazine and resource centre for family firms in the UK, explains, "We are delighted to be able to pull together such a vibrant bunch of family businesses, some that have succeeded for numerous generations and continue to thrive, and others that are relatively young but have great values at the heart of what they do."
Sian Steele, Partner and Head of Family Business at PwC who are sponsors of this award added, "Any one of those shortlisted would make worthy winners and ambassadors for the sector. We are looking forward to finding out more about each of them and I am sure that the decisions to determine the winner will not be easy. We are looking for a great family business ambassador to fly the flag for family businesses in the Midlands."
Previous winners of the Midlands Family Business of the Year include Fracino, Penny Hydraulics and General Building Plastics.
The awards process concludes at a Gala Reception and awards ceremony that takes place in London at the prestigious May Fair Hotel in London on June 7 where the winners will be crowned.
