Bagnalls are very proud to announce that not only are we the winners of the Family Business United (FBU) Yorkshire region but also FBU Supreme Champions. The awards recognise the diversity, strength and depth of family firms across the UK and the contribution they make to the UK economy. There were over one hundred companies shortlisted for the awards, in businesses ranging from hotels and bakeries to wine makers and financial services.
We were one of nine companies competing to win FBU Yorkshire and were elated when we were announced as regional winners. We couldn’t have been happier, or so we thought……
Then, came the final award of the evening….the presenter started her summary of the winning company and her words resonated so much with Bagnalls but we didn’t dare to hope…until she said “…..and this company has been doing this for over 140 years!”
Overjoyed, ecstatic, amazed – there aren’t enough words to say how incredibly thrilled we were to be presented with the award for FBU Supreme Champions, 2016. Luckily, Stephen wasn’t lost for words and gave a very heartfelt speech recognising the efforts of all who work for Bagnalls.
Thanks to all that supported us by voting…..So Proud!!!
