Jointine Products in the running for a top award!
Date: 4th September 2019
Jointine Products (Lincoln) Ltd is in the running for a top award for Midlands family businesses.
The company is a finalist in the Manufacturing Excellence category of the Midlands Family Business Awards, the UK’s only independent, not-for-profit annual Awards showcase for family businesses in the Midlands.
Representatives of Jointine Products will now meet with the Awards’ independent judging panel, which is led by a leading family business individual, supported by a sponsor representative, an industry expert, and representative from the Midlands Family Business Awards team.
The company is also automatically entered into the People’s Choice Award, sponsored by Streets Chartered Accountants. The Winner and Highly Commended of this special award are decided solely by the number of votes from the public, and votes can be made online at www.familybusinessawards.co.uk from the 1st to 31st October 2019.
Commenting on being named a finalist in the Awards, Jane Smith, Managing Director of Jointine Products said: “We are absolutely overjoyed to be a finalist in this prestigious category and are so pleased that our small family owned business with both manufacturing and exporting prowess is being recognised as such.”
Now in their 10th Anniversary year, the not-for-profit Midlands Family Business Awards are backed and run by The Wilson Organisation. The firm’s MD Charlotte Perkins, the third generation of the family to lead the business alongside her sister Annabel Prow, says:
“The Awards are the Midlands’ only independent initiative to recognise the work, success, innovations and achievements of family businesses. Family businesses are the backbone of the British economy, with two in every three of UK businesses being family owned. They generate over a quarter of UK GDP and employ around 12.2 million.
“Having launched the awards back in 2010, our aim has always been to shine a light on the region’s talented and successful family businesses and to play our part in creating a community of likeminded and supportive individuals.
“The awards have grown year on year and I think that is testament to the volume and calibre of brilliant firms in our region, and the fact that family businesses embrace celebrating their own success and that of others.
“Each of this year’s entrants demonstrate the exceptional pedigree of the family businesses in the Midlands and the sector’s vital contribution to the region’s economy. We wish Jointine Products and all this year’s finalists the very best when they meet the judges in the final round.”
The winners of the Awards’ ten categories remain a tightly kept secret until the Awards ceremony and black-tie dinner, which takes place on Thursday 7th November 2019 at Leicester’s King Power Stadium, and will be attended by more than 300 guests, including representatives from Jointine Products.
The Awards are the only initiative dedicated to celebrating and recognising the success, achievements and innovations of family run and owned businesses across the Midlands.
