If there are two things we at J.R. Rix & Sons are proud of it is that we are a family company and that our roots are in Yorkshire.
Over the past 140 years we've grown beyond our roots to embrace other fantastic parts of the UK, that’s true, but Yorkshire will always have a special place in the company’s DNA.
That’s why were particularly proud to have been short-listed for the Yorkshire Family Business of the Year award 2015.
The awards are run by Family Business United, an organisation set up to support the UK’s family businesses, and are now in their third year.
As a company we have always strived to put customer satisfaction at the very top of our priorities and this is backed up by our recent Feefo Gold Award which saw us achieve 97 per cent customer satisfaction on the on-line feedback site.
We have been nominated in two categories, Yorkshire family business of the year and the Transport and Logistics category and if we win either, we will be automatically be entered for overall Supreme Champion Family Business of the Year, which is decided by the judges.
There is another category too which you can help us with, the People’s Choice award for the best family business in the UK. So if you’re in the voting mood, why not give us a click in that category!
Voting ends on April 25th so you've plenty of time to show us your support, and the winners our announced on June 11th. To take part click here.
So if you feel like we’ve lived up to our aims of putting the customer first this year then please to take a moment to vote, it would be very much appreciated. Yorkshire has some fantastic family businesses and being short-listed puts J.R. Rix & Sons amongst the cream.
