As a family company with a century-long connection to East Yorkshire we have always been champions of our local community, whether that’s creating local employment, supporting local sports teams and charities, or simply ensuring our customers get their heating oil and boiler’s serviced in good time for the cold weather. We believe that prosperity lies in supporting the community which we are part of, and which has supported us throughout the years. It is a mutual relationship.
That is why we are particularly proud to announce that our chairman, Mr John Rix, has been presented with a lifetime achievement award at the Bridlington Chamber and Yorkshire Coast Business Awards for his contribution to the East Yorkshire business community.
Such was the popularity of the decision, he received a standing ovation from the crowd that attended the ceremony at the Spa Royal Hall in Bridlington earlier this month.
It is a matter of great pride for the company and everyone who works for it that John has been given this award. His leadership and that of the other members of the Rix family have given the business its core value of community spirit and that filters down through the business making it a very special place to work. We hope that you, our customers, share that sense.
From everyone here at Rix, we would like to offer our sincere congratulations to our chairman for such a fantastic and well deserved achievement.
