Oxford Products has been awarded the South & South West Family Business of the Year 2018 at the Family Business of the Year Awards (FBOTY).
The ceremony, now in its sixth year, is organised by Family Business United, an online resource centre and magazine for the global family business community.
Paul Andrews, founder of Family Business United and creator of the national awards, said: "[South and South West] was a difficult category with some truly outstanding finalists. Oxford Products were worthy winners as a business that is at the fore of the sector in which it operates demonstrating solid business growth, long-term strategic vision, proven success, management drive and determination with a strong commitment both to staff and the local community.
"From a small business with a handful of people to one that now runs four businesses with over 150 people, Oxford Products are a great family business which continues to grow, yet manage to maintain a strong family business feeling throughout the company.”
Andrews is delighted with FBOTY's growth on an annual basis. ”Each year the quality and quantity of nominations increases and it is fantastic to identify and recognised family firms from across the UK," he said.
"It is not just about household names either as the awards give recognition to great British family firms of all sizes from all sectors and we are delighted to champion this national initiative. Winners are determined by a panel of experienced judges looking at a range of criterion including history, family values, governance, development and innovation.”
