Glossop Cartons had a big reason to celebrate at the end of June after being awarded the People’s Choice Award (North & Northern Ireland) at the Family Business of the Year!
After ‘attending’ the awards event on YouTube rather than in person, we were delighted to receive the award.
The Family Business of the Year Awards are organised annually by Family Business United, the family business champions, and seek to recognise and celebrate the contribution that family firms make to the UK economy. As Paul Andrews, Founder and CEO of Family Business United explains, “With over 5 million family businesses across the UK they really are the heart of the nation and the engine room of the UK economy. Family businesses deserve recognition for the income they generate, jobs they provide and the wealth they create, not to mention the great work they do in the communities in which they are based.
“The People’s Choice Awards are a little bit special as they are voted for by the public and to win demonstrates the role that the business plays and the respect and support it has in the broader community too. 2020 has not been an easy year for many so it was pleasing to see a record number of votes cast in the awards this year. Over 14,000 votes were cast and the competition was tough but winners emerged and deserve their moment in the spotlight. All of our People’s Choice winners are great ambassadors for a sector that does so much.”
As one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of carton board packaging products, Glossop Cartons began as a humble start-up in 1982, started by Joint Managing Director, Jacky Sidebottom-Every’s father.
Now a thriving industry leader holding a strong customer base of leading household names, Jacky works alongside her husband and two sisters and has helped establish the company as a thriving industry leader holding a strong customer base of leading household names.
Says Jacky, “We were thrilled to have won. After what has been a very challenging time for the economy – and everyone as a whole – it was a very welcome piece of good news for the whole team.”
