Glossop Cartons has been shortlisted in two categories of a major family business award, and customers, suppliers and other industry contacts now have the opportunity to support the company in a public vote.
A finalist in both the Manufacturing Excellence and Family Business of the Year categories of the Midlands Family Business Awards, Glossop Cartons has been entered into the People’s Choice category, the winner of which is selected following a public vote.
Established in 1982 by Raymond Every, Glossop Cartons remains in the family, with Raymond’s daughters Jacky Sidebottom-Every, Vicky Every and Jill Woodacre sales director, marketing and commercial manager and production director respectively; Jacky’s husband Brian is the managing director.
The Midlands Family Business Awards shortlistings follow a recent award win by Glossop Cartons, who was earlier this month named as a Stockport Business Awards Business of the Year.
Jacky Sidebottom-Every said, ‘Our award achievements are testament to the hard work and tenacity of the entire Glossop Cartons team. They are not only gratifying, but also motivational, and as such will help propel our business forward, as we strive to further improve our customer offer.
‘It has been a busy year for us, as we have continued to invest in the latest packaging technology, staff and systems to enable the sustainable delivery of innovative packaging solutions, and we would be delighted if some of our valued industry friends would like to help us to round off 2018 by winning the People’s Choice Midlands Family Business Award.’
Nominations run until midnight on 15 November and voting is free of charge and can be done via www.familybusinessawards.co.uk
