We were delighted to pull together such a vibrant bunch of family businesses for the 2017 awards, some that have succeeded for numerous generations and continue to thrive, and others that are relatively young but have great values at the heart of what they do.
Warmer Homes are a family firm through and through and although one of the newer family firms in the awards this year they are focused on customer service with family values at their core. They are keen to make their mark and challenge perceptions of their industry and pride themselves on exceeding the expectations of their clients.
Their goal is simple – to provide unparalleled levels of customer care and advice, while delivering products at the highest quality but affordable prices. This isn’t just a business owned by a family but a real family run business with members of the Pearce family involved at every stage.
Steve Pearce, Managing Director of Warmer Homes Heating & Renewables added, “We are absolutely thrilled to be the winners of the East and East Anglia Family Business of the Year title. These awards recognise the role families play in business across the UK, and family really is key to the successful running of our business. Members of our family are involved in every aspect of what we do, from the initial meeting of customers right through to handing over of the boiler equipment following installation.”
“We really do appreciate the time and effort that has gone into making this award happen and want to acknowledge the hard work that every member of our family puts into the day to day running of the business.”
The Family Business of the Year Awards are organised by Family Business United, the award-winning magazine and resource centre that champions and celebrates the family business sector. Now in their fifth year, these awards recognise the diversity, strength and depth of family firms across the UK and seek to highlight the contribution that family firms make to the UK economy.
Open to family firms of all generations, sizes and sectors, these awards recognise some outstanding family firms and help to put family businesses on the map. Judged by a panel of experts from the world of family business advising together with a group of family business representatives, the awards are well respected and sought after accolades.
