We were delighted to see Charles Bentley listed when the 2019 finalists were announced this week! Our main strength centres around our 160-year manufacturing experience so naturally we hoped we would be shortlisted for the Manufacturing Excellence Category. However, we were overwhelmed to find out we had also been shortlisted in the Family Business Of The Year Award Category as well!

The awards are the UK’s only independent, not for profit initiative dedicated to celebrating and recognising the success, achievements and innovations of family run and owned businesses. The awards take place annually and is an opportunity for likeminded independent businesses to create an ethical, friendly and supportive community within the midlands region. Finalists are judged on business development, supporting their people, company values and overall contribution to the community.

We’re confident in our entry (or entries!) due to our continued investment in the manufacturing arm of the business, delivering a great working environment for our people and commitment to on-going support of UK manufacturing as well as the local Loughborough area.

The awards will be taking place on Thursday 7th November 2019 and we’re delighted to be joining a community of like-minded business owners and supporters.
