Ward takes home two wins at family business awards
Midlands-based metal recycling and waste management specialist, Ward, has been awarded ‘Fastest Growing Family Business’ and the top accolade, ‘Family Business of the Year’ in this year’s Midlands Family Business Awards.
The fourth-generation family business was announced as the winner in both of its shortlisted categories at a prestigious black-tie ceremony at Leicester’s Athena, where finalists, sponsors and judges gathered to celebrate the fantastic family businesses operating within the Midlands.
Donald Ward, Commercial Manager at Ward, said: “We were all so excited to win not one, but two awards. Amazing! To be recognised as a fast-growing family business that has ambitious plans for the future is testament to our hard working team. And, to take home the top prize, Family Business of the Year is truly special for team Ward.
“Ward has also recently been named in the Derby Telegraph’s Top 200 companies, ranked 19th in Grant Thornton’s Top 200 East Midlands Businesses and 4th in Derbyshire. The last 18 months have seen significant investment with the redevelopment of our Chesterfield site, the opening of our dedicated dock to increase our metal export capabilities, renovating new offices at the former Albion Leisure Centre in Ilkeston and most recently launching WARDrobe, a new nationwide textile recycling service.”
