Our team travelled down to the King Power Stadium in Leicester last night for the 10th Family Business Awards ceremony and dinner, sponsored by Orderwise, Buckles Solicitors, PwC, Shakespeare Martineau, Streets Chartered Accountants, The Wilson Organisation and WARD.
We were announced as finalists for both the Fastest Growing Family Business and Manufacturing Excellence Awards, with the results being announced at the awards ceremony yesterday evening.
Everyone put on their best dresses, suits and bow ties for the occasion, ready for a fantastic night ahead! It was a great opportunity to meet other family businesses located in the East Midlands, creating more contacts across our network and celebrate everyone's hard work over the last couple of years.
We were very grateful to be awarded Highly Commended for the Fastest Growing Family Business Award, as recognition for the expansion that Juice Sauz has experienced since launching back in 2015. Every single member of staff in our team play a huge role in making the business what it is today, with their passion and drive allowing us to grow at such a substantial rate.
Following our acquisition of The Yorkshire Vaper (TYV) Manufacturing back in August, we are now able to expand our manufacturing outreach and provide more customers with a variety of high-quality UK manufactured e-liquids across both the UK and the rest of the world.
The growth that we have experienced, especially over the last year, has led to us planning a purpose-built warehouse of 65,0000 sq ft that will begin in 2020. This purpose-built warehouse will enable us to double our current manufacturing outreach and offer a wider range of products to all of our customers.
Customer safety and satisfaction are one of our biggest priorities here at Juice Sauz, and we wouldn't be where we are today if it wasn't for the continued support and loyalty of our customers, both business and retail. We'd like to thank each and every one of you for your support, whether you've been with us from the start or have recently started purchasing from us.
As a family-run business, being announced as Highly Commended for the Fastest Growing Family Business Award is a huge milestone for us, especially as there were six finalists for every award. This recognition helps us to carry on delivering products that can be enjoyed by all of our customers, and strive for even bigger and better things in the future.
Liam Chapman, Juice Sauz Director, said:
"It is an absolute pleasure for Juice Sauz to be awarded Highly Commended for the Fastest Growing Family Business Award. Our team work incredibly hard every day to make sure our customers are well looked after and have access to the best e-liquid products possible. We are so grateful to have been given the opportunity to attend the 10th Family Business Awards as a finalist, and we're very much looking forward to an exciting future at Juice Sauz."
