On Friday 13th May, Farrall’s Group joined family businesses from across the region at The Rum Warehouse in Liverpool’s Iconic Titanic Hotel to celebrate at the North West Family Business Awards 2022.
A capacity crowd of over 400 gathered on the night to see the winners of the region’s best family businesses revealed, including representatives from over 60 family business finalists, plus judges, sponsors and event hosts Sue Howorth, Dave Clarkson and food writer and presenter, Nigel Barden.
It was a night for celebrations all round but in particularly for 3rd Generation Family Business Farrall’s Group as they took home the Haulage & Logistics title before being crowned the overall North West Family Business of the Year.
Matthew Farrall, Managing Director of Farrall’s Group commented, “We were so honoured to have won the Haulage & Logistics award and then to have been chosen as this year’s overall winners - to say we are over the moon is an understatement!”
He added, “I am so proud to work alongside my family and to continue my Grandad’s vision for Farrall’s Group. We have great support from our team who work day in, day out to offer our customers exceptional service and allow us to sustainably grow.
“These awards are all down to their hard work, determination and the pride they take in their roles. It isn’t easy to build a team of fantastic individuals who you can trust to represent your family name, but we are incredibly lucky to have a team who embodies our family values to the core. So to each member of Team FG past and present who have helped shape our business into the great family business that it is today, thank you!”
Catering for businesses of all sizes and across a diverse set of industries, Farrall’s Group provide expert logistics and warehousing solutions across the UK and Europe. Being one of the leading businesses in their sector, they are well known for their reliability and exceptional customer service.
This is a family firm with a real story to tell, starting out back in 1956 when Eddie and Joan made the choice to buy a lorry instead of getting married, founding Edwin C Farrall Transport. Since that day the business has gone from strength to strength and is now moving into the third generation, with exponential growth beyond Eddie and Joans’ wildest dreams. The business now includes a fleet of 70 vehicles, three warehouses, a vehicle workshop and over 120 employees who are integral to their success and keep the business moving forward.
Sue Howorth, Awards Co-Founder said, “This year the standard of entries was incredibly high and we know that our judges had their work cut out to choose the winners!”
“Each one of our winners are truly outstanding family businesses, leading the way in their sectors with strong family business values. They should be very proud of their achievements!”
Dave Clarkson, Awards Co-Founder commented, “We wanted this year’s awards to be something really special and we’re delighted with how it came together on the night. It was wonderful to be able to celebrate the family business sector across the North West.”
“We’d like to thank all our judges and events team for their incredible hard work, our sponsors for their support and to everyone who entered the awards this year!”
