Stockport-based packaging manufacturer, Glossop Cartons, has been shortlisted in two categories of a major family award, and the local community now has the opportunity to get behind the firm in a public vote.
A finalist in both the Manufacturing Excellence and Family Business of the Year categories of the Midlands Family Business Awards, Whitehill Industrial Estate-based Glossop Cartons has been entered into the People’s Choice category, the winner of which is selected following a public vote.
Established in 1982 by Raymond Every, Glossop Cartons remains in the family, with Raymond’s daughters Jacky Sidebottom-Every, Vicky Every and Jill Woodacre sales director, marketing and commercial manager and production director respectively; Jacky’s husband Brian is the managing director.
The Midlands Family Business Awards shortlistings follow a recent award win by Glossop Cartons, who was earlier this month named as a Stockport Business Awards Business of the Year.
Said Jacky Sidebottom-Every:
“Our award achievements are testament to the hard work and tenacity of the entire Glossop Cartons team. They are not only gratifying, but also motivational, and as such will help propel our business forward to achieve even bigger and better things.
“We would be delighted if our local community would get behind us and help us to win People’s Choice and bring this award back to Stockport.”
Nominations open today, 22nd October, running until midnight on 15th November. Voting is free and can be done via www.familybusinessawards.co.uk. Winners will be announced at a ceremony in Leicester on 22nd November.
