2017 is coming to a close. It’s time to reflect upon the success seen within last 12 months. So we’ve joined the York Press Business Awards to celebrate achievements seen within businesses who operate in the North and East Yorkshire region.
Now into its 27th Year, this hugely popular event is York’s business world equivalent to the Oscars or Grammys. With hundreds of applicants split from organisations, split into eleven categories.
Autohorn Fleet Services are delighted to be announced winners of the Large Business of the Year category. Sponsored by local solicitor firm, Lupton Fawcett.
Upon taking the award, at the York Press Business Awards, Sales and Operations Director Scott Jenkins commented:
“We are very proud. It’s because of the team that we are here. We are a family, and that’s what we are all about. We run it like a family and that’s very important to us.
“It’s not about the profit it’s about how we work as a team, and that works for us.
“Last year we won the Socially Responsible Business and that was a fantastic award to win. We didn’t realise how much it meant until we walked back in the next day and whole team were ecstatic about what we achieved.
“With this one it will be even more so.”
Decreasing working hours and increasing our employee benefits. We’re very pleased that we’d been recognised in another category, Employer of the Year. As our ongoing commitment to improve staff wellbeing is hugely important to us.
Autohorn finalists elsewhere too..
Raising the Bar, a separate awards ceremony held by the North & West Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce have also recognised Autohorn’s efforts over the previous 12 months.
With numerous fun-raising days and the sponsorship of the York Soapbox Challenge, Autohorn were finalists in the Community Business (under 150 employees) category. Narrowly missing out to accounting firm Garbutt + Elliot.
2017 has been an amazing year for everybody involved with Autohorn and we plan to continue our success right through to 2018.
We’d also like to extend congratulations to all winners and finalists in each category. We also wish to luck to all future award applicants, and look forward to see what can be achieved within the New Year!
