10th June 2019 Paul Andrews
Falcon Contract Flooring triumph as deserving winners of the National Small Family Business of the Year 2019.
Established in 1984, Falcon Contract Flooring is a family owned carpet and vinyl specialist. What started out as two men and a van has grown to become a nationwide flooring contractor who in their own words are ‘covering the world with the fluffy stuff!’
With around 5 million family firms in the UK providing around 12 million jobs and generating a significant contribution to GDP, these national awards certainly help to put the family business sector on the map and give them the recognition they deserve.
Paul Andrews, Founder and Managing Director of Family Business United explained: “Each year there is an award entry that just hits the mark and our Small Family Business recipients did just that.”
“It might come as a surprise to them but what began as two guys in a van and dared to soar has succeeded and really resonated with the judges.”
“Falcon Contract Flooring are a family as well as a family business and the wider team are part of the journey, respected for all they do and rewarded with a culture that makes the business who they are today. This is a family firm that truly embodies the essence of our Small Family Business of the Year.”
Charles Hassall, Managing Director of Falcon Contract Flooring is thrilled to receive this award adding that “On behalf of the company and all our staff I would like to say thank you for this award and to be recognised on a national level as a small Family business is an absolute honour.”
“Everyone in the team is overwhelmed by this achievement and are looking forward to what the future holds. Watch this space.”
"Everyone here at Falcon is family, whether it be by blood or not; we are a firm who work together, support one another regardless. This award really does mean a lot to us.”
“It was a great night all round. We came runners up in the Midlands family business of the year, we came runners up in the Midlands People Choice award and then totally out of the blue we were announced as the National Small Family Business of the Year award following in the footsteps of the 2018 winners, Millers Fish & Chips.”
As Paul concludes, "It’s a privilege to organise these awards and to find out more about the fantastic people behind the family firms that are the backbone of the UK economy. Falcon Contract Flooring is one such firm - a great family business and one reflects the real essence of a family firm and truly deserving of the Small Family Business of the Year Award 2019."
