Workhorse Group Drive Away With Transport & Logistics Title

The culmination of the Family Business of the Year Awards 2023 saw the Workhorse Group take home the national title as the Transport & Logistics Family Business of the Year Award at a gala awards evening held at The Royal College of Physicians in Regent’s Park in London.

Organised by Family Business United, these prestigious awards are now a firm fixture in the family business calendar and celebrate the very best of British family firms from all corners of the UK. Awards are given by region, sector and nationally in recognition of qualities such as entrepreneurship, innovation and sustainability, community engagement and ultimately one family business is crowned the Supreme Champions.

As Paul Andrews, Founder and CEO of Family Business United explains,

“As an organisation we champion and celebrate family-owned businesses across the UK, recognising the contribution they make in terms of employment, income generation and wealth creation as well as the impact they have on the communities in which they operate.”

“Since 2012 these awards have grown to become something really special, recognising family firms from all sectors, young and multi-generational family firms alike, large and small but all sharing the same underlying values, pride and passion for what they do and a strong desire to do business the right way. Each of the winners is a great business with a strong narrative and is a great ambassador for the broader family business community too.”

As Paul continues, “Our Transport and Logistics winner can only be described with one word – entrepreneurial. Entrepreneurship is in the DNA of this family business, a business that comprises a number of businesses within the group, all of which make a difference too. A strong focus on giving back to the community and sustainability are key drivers, along with the vision of the owner and a passion that just wants to make a difference.”

“This business is entrepreneurial unlike many others, but with family values throughout. Expanding, innovating and looking to the future, our winner is well deserved and clearly has an exciting journey ahead.”

Workhorse Group director Simon Dickerson said,

“To win a national award and then to come Runners Up in another is truly humbling! This award is for everybody involved with, and part of, the Workhorse family both past and present! What a journey we are on, but it is only the start. We now take the next steps and will use this inspiration and feeling to help us to push forward.”

As Paul adds, “Family businesses are the engine room of the UK economy and these awards celebrate their contribution. It was great to bring the family business community back together in person to recognise the incredible family firms that operate throughout the UK and to crown some fantastic winners.”

“Congratulations to the Workhorse Group on winning this award. It is fantastic recognition of what they do as a business and it was a pleasure to present them with the award during a fantastic evening that once more put the family business sector on the map.”
