Brother UK Ltd
Winning a Queen’s Award for Enterprise is a huge achievement for any business, and is particularly special for Brother UK this year.
2018 marks our 50th year of operations. To receive the ultimate recognition for our sustainable development practices as we celebrate this milestone is fantastic news for the business. It tells us we’re doing things right, as we reflect on the past 50 years and plan ahead for the future.
This isn’t the first time we’ve won a Queen’s Award – but that’s not to say we’ve had a 100% success rate over the years, which makes winning this time even more meaningful.
We might not have been successful every time we’ve entered, but we see this as a real positive. It’s essential that the awards uphold the highest of standards, encouraging businesses like ours to strive for excellence in
order to win.
Entering for awards isn’t just a way to benchmark against other companies, but also a real opportunity to gather feedback as the basis for continued improvement within your own firm.
We’ve worked tirelessly to build on our commitment to sustainable development over the past five years. Everything we do is rooted in our ethos, built around ‘doing the right thing’.
Our fundamental purpose is to make the people and businesses we work with more successful, more quickly, which, in turn, has made our own business sustainable and adaptable.
As well as playing an active part in the community near our Tameside HQ, we’ve worked hard to achieve continuous annual reductions in fuel usage and send zero waste to landfill for eight years in a row.
We’re also one of the few organisations in the country to achieve the Investors in People platinum status, recognising the investment we make in our people and their potential.
I’m so proud to be leading this company at such a significant time, and for it to be recognised with this most prestigious award as we celebrate our 50th anniversary year. Phil Jones MBE, managing director, Brother UK
