YPS Have Winning Family Fortunes!
Our recent winning streak shows no sign of slowing down this month as we are pleased to announce that YPS have been crowned both regional and national winners at the National Family Business Awards 2018, the UK and Ireland’s only awards dedicated to family businesses!
As our customers will know, we are a second generation family company who have been trading since 1977. Patriarch David Johnson is our Founder and Chairman whilst his son Glyn Johnson is our Managing Director and his daughter Rachel Johnson is our Operations Director. During our more than 40 year history, the family have navigated us through good times and turbulent times, whilst always remaining true to our core principles of trust, reliability and quality. As a result, we have become the most esteemed and respected supplier in the shrink wrapping industry today. This story of success made sure that we were the perfect candidates for the NFBA’s categories of ‘Family Business of the Year’, ‘Lifetime Achievement’ and ‘Rising Star’ for which we were shortlisted!
Our Johnson family trio excitedly attended the glittering awards ceremony on the evening of Saturday 14th July at Wembley Stadium for the unveiling of the winners. They returned to Yorkshire with a grand total of three awards, including the North East Regional ‘Rising Star’ and National ‘Rising Star’ prizes, as well as a ‘Lifetime Achievement’ accolade, in direct recognition of David Johnson’s four decades of success here at YPS.
Glyn Johnson, YPS M.D. said ‘We are extremely proud to be a family business that’s still going strong after 40 years. Our reputation is of paramount importance to us because of the family ties and this is reflected in every element of our business. It means that we value integrity, honesty and trustworthiness as well as having a deep sense of pride in every product and service we supply. The memory of scooping these three fantastic awards is something we will relish as a family for years to come.’
