The second-generation family business was one of two companies to receive a highly commended accolade at the 2018 Midlands Family Business Awards in Leicester on Thursday 22nd November.
Despite missing out on the top gong, Sam Kirk, Managing Director of J-Flex, said: “I’m immensely proud of what we’ve achieved this year. We unveiled a brand-new Vision and Company Plan in April, and that included entering a number of business-related awards – including the Midlands Family Business Awards”.
Sam, who succeeded his father John back in April, also heaped praise and thanks on his colleagues: “We have two incredibly loyal shareholders who are committed to business in Retford, and an incredible team of people who make things happen on a day-to-day basis – many of whom have been with the company for 10 or more years. A huge and heartfelt thank you to each and every one of them for helping to make J-Flex one of the Top 3 family businesses in the region”.
