J&C Joel Announced as National Business Awards Finalist
UK – J&C Joel has been shortlisted for the Lloyds Bank Exporter of the Year Award at the 2017 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. J&C Joel, based in Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of flame retardant fabrics, drapery and stage engineering solutions.
James Wheelwright, J&C Joel’s CEO (pictured), said: “Being shortlisted for this award means a lot to me and everyone who works for J&C Joel across the globe. It definitely makes the hard work and investment we’ve put in over the last 18 months worthwhile.”
The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 award categories. They will now prepare for live presentations to an expert judging panel who will decide the overall winners.
Continuing the celebration of Best of British Ambition, this year’s prestigious award ceremony will take place on Tuesday 14th November 2017, at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, where the winners will be revealed.
Conor McGinn MP recently hosted a reception for the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards at the House of Commons. This enabled finalists to meet fellow entrants, the National Business Awards Advisory Board members, judges (who they will present to in September) and sponsors of each category.
Tom Broughton, group brand director of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards said: “Given the economic uncertainty over the past year, it is inspiring more than ever to see British businesses prosper. Through a thorough and comprehensive judging process, this year’s selected finalists demonstrate exceptional quality and diversity across a range of business sectors within the UK. We are now looking forward to the next step of the process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
