Shortly after picking up three awards at the Professional Clothing Awards, the second generation safety footwear manufacturer Rock Fall, has again stepped forward to collect another prestigious award.
The National Family Business Awards took place at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 15th July 2017. The event, which some call the Oscars of the Family Business Awards, was attended by some of the largest and longest running family businesses across the UK and Ireland. With some businesses into a seventh generation.
The awards had over 200 nominations and welcomed over 350 guests to the grand ceremony, making it the biggest awards evening for the organisers, in their 8th year.
Rock Fall performed well at the NFBAs, and were presented with the Best Small Business in the Midlands Region. The Directors at the company were pleased with the win which reinforces the 2015 win at the regional equivalent, the MFBAs, where they were successful in the same category.
There is a strong heritage and history behind the Rock Fall brand, which is 20 years old this year. They are recognised in the industry as a brand that creates fairly priced footwear of the highest quality. The company have experienced a sustained surge in their order book, growing 387% in the last 5 years.
Director Richard Noon said: "We are delighted to have won the Midlands Best Small Family Business Award, huge congratulations to all nominees and winners. We’ve already been recognised on a national level twice in 2017, a clear sign of the progress the business is making."
