The ceremony, with contestants from across Lancashire, Cheshire, Cumbria, Great Manchester & Merseyside took place in Manchester Airports aptly named Concorde Conference Centre. The North West Family Business of the Year awards night was hosted by accomplished food writer and presenter Nigel Barden, whilst the announcement for the award itself came from category sponsor Lancaster University Business Engagement.

Sue Howorth, Founder and co-director of The Family Business Network and The North West Family Business Awards said: “This has been a fantastic event, which really has celebrated the great work family businesses do, which enriches their communities and the country’s economy.

“The response from the business sector and the public has been fantastic for this inaugural event. We had 192 entries from across Lancashire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Cumbria.

“It was a tough job for the judges as the standard of entries was so high.”

Steven Dunne, Managing Director of First Trace, said about the win: “It has been an incredible event and journey, and I’m so proud of the team and their efforts to be here tonight. We started as a family business over twenty years ago, and not only has the business grown – our family has too.

“We’re a proud family business who have had three generations work here, so to take home the win in the Small Manufacturing and Engineering award is a great feeling.”snug underfloor heating first trace north west family business awards staff photo 2
