We’re so thrilled that the efforts of all our #PlattsPeople across all areas of the business are recognised by prestigious awards like these- and we’re looking forward to the 18th May, when the National Winners will be announced in Glasgow! We’d love to bring a National Award back to North Wales!
Here’s an excerpt of a story posted by Business Live Wales, written by Daily Post Editor, Owen Hughes, and shared with permission:
“The winners of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) Celebrating Small Business Awards were revealed at a ceremony in Cardiff.
Presented by journalist and presenter Andrea Byrne at Voco St. David’s Cardiff Hotel, the ceremony saw awards collected by small businesses from across Wales for 12 categories.
Platts Agriculture in Wrexham took both the Environmental and Sustainability Business of the Year, and Family Business of the Year, after their operations impressed the judges.
The Environmental and Sustainability award recognises the most ethical, socially responsible or green business, and was open to small business owners who have helped drive environmental improvements across their businesses and the wider green economy. The Family Business of the Year award recognises how family values best influence the values of the business.
Established in 1973 by then-farmers Robert and Christine Platt, the business is now a market leader, manufacturing and delivering specialist dairy cattle bedding Nationwide, and employs 60 staff across three sites in Wrexham.
Run by their daughter Caroline Platt, Managing Director, they divert thousands of tonnes from landfill annually, transforming this into finished products, to promote increased milk production and cattle welfare. Recently, third generation and grandson of Robert and Christine, Chris Whittaker joined as a director, catalysing business development, and bringing new entrepreneurial energy.”
