• Century Office shortlisted for Family Business of the Year

        • Century Office has announced it has been shortlisted for the second year in a row for a Family Business of the Year Award in the ‘East and East Anglia Family Business of the Year’ category. 

          Introduced in 2012, the Family Business of the Year Awards are organised by magazine and resource centre, Family Business United. The awards were started in order to acknowledge and celebrate the family business sector and the contributions they provide for their local communities as well as the UK economy. 

          Century Office won an award in 2018 and joined the likes of previous winners that include Thatcher’s Cider Company and F. Hinds Limited. 

          Sarah Bays, one of Century Office’s directors said, “the challenges involved with running any business are numerous, but there are undoubtedly additional issues which arise when the company is led and run by various members of the same family. Century are no exception and the past 5 years have seen many changes forced upon us for the business to survive. We are delighted to have overcome these challenges and are excited to currently be working on our five-year business plan with our fabulous team, including our eldest son who joined us in 2018. It is wonderful to have our efforts recognised, not once but twice, and we look forward to meeting other like-minded families at the Awards event in June.” 

          Winners will be announced on the 6th June 2019 at the May Fair Hotel in London.
