Unbeknown to our banquet table of scrubbed-up Whitehall Printing staff an evening of glittering surprises awaited us at Bristol Post Business Awards 2017. Having been nominated for the Family Business of the Year category, sponsored by the BOM Group, was a real honour for the firm as we had only just celebrated our 40th anniversary. To then win the award was the cherry on top of our birthday cake. With six members of the same Bendon family working closely within a 22-strong team, family success and team work is something we are really proud of.
We proceeded to celebrate our family award but as the evening drew to a close, our company video was suddenly broadcast on the big screen! The lovely host Alex Lovell (from BBC Points West) handed over to sponsors UWE who announced that Whitehall Printing had been awarded overall winners of the coveted 'Business of the Year' category. Our somewhat astounded Co-Director Joe Bendon received the award along with his team on stage.
Since then cakes have been in constant supply and two shiny glass trohpies adorn our front office in Barton Hill.
We would like to say a huge thanks to Bristol Post, our brilliant staff, our many loyal clients and of course our family who built the business up to what it is today.
