Jacksons Fencing Wins Best Business Accolade
Jacksons Fencing, the (Kent) based perimeter security and access control business has won a prestigious Best Business Award – credited as one of the UK’s highest profile awards – in the Best Large Business category.
Jacksons, which is celebrating its 65th anniversary this year, was praised for its proven ability to evolve the company’s products and services and for its pioneering approach to raising standards in gate automation safety via the Gate Safe campaign which was founded by Jacksons.
The judging panel for the awards commented “It is great to hear of a family business developing and evolving its products and services through the generations. From fencing, it has expanded into the security market and overseas to make the most of global markets. Its financial performance is strong and research company Plimsoll ranked Jacksons as the eighth largest (by sales) fencing company and the thirteenth most profitable in the UK. It has put a huge amount of resources into its Gate Safe campaign to prevent automated gate accidents. A great business with a great future.”
The Best Business Awards attract a wide range of entries from across all sectors from large international PLCs and public sector organisations to dynamic and innovative SMEs. Companies competing for the Best Large Business Award are required to demonstrate evidence of outstanding products coupled with great people, innovative marketing and a standard of customer service to be proud of. The judges were also looking for a company with a track record for impressive financial performance, balanced with a heightened awareness of CSR (corporate social responsibility).
Competing in the Large Business category (open to companies employing more than 200 people or with a turnover in excess of £10m), Jacksons Fencing faced some stiff competition. Richard Jackson, CEO of Jacksons Fencing said, “Naturally we are thrilled to have been awarded this accolade, especially in a year when we are celebrating the achievements of the company over the last 65 years since its inception. Quality is the cornerstone of Jacksons’ success and winning this type of award truly confirms the company’s over-riding commitment to being the best in everything we do, from the quality of the products that we make through to the exceptional standard of customer service for which we are renowned”.
