10 July 2018 10:54

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Yorkshire’s largest independent vehicle-hire firm is celebrating scooping the title of business of the year at a prestigious awards ceremony.

Nearly 200 business people from Kirklees, Calderdale and Wakefield gathered together for Eaton Smith’s Business of the Year Awards on Friday 6th July which saw Arrow Self Drive take home first prize.

Now in its 23rd year, the competition is run annually in conjunction with the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce and the Department for International Trade.

The awards recognise the hard work, brilliance and innovation of the best businesses in Kirklees, Calderdale and Wakefield.

Established in 1988, family-run business, Arrow Self Drive delivers safe, sustainable and affordable road transport to hundreds of customers across the region. Celebrating 30 years in business, today the company boasts a fleet of almost 2,000 rental vehicles.

The awards, which were presented by local businessman Ken Davy, saw the twelve recent ‘Business of the Month’ award winners in attendance to await the verdict of the yearly prize.

Arrow Self Drive thrived against tough competition, with Hunter Safety Solutions named in second place and third place went to Propack Direct Mail Ltd.

The event was hosted by Eaton Smith’s Senior Partner, Mike Webb, who said of the monthly winners:

“What all the monthly winners have in common is diligence, flair and a determination to carve out a profitable niche in unexplored areas of their individual market places and, for that, they are all to be congratulated.”

James Hill, managing director of Arrow Self Drive commented:

“To be named the business of the year is a great achievement and we couldn’t be happier. I’m so proud of our whole team for the hard work they have put in over the past 30 years to make the company the success that it is today.

“The competition was tough with some truly fantastic businesses in the running. We’re delighted to have been named as the winners at the ceremony held in our founding home town of Huddersfield which remains our HQ.”

The Eaton Smith Business of the Year Awards runs every year and is the culmination of the Business of the Month Awards. Applications are welcomed for all types and sizes of business.
