Johnsons triumph at business awards

Johnsons Coaches has been named Service Provider of the Year in the 2012 Midlands Business Awards.

The operator won the title at a gala celebration event held on Friday, February 3, at the NEC Hilton Metropole Hotel. It beat off the challenge of four other finalists to scoop the award.

The Henley-in-Arden-based independent family business provides coach hire, holidays and excursions and local bus services in Warwickshire, West Midlands, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire. It has an enviable reputation for high quality service and its distinctive orange, blue and white vehicles are a familiar sight in the region.

Director Pete Johnson received the award from sponsor Patrick Stapleton of the NEC Hilton Metropole. He said: “I am delighted and honoured that we have had our efforts recognised as a team. Being able to combine small family business values with a larger business outlook allows us to give excellent levels of service – and the judges have agreed.

“It is all about people for us. We are a people business and if you believe in your people you can do great things.”

This is the sixth year that the awards, organised by Leamington Spa-based UK Special Events, have taken place. Its MD Harj Sandher said: “We are delighted with the quality of the entrants this year and very pleased such a familiar name – and sight on our roads each day – has received the recognition it deserves.”
