Kings Lynn’s based Captain Fawcett Ltd confirmed as a finalist in the Eastern Daily Press Norfolk Business Award 2020. Huzzah!
Captain Fawcett Ltd is delighted to be a finalist in the Small & Medium Business category of the Eastern Daily Press Norfolk Business Awards 2020.
A category sponsored by Archant, the Small & Medium Business Award is to acknowledge companies demonstrating all round strength including sales growth, profitability, customer service, branding, leadership, corporate social responsibility, best HR practice and innovation.
This news is a great boost to morale for the whole Fawcett team, particularly welcome in this, the company’s 10th Anniversary year. Celebrations to mark the occasion have, of course, been somewhat delayed due to somewhat momentous global events yet all at HQ have been ‘Keeping a Stiff Upper Lip Regardless’ - a phrase which may be said to have become the team’s motto. Meanwhile, plans for further developing product ranges and reaching out to new territories have continued, albeit with meetings taking place online rather than the company’s preferred face-to-face approach.
Combining a unique brand of Edwardian derring do with a humorously idiosyncratic take on what it means to be a gentleman in the 21st century, Captain Fawcett Ltd is a manufacturer, purveyor and exporter of simply ‘First Class Gentleman’s Grooming Requisites’. Formulated at his Gentleman’s Emporium in Kings Lynn, Norfolk, UK, all of Captain Fawcett Balms and Oils are produced in-house along with the legendary wax which is still made by the company’s founder himself. Captain Fawcett Ltd is proud of being a niche brand, uncompromising on quality. All packaging is made in the UK, as is the majority of Fawcett’s products. Attention to detail is paramount.
While waiting for news of the winners, due to be announced on 24th November, Captain Fawcett’s founder Richie Finney says ‘All at HQ are truly delighted. This extraordinary year has been challenging for us all both personally and as a company but the team at Captain Fawcett share a can do, pulling together attitude which gets us through. Plus lashings of tea and cake of course! All the finalists are nothing short of inspirational in a gloriously entrepreneurial and ever more outward-looking county. We are proud to be in their number.’
