For 6 years now, Caribbean Blinds has been a proud member of Family Business United (FBU), an organisation that acts as the voice for the global family business community and provides an invaluable source of insight into the sector.
Founder and CEO of FBU, Paul Andrews, strongly believes that family firms deserve all the recognition they can get for the contributions they make on a daily basis, and to be proud of their roots. Because of this, they have created a ‘badge’ that enables their members to celebrate who they are as part of a wider community, whilst increasing awareness of the sector.
We are now one of many family businesses across the UK to display the British Family Business Badge, which demonstrates that we are…
- Proud of being a family business
- Committed to doing business the right way
- Invested in creating a sustainable firm for future generations
- Committed to taking a long-term view
- Proud of having a heritage but recognising the need to remain relevant, now and for the future
For over 35 years, our family-owned business has been devoted to becoming the UK’s leading designer, manufacturer and installer of luxury external shading systems including stylish patio awnings, innovative external blinds and all-weather louvered roof canopies that enable outdoor spaces to be used all year round.
Our Managing Director, Stuart Dantzic, said: “A family firm’s vision is as consistent as it is cohesive – not only does it open more opportunities for business development and continued success, it also results in a more unified leadership whilst promoting solidarity in and amongst all family members within the business.
“Since it was founded in 1987, Caribbean Blinds has implemented a dynamic and forward-thinking approach. Our dedicated and committed team holds true family values at the heart of everything we do. Family-run firms contribute so much to the economy in terms of employment, income and wealth creation. We are proud to be a family business and understand the essence of what it takes to succeed as a family firm too.”
Paul Andrews added: “Family businesses are the engine room of the UK economy, making a significant contribution through the people they employ, the income they generate, the wealth they create and the communities that they support, which for many, has been something that they have done for generations.
“We hope that the Badge will encourage family firms to come together and collectively celebrate their importance and help us raise awareness of the sector and the significant contribution it makes across the country each and every day.”
