PDA Associate Partner HMG Paints, a leading manufacturer of paints and coatings, has been named the Manufacturing Family Business of the Year at the prestigious Family Business of the Year Awards 2023. The awards, hosted by Family Business United, took place in the serene Medicine Garden located within the grounds of the Royal College of Physicians. The event aimed to recognise and celebrate the invaluable contributions made by family firms to the national economy.

“Family businesses are the engine room of the UK economy and with 6 million family firms employing around 14 million people in all corners of the country they make a massive impact each and every day”

commented Paul Andrews, Managing Director of Family Business United.

“Incomes are generated, jobs provided and wealth created but as one of the family members said to me, ‘That is just the tip of the iceberg. Family businesses care and want to be seen as doing the right thing, doing business the right way.’”
