Travelworld Motorhomes has been highly commended in the Fastest Growing Business category at the Midlands Family Business Awards. The luxury motorhome company is based in Halesfield.

Sponsored by PwC, the Fastest Growing Business category aims to recognise businesses who can demonstrate strong and sustained growth, in line with keeping family business values at the core of operation.

Now in their ninth year, the not-for-profit Midlands Family Business Awards are backed and run by The Wilson Organisation, a Nottingham third-generation family business.

The awards are the region’s only independent, not-for-profit initiative dedicated to celebrating and recognising the success, achievements and innovations of family-run and owned businesses.


Ross Edwards, managing director of Travelworld, said: "To receive recognition for the growth we’ve achieved over a short space of time is a testament to everyone at Travelworld.

"We congratulate all other businesses who took part this year. For us, not only were we celebrating as a Midlands-based business but we were also proud to be representing the motorhome sector.

"Our big takeaway from the awards credit is even further impetus to keep on growing and being successful.”


Wilson’s managing director, Charlotte Perkins said: "The team and judges have been blown away by the calibre of all the finalists.

“We run the awards as a not-for-profit initiative and are honoured to provide a platform for the Midlands’ family business community to showcase and celebrate their successes and work, for the ninth year running," she said.

“The talent, ambition and entrepreneurial spirit of our finalists and winners highlights the significant role that family businesses play in keeping the Midlands’ economy thriving.”
