Wybone celebrates 50th year at Barnsley & Rotherham Awards

October 22, 2019

The celebrations for our 50th anniversary continued on Friday as we attended the Barnsley & Rotherham Business Awards at Magna Science Adventure Centre. These awards were hosted by the Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce, of which we are a member.

The evening commended businesses in the Barnsley and Rotherham region, with a drinks reception and a delicious three course meal. A few of the Wybone team were invited to represent the company but to make sure everyone got involved in the celebrations, we held a buffet lunch for all staff on the day.

We were being acknowledged at the awards for 50 years in business – our Managing Director Richard and Production Manager Paul took to the stage to collect our award. Paul is one of our longest serving members of staff and has worked in our glass fibre department for over 40 years!

We’re proud of what we have achieved over the last 50 years and we’ve gone from strength to strength, maintaining the principles that our Founder, Mr Wyatt strongly believed in. With a strong customer base in the UK, we’re now exporting to more than 10 countries internationally.

We’re continuing the celebrations with our staff and customers for the next few months and into the new year – watch this space!

Over the past five decades, we’ve met with a lot of familiar faces and worked with a number of organisations again and again. If you have any photographs or stories that you would like to share with us – we’d love to hear them!
