Three directors from a Telford-based, family-run business have been named as regional winners in the EY Entrepreneur of the Year UK programme.

Paul, Adam, and Marc Fecher – directors of Northwood – a leading manufacturer and supplier of away-from-home (AfH) and consumer paper hygiene and wiping products – are regional winners for the Midlands and South West area.

Northwood employs 230 people at its headquarters on Stafford Park in Telford.

EY Entrepreneur of the Year is a unique global programme that recognises entrepreneurial achievement among individuals and companies that demonstrate vision, leadership and success. It celebrates entrepreneurship through regional and national awards programmes in more than 60 countries.

Chairman Paul Fecher said: “We are beyond delighted to have been announced as regional winners in this prestigious programme and to be recognised along with other top purpose-driven business leaders. This achievement is testament to the entire Northwood team – our success would not be possible without their hard work and dedication.”

Northwood Group services paper tissue and hygiene suppliers of tissue products to retail, professional and industrial markets. Northwood is involved at each point in the supply chain, from raw material supply, tissue and towel manufacturing, end user product converting and transportation.   

The overall winner will be named at the EY Entrepreneur of The Year UK dinner and awards in November. The winner will go on to represent the UK at the ‘EY World Entrepreneur of the Year’ awards.
