A proud family business
Founded in 1990, GBP is a family owned and run business, with two generations of the Sutherland family working in the business today – our founder Janet Sutherland, her son Alan Sutherland, who is Managing Director of the business, and youngest daughter Clare Sutherland.
The team are immensely proud of GBP’s heritage and roots, and that it is a family business that continues to be led, built and run by a hardworking, committed and determined team.
The business’ strong family values and growth have been recognized in a number of national Awards: GBP was crowned The Midlands Family Business of the Year in the 2017 Family Business United national awards, when the judges described the company as "a truly great British family firm with strong family values at their core and a belief in what they do". In 2015, GBP was voted the UK’s Best Small Family Business, in the Red Ribbon Family Business Place awards.
