The oldest family businesses in Essex 2022 report


The report highlighting the oldest family businesses in Essex is now available to download.

Essex is blessed with a vast array of great family-owned businesses, including a number that we are proud to have as our longstanding clients.

Working alongside Family Business United to compile this report, we have uncovered some true gems; both large and small. These family businesses have been at the heart of the Essex economy for over a century and have had a major impact on the communities in which they operate. It’s wonderful that, through this inaugural piece of research, we have the opportunity to celebrate their rich histories and heritage.

As those that work within family-owned businesses know, while it can be a hugely rewarding experience, it comes with some additional challenges. The business and family roles can sometimes overlap and emotions can interfere with sound decision-making. Professional advisers who understand the particular characteristics of family businesses can make all the difference.

At Rickard Luckin, we have a proven track record and long-standing reputation for advising family-owned businesses on key strategic decisions relating to the day-to-day operations and growth. Our expertise covers a range of accounting , tax and strategic services including succession planning, sales and acquisitions, setting up trusts and other wealth management issues.

The joy of carrying out this research is that it has presented an opportunity to shine a light on family-owned businesses throughout the county. We hope that you enjoy reading their stories as much as we have enjoyed carrying out the research and producing the report.
