YPS is a second generation family company who have been trading since 1977.

During their more than 40 year history, the family have navigated the business through good times and turbulent times, whilst always remaining true to their principles of trust, reliability and quality. As a result, they have become the most esteemed and respected supplier in the shrink wrapping industry today. This story of success made sure that YPS were shortlisted for the NFBA’s categories of ‘Family Business of the Year’, ‘Lifetime Achievement’ and ‘Rising Star’.

The winners were unveiled at the glittering awards ceremony on the evening of Saturday 14th July at Wembley Stadium, attended by the Johnson family trio. A grand total of three awards were claimed by YPS, including the North East Regional ‘Rising Star’ and National ‘Rising Star’ prizes, as well as a ‘Lifetime Achievement’ accolade, in direct recognition of Chairman David Johnson’s four decades of success at YPS.

Glyn Johnson, YPS M.D. said ‘We are extremely proud to be a family business that’s still going strong after 40 years. Our reputation is of paramount importance to us because of the family ties and this is reflected in every element of our business. It means that we value integrity, honesty and trustworthiness as well as having a deep sense of pride in every product and service we supply. The memory of scooping these three fantastic awards is something we will relish as a family for years to come.’
