Darke & Taylor are thrilled to announce a considerable double achievement at this years’ 2015 Oxfordshire Business Awards
Competing against some of the best employers in the county, the company won the “Apprenticeship of the Year” award in recognition of many years of investment in our apprenticeship scheme and evidence of further career development and long term employment for our qualified apprentices.
At the end of the evening’s sell-out prestigious awards ceremony, attended by over 500 people, things got even better when the overall winner of the 2015 Oxfordshire Business Awards was announced and, much to our delight, Darke & Taylor was voted as the “Oxfordshire Business of the Year”.
These awards come on the back of last years’ “Oxfordshire Large Business of the Year” Award, and it was fantastic to be able to send 10 employees who are all a product of Darke & Taylor’s apprenticeship and training schemes to accept the award on the company’s behalf.
“It’s a wonderful feeling and it is all down to our staff that we have been recognised at such a prestigious business awards ceremony” Paul McNaughton, Managing Director

Business of the Year:
This accolade, sponsored by Oxford Products, was voted for by all of the 2015 award sponsors and judges who chose from the full list of winners and finalists on the night to decide which company was the overall winner. Over the last 21 years, some of Oxfordshire’s leading and most successful companies have won this award, confirming their status as the best in the county.
