Double whammy for Carlisle-based motor factor


Date: 15-Feb-2019

Cumbrian motor factor, K&S McKenzie Ltd., have been shortlisted as finalists in not one, but TWO categories at this year’s Cumbria Family Business Awards.

K&S McKenzie beat strong competition to become one of three finalists in the Retailers and Wholesalers category. Further to this, Brandon McKenzie – who is the third generation of the family to work for the business – has been shortlisted for the Employee of the Year award. 

The Cumbria Family Business Awards has celebrated some incredible family businesses over the years, and now in its third year, this year’s awards saw a record number of businesses entering the awards from across Cumbria. The finalists will now each meet with the specially selected panel of expert judges across two days of interviews before the judges make their final decisions. 

Stuart McKenzie said; “We are extremely proud to have been shortlisted as finalists in this year’s Cumbria Family Business Awards, especially amongst such a fantastic array of local family businesses. We are very much looking forward to the big night and to the next stage of the judging where we get to personally meet the judges and share more about the story of our family business.”

The winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony in March, hosted by none other than fellow Northerners, The Hairy Bikers – aka Simon “Si” King and Dave Myers. 

K&S McKenzie was founded by Keith and Sara McKenzie and is today run by their sons Stuart and Alastair. The business operates all over the UK from its base in Carlisle, and last year saw them celebrate 50 years in business. They are a major supplier of AdBlue across the whole of the UK and also provide an expert chain testing and calibration service, are a BOC Gas agent, and offer a wide-ranging variety of products and services.
