Wilkes Group, the Yorkshire based family group of Companies, currently celebrating sixty-four years, are proud to announce they are now of loyal and humble service to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.
Thirsty 4 Water, Wilkes Group’s leading national online service provider and distributor of bottled and plumbed in water coolers, have secured a contract with Prince Charles’ privately run company, Duchy of Cornwall, at their head office, Buckingham Gate in Central London.
Simon Wilkes, Head of Thirsty 4 Water said: “We were only too happy to assist in the thirst quenching of staff and visitors at the Duchy of Cornwall’s premises and we are assured that Thirsty 4 Water’s branding and charitable connections have played an important part in assisting us to win this contract. It is a great success for our company and I am thrilled that we are able to include the Duchy of Cornwall to our ever growing list of customers from around the UK. Of late we have had some unusual additions to our client list, from Tower Bridge in London to the set of Hollyoaks in Liverpool!”
Following five years of service to the Prince, Wilkes Group may be able to apply for a Royal Warrant of Appointment, something which is of high regard in the trade industry.
Simon Wilkes added: “It also proves that just because we are based in Yorkshire, it doesn’t mean that we can’t compete and win against ‘the big boys down south’. Overheads and rates are much more affordable in the north, which helps us to keep costs down for both ourselves and our customers whilst all the time remaining committed to the highest standards of service and excellence.”
