BJS was once again delighted to be an official sponsor of the The Duke of York Young Champions Trophy. This is a select, international 54-hole stroke play golf tournament for young men and women for the current holder of their Under 18 National Championship or the winner of a separate but recognised major golfing event in the preceding year. It is the only junior tournament in the world that plays solely on Open Championship (Links) courses.
This year the tournament took place at Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake. After a challenging 3 days, England’s Ben Jones (pictured with Bruce Taylor, Royal Liverpool Golf Club Captain) came through to win Overall and Boy’s Champion, with Franziska Sliper from Norway becoming Girl’s Champion.
BJS Company is delighted to have had its’ Royal Warrant of Appointment renewed in March 2017 for another 5 years.
BJS’s Chief Executive, Richard Lewis said, “We are absolutely delighted that HM The Queen has graciously agreed to continue to honour us with her Royal Warrant of Appointment. This is a great distinction in our 25th year of appointment and shows not only our dedication to supplying the very highest quality goods and services to the Royal Household and to our clients from around the World but is also, I believe, an acknowledgment of the importance that we have placed on minimising our environmental impact whilst taking very seriously our corporate and social responsibilities to encourage, train and look after our staff and in always buying only ethically sourced precious metals, chemicals and materials.”
