Tim Rix is awarded CBE in New Years Honours 2018

It has been a ‘Hull’ of a year filled with an abundance of events, including ballet, exhibitions, debates, festivals and films. It only seems fitting that the Hull City of Culture spotlight has moved across on to those who were at the forefront of its success.

A group of civil, creative and business leaders have now been named on The Queen’s New Year Honours list 2018 and we are thrilled to announce our very own chairman, Tim Rix, is to receive a CBE for services to the economy and regeneration in the Humber Region.

Tim Rix is the 5th generation to come into the family business which started out as ship owners in the 1870’s. J.R. Rix & Sons are the parent company of Rix Petroleum, Rix Heating and Rix Shipping to name a few and are one of Hull’s largest family-owned businesses.

Today J.R. Rix & Sons Ltd has a variety of divisions, including warehousing, car retailing, fuel distribution, manufacturing and property development. To find out more about the large activities they are involved in and the long history of J.R. Rix & Sons click here
