Mrs Miranda Markham, Her Majesty’s Deputy Lieutenant of Oxfordshire visited our new production facility in Longlands Road, Bicester this week and presented Philip Kirkham, CEO with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2020.
Now in its 54th year, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the country for British businesses who excel at international trade, innovation or sustainable development.
The award for International Trade for Outstanding Short-Term Growth in overseas sales recognises an increase of 152% over the three years to 30 September 2018; growth which continued into the following year which recorded record overall revenues of which 67% were international.
Mrs Markham was shown the Hardide coating process by the CEO and Chairman, Robert Goddard and toured the 20,000 sq. ft. facility before presenting the official certificate of award and a commemorative bowl at a socially distanced presentation lunch event for staff.
