Stirling Lloyd, manufacturers of the Safetrack range of highways maintenance products, has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in recognition of its continued international success.
Considered the UK’s most prestigious business honour, the Queen’s Award is awarded to businesses who show outstanding achievements in their field and has a specific focus on international trade, innovation and sustainable development.
Based in Knutsford, Cheshire and with offices in the United States and the Middle East, Stirling Lloyd now sells its UK manufactured materials into more than 50 countries worldwide, all of which helped it triumph in the Queen’s Award international trade category.
Exports director John Volpicelli (pictured right with Ned Birley, export business development manager) said: “We are delighted to win this prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for the first time, recognition of our products’ reputation for excellence, quality and long term performance on the international stage, and for our dedication to customer care.
“Our company’s overall expansion continues to be driven by export sales which have seen substantial growth, especially over the last three years, and now account for over 60% of our total business. This award is just reward for everyone involved in that success.”
The company will be officially presented with the award this autumn.
