As our assessors continue to review all the entries we received for the 2014 Awards, I thought you might like to read about some of the recent Award presentations made to our 2013 winners. After all, this could be you next year…
3M Buckley Innovation Centre
The Duke of Kent visited Huddersfield University yesterday to present 2 Queen’s Awards. The International Trade Award was given to the university for its work to attract more international students while the Enterprise Promotion Award was presented to the university’s Professor Liz Towns-Andrews for her work conceiving the new 3M Buckley Innovation Centre. The Duke toured the £12 million building as part of his visit.
The Duke also visited the Brighouse base of Millers Oils to unveil a plaque commemorating their Queen’s Award for International Trade, marking the company’s significant growth in exports over the past 3 years. The royal accolade also coincided with its 125th anniversary of lubricants manufacturing.
Simulation Systems Ltd
On Friday, Simulation Systems Ltd were presented with their Queen’s Award for Innovation by Lady Gass, the Lord Lieutenant of Somerset. This North Somerset business designs and manufactures software for our road networks and the Award is a massive boost to the 130 employees at the firm, which was established in 1979.
Hydrate for Health Ltd
Finally Mark Moran, Chief Executive of Bristol-based Hydrate for Health Ltd, was given the opportunity, back in July, to meet The Queen after his company’s Queen's Award for Enterprise Innovation win. The Award presentation was later made by the Lord Lieutenant of Bristol, Mary Prior MBE.
