Our award, in the innovation category, was for the development of our Bloccs’ waterproof cast and wound dressing protectors – the first consumer product to be designed, manufactured and marketed by Precision Dippings Manufacturing.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are for outstanding achievement by UK businesses in the categories of: innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity through social mobility. The selection process is rigorous and highly competitive and each award is valid for five years.
Queen’s Award winners are invited to a Royal reception at Buckingham Palace, hosted by Her Majesty the Queen. Our directors Doug King and Kate Richards went along – very proud to have received such an incredible honour.
HRH The Duke of Kent visited our offices in Yate to present the award. He was joined by the High Sheriff of Gloucestershire Countess Bathurst, Mayor of Yate Councillor Tony Davis and other invited guests – all of whom had a tour of the factory and met our staff. A very memorable occasion that we were all thrilled to be part of.
“We were delighted when the Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire, Dame Janet Trotter, described our Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation as an ‘Oscar of the business world’.” Doug King
