Queen’s Award is a royal treat in the jubilee year
2:05pm Wednesday 2nd May 2012 in Business
A WORCESTERSHIRE firm has received one of the UK’s top business accolades.
Droitwich-based Winsted has won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise by showing outstanding achievement in the international trade category and an overall growth of 82 per cent in the past three years.
From its Lovett Road premises, the American-owned firm designs, manufactures, assembles and installs specialist control room furniture, such as consoles, monitor walls and digital desks, for a range of customers across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
This is the first Queen’s Award for Winsted and general manager Terry Slough said: “Despite the tough current economic times, we are extremely proud to have successfully entered and grown new markets. We are delighted to accept this award during this very special Diamond Jubilee year.
“This achievement reflects the hard work put in by the whole Winsted team over a long period, as well as our range of innovative, high-quality products.”
The company was foun-ded in America in 1963 and has consistently pioneered console design and development. It opened in the UK in 1984 – a move which firmly established its international distribution network which now serves the European, Middle East and African markets.
