Queen’s Awards winners named

Congratulations to all small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) awarded in this year’s Queen’s Awards for Enterprise. 171 UK businesses have been recognised for their contribution to international trade, innovation, sustainable development and promoting opportunity, to coincide with the Queen’s 91st birthday.

This year’s winners include UK businesses leading the way in a broad range of industries – from green energy solutions and medical healthcare, to laser technology and digital marketing.

Commenting on the awards, Business Secretary Greg Clark says: "The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise highlights everything that’s great about UK business today.

"We have some of the best entrepreneurs and innovative minds in the world who are at the heart of small start-ups providing excellent customer service to larger businesses developing global solutions. Over 1 million new businesses have been created since 2010, all playing a vital role in creating jobs and driving growth across the UK.

"I’m extremely proud to see such a wealth of businesses being recognised today. Through our Industrial Strategy we will be building on the successes of these award winning businesses, helping to build a stronger, more outward looking and prosperous global Britain."
