Queen's Awards for Enterprise recipients revealed

21st April 2010

The Queen's Awards for Enterprise 2010 have recognised the achievements of 143 companies across the UK.

Firms from a wide range of sectors including architecture, construction, manufacturing, finance and pharmaceuticals have been included in the accolades, which are considered among the country's most prestigious honours for business success.

Small companies such as Edinburgh-based The Innis and Gunn Brewing Company, which employs just three people, stem cell bank Future Health Technologies and medical instrument manufacturer Surgical Innovations have been included in the awards.

Household names are also well represented, with food company Walkers Shortbread, folding bicycle manufacturer Brompton Bicycle and the FA Premier League receiving honours.

'Winners of the Queen's Awards enjoy widespread respect from their peers, a company visit by a royal representative during the year to present a crystal bowl and a special reception at Buckingham Palace in July,' the organisers revealed.

Of the 143 companies recognised, 95 won awards for international trade, 38 for innovation and ten for sustainable development, while 11 individuals were given the Queen's Award for Enterprise Promotion for attempting to encourage entrepreneurship.

BBC Worldwide, JCB Earthmovers, Nissan Motor Manufacturing (UK) and Tudor Rose International were among the recipients of last year's accolades.
