Winsted wins second Royal award
Leading control room furniture manufacturer Winsted today announces that it has won the Queens Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category. This prestigious accolade marks the second consecutive year Winsted has been recognised in the Queen's Awards for Enterprise, having won its first in 2012.
Winsted's achievement comes as the company celebrates its 50th anniversary and introduces two major new products into its expanding range of equipment solutions, which include consoles, media storage equipment and monitor.
Generally accepted as the UK's most prestigious recognition of outstanding business performance, the Queens Awards are made in honour of the Queen's birthday and Winsted's recognises the company's substantial growth in revenues from international markets over a 3-year period.
Terry Shough, General Manager at Winsted comments: "I am thrilled to see our recent success recognised in this manner. During recent years we have worked hard to distinguish ourselves in the global market-it's our depth of knowledge as a specialist team that has given us a clear commercial advantage, and sets us apart from our competitors."
"To win the award once was a great achievement, but a second time in succession is an amazing result, and it is a testament to the hard work, commitment and professionalism of all our staff, distributors and suppliers," he adds " The award reflects the company's commitment to exporting excellence and the importance that we as a company give to exporting throughout the world."
The esteemed Queen's Awards are bestowed annually to recognise and reward outstanding achievement by UK companies, selected by The Queen on the advice of the Prime Minister, assisted by an advisory committee that includes representatives of Government, industry and commerce.
