Cadtek customer, Joseph Joseph, have been crowned with this year’s Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.
Operating since 1966, her Majesty The Queen makes the Awards on the advice of the Prime Minister, who is assisted by an Advisory Committee that includes representatives of Government, industry and commerce, and the trade unions. Each year they are announced on 21st April, the Queen’s birthday.
The three categories are for outstanding achievement in International Trade, Innovation or Sustainable Development.
Richard Joseph, co-founder, said, “This award means a lot to Antony and myself and the business as a whole. It’s a true testament of how the hard work of our teams in the UK and abroad has paid off and shows how far we’ve come. The business growth just wouldn’t have been possible without having some of the best designers, sales teams, creatives and operations specialists in the industry on board.”
