The Queen’s Award does an excellent job of recognising British ingenuity - which is crucial in encouraging a culture of inventiveness. Dyson has been fortunate to win the Queen’s Award on two occasions. The Queen’s Award magazine allows us to emphasise our commitment to developing new technology.

JCB have been privileged to win the Queen’s Award on a record-breaking number of occasions - often twice in the same year. We have found that the Queen’s Award Magazine completes the package, with a prestigious international publication in which to promote our company’s success to leading decision-makers.

The prestige of being winners of the Queen’s Awards has opened many doors for the company all over the world. “A Queen’s Award endorses our commitment to quality and innovation, and gives our customers the confidence to build long term relationships based on trust and respect,” says Chief Executive, Jonathan Flint.
“Winning a Queen’s Award gives us the perfect opportunity to get maximum benefit from our PR and marketing programmes,” says the Group Director of Communications, Lynn Shepherd. “A Queen’s Award logo on our website or literature can be valued in very real terms, and is worth all the work involved in submitting an application. We are very proud that our association with the Queen’s Award raises the profile of science and high technology, and delighted that the Queen’s Awards help to raise our profile in our chosen markets.”
Winners of 11 Queen's Awards including 5 for the Nanoscience group
It gives me great pleasure to congratulate, on behalf of the Bank of England, the winners of the 2009 Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in the Innovation, International Trade and Sustainable Development categories and the recipients of the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise Promotion.
The Queen’s Awards provide an opportunity to celebrate and encourage excellence in British business. The 2009 winners have achieved outstanding results in their respective fields against the backdrop of difficult economic conditions. Their achievements in the innovation, international trade, sustainable development and enterprise promotion areas have made a notable contribution to the UK economy. The example they set will, I hope, be an inspiration to others.
The Bank of England exists to ensure monetary stability and to contribute to financial stability. Achieving these goals is the most useful thing that I and the Monetary Policy Committee can do to promote enterprise and foster conditions for businesses to invest for the future. That is why the Bank has responded decisively to the economic downturn and sharp contraction in world trade, by cutting Bank Rate and undertaking a programme of asset purchases to boost the supply of money and credit. Against this backdrop, I offer the 2009 Award winners my warmest congratulations.
With all best wishes.
