Tray sealing specialist PROSEAL UK is especially thrilled to have won the Queen’s Award for International Trade as this is its 20th anniversary year. The company received the honour in recognition of its outstanding continuous growth over the past six years.
Based in Adlington, Cheshire, Proseal designs and manufactures high quality automatic tray sealing machines, conveyor systems, and sealing tools for the food industry and other applications. The award comes after a period in which Proseal achieved strong sales in both its home and export markets, creating many new jobs in the process that have increased the number of employees to over 300 in the UK and nearly 400 worldwide.
The Proseal USA and Proseal Australia subsaidiary businesses, along with a growing network of 13 global distributors, have helped Proseal gain an impressive 52% of sales in export markets in 2017. The company also enjoys strong business in mainland Europe, and has developed new markets in Southeast Asia, China, Turkey, North Africa, South Africa and South America.
As a result of these successes, Proseal now has a presence on every continent except Antarctica.
Proseal’s impressive performance has been supported by the company’s ongoing investment in research and development, which has seen the introduction of models that have broken new ground in tray sealing technology and opened up new applications. Just as important has been the company’s continuing investment in its people. Training has been a key element of the company’s operation from the beginning, with comprehensive programmes that have seen many recruits promoted to senior positions over the years.
“We’re honoured and delighted to have received the Queen’s Award – and the fact that it comes this year makes it all the sweeter,” said Steve Malone, Proseal’s director, who, together with Robert Hargreaves, founded the company in 1998.
“Our success will only encourage us even more to keep innovating and exploring new opportunities.”
