HCS wins The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade
Maven investee, HCS Control Systems, has won a coveted Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category in recognition of the company’s sustained success in overseas expansion.
To be awarded the Queen's Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade a company must show a substantial and sustained increase in export earnings over three consecutive 12-month periods, to a level which is outstanding for the products and services concerned, and for the size of the organisation.
As the UK’s most prestigious business accolades, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise highlight outstanding achievement in the fields of innovation, international trade and sustainable development. Established in 1965, they are the highest official UK awards for British businesses. HCS Control Systems successfully demonstrated to the judging panel that its strategic diversification into new growth markets and geographies across the globe deserved recognition at the very highest level.
Brett Lestrange, HCS's Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade represents an independent validation of our achievements. We are extremely proud of this award, for a small company like HCS to receive such recognition is fantastic. Over the last few years we have worked hard to successfully expand our international client base, highlighting our commitment to high quality, cost competitive products and being responsive to our customers' needs."
