Innovation in healthcare provision and international trade expansions secures BioClad with a 2017 Queen’s Award.
BioClad is to receive the Queen’s Award in the category of International Trade, which has been officially announced on 21st April 2017 to celebrate the Queen’s birthday.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise celebrates outstanding achievement by UK businesses in the categories of innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity through social mobility.
BioClad, which launched in 2008, now employs 20 people and has marked a 2000 per cent growth in exporting since broadening its horizons into international trade in 2011. Markets include Australia, Canada, India, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Mexico. BioClad has recently opened an Australian subsidiary in Perth and is poised to enter European markets.
BioClad Director Lindsay McKenzie said: “To be able to display the prestigious Queen’s Award emblem alongside our brand is a real honour. It acts as a stamp of approval which will be recognised not only by UK customers but by our trade partners across the world who appreciate the quality British businesses uphold.”
