On November 7th ETI were extremely proud to be officially presented with our fourth Queen’s Award for Enterprise, this our first in the category for Innovation. The award was presented by the Lord-Lieutenant of West Sussex, Mrs Susan Pyper. We were also thrilled to have the Mayor of Worthing Paul Baker along with Mayoress Sandra Baker in attendance for this special occasion.
The presentation ceremony was attended by a number of ETI’s staff, suppliers and colleagues.
Alex Blows from the Research & Development Team along with Marketing Manager Luisa Coates attended a drinks reception for all the 2018 Queen’s Award winners, in the presence of HRH Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace back in June of this year.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the UK’s most prestigious awards for business performance which recognise and reward outstanding achievement by UK companies. The Awards are made each year by the Queen, on the advice of the Prime Minister who is assisted by an Advisory Committee that includes representatives of Government, Industry & Commerce, together with the Trade Unions.
On receiving the news of the award, Peter Webb MBE, Managing Director of Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd commented: “I feel immensely proud and honoured to have received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for a fourth time. We have always prioritised investment in research, development and innovation and the Queen’s Award for Innovation recognises our continued commitment to providing our customers with pioneering temperature measuring solutions using the latest technology. I am lucky to have such a dedicated and supportive workforce, who without their hard work and commitment this honour would not have been possible. By keeping our manufacturing and Research & Development in the UK we have been able to support our local economy whilst successfully continuing to grow the business.”
