21 Apr Photocentric win Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2018
We are delighted to announce Photocentric has been awarded the prestigious honour of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade, 2018!
The award was given in recognition of Photocentric’s 3-year growth in overseas sales success.
Paul Holt, our founder, said: “This is wonderful news for our business and we are very proud to be a winner of this prestigious award. We have always tried to innovate with new product ideas and being in a niche sector has meant that we have had to export to gain sales growth.
Over the last 5 years, we have seen our sales grow from £2.5 million to £5.7 million, with exports rising from £1.7 million to over £4 million – over 70% of total sales. Our US subsidiary has further sales of over $3 million. Our innovation in photopolymer for all areas of our business and the expansion in our range of 3D resin printers mean that we are very excited for the future worldwide growth of the business.
Following the footsteps from our Queen’s Award for Enterprise, Innovation in 2016, we are truly proud to accept this second accolade. We would like to thank our distributors and customers worldwide who have all played their part in helping Photocentric achieve such wonderful awards.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the UK’s most prestigious business awards, recognising and celebrating business excellence across the UK.
