Recognition for companies manufacturing in the UK in prestigious annual awards
I was very pleased to see that two of the brands featuring in our directory have been given a Queen’s Award for Enterprise this year – an honour bestowed on British companies that are considered ‘outstanding in their field’.
The Cambridge Satchel Company, who make all of their bags in the UK, won a much-deserved award for International Trade, in recognition of their contribution towards exports. The company, which was started 5 years ago by Julie Deane, currently sells to over 110 countries, generating over £5m in export sales.
Tiffany Rose are a stylish maternitywear company committed to making all of their products in Britain. The company has seen an impressive 137% growth in overseas sales over the last 3 years , which more than earns them their award for International Trade. Tiffany London, founder and creative director of Tiffany Rose, said: “Given our 100% commitment to quality manufacturing in Britain it’s a huge honour for us to receive this award from Her Majesty the Queen.”
Wonderful news and well deserved!
