Tenmat Ltd, a specialist manufacturer of highly technical composite materials, has announced that they have won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Outstanding Achievement in International Trade for the second year in a row. This year’s awarding was a result of over 20% year on year growth in export sales for the past three years.
Mr Julian Greenhalgh, Commercial Manager Wear Parts, stated “…This award for 2013 is not only a great achievement as a result of significant amount of dedication and hard work in a tough global market place, on an internal level we can confidently state that all employees in the company will have played a part in some way to this success. Therefore the whole workforce can give themselves a ‘pat on the back’ and a clear demonstration of the teamwork which is present within Tenmat.”
Mr Rupert Coggon, Business Manager of the Fire Protection department stated “The winning of this highly prestigious award for both Innovation and International Trade in consecutive years demonstrates the wide range of skills expertise and commitment within the Tenmat team and everyone is very proud of this achievement.”
In 2012, Tenmat achieved the award for innovation with groundbreaking developments in passive fire protection products creating innovative designs and improved fire safety. Amongst the products recognised were ventilated wall cavity barriers, designed to facilitate full ventilation of combustible wall cavities and to seal the cavity in the event of a fire, which will be used for the Commonwealth Games 2014 athlete’s village.
