Watson-Marlow receives Queen’s Award for Enterprise for its Qdos pumps
25 Apr 2018
Qdos, the chemical metering pump from Watson-Marlow Limited, has won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2018 which recognises world class innovation coupled with proof of five years of sustained sales.
The judges also acknowledged the company’s development of its Qdos pump technology, resulting in what is regarded as the world’s first self-contained, chemical metering pump.
Qdos pumps provide accurate, linear and repeatable metering and feature a single, no-tools component change with integral leak detection, reducing process downtime and lowering the overall cost of ownership, says the company.
Simon Nicholson, managing director of Watson-Marlow Limited, commented: “To win a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of Innovation is fantastic news for our business. It is a marker of the tremendous energy and commitment of our staff as well as their pursuit of the very best in product innovation. Every member of our team can celebrate his or her part in this prestigious win. We are truly honoured and delighted to find ourselves in receipt of a Queen’s Award for the second year in a row.”
Watson-Marlow Limited has headquarters in Falmouth in Cornwall and is a specialist manufacturer of peristaltic pumps and tubing. It is part of the Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group, a leader in peristaltic pumps and complete fluid path technologies.
The company is one of 230 businesses from across the UK to have been recognised for its contribution to innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity.
The new Qdos 20 pump will be on display at ACHEMA from 11-15 June, stand K79, Hall 8.
