Watson-Marlow is celebrating receipt of its second Queen’s Award for Industry awarded to its Cornwall-based factory in just two years.
The company was formally presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2018 by the Duke of Kent this week at the Falmouth site.
It won the trophy, originally announced to mark The Queen’s 92nd birthday in April, for its Qdos technology which is billed as the world’s first self-contained, chemical metering pump.
The Duke of Kent visited Watson-Marlow to present the commemorative award and was given a tour of the firm’s manufacturing facilities.
Watson-Marlow Limited is part of the Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group, a global producer of peristaltic technology and associated fluid path technologies.
Managing director Simon Nicholson said of the achievement: “The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2018 rewards world class innovation coupled with proof of five years sustained sales. We are absolutely delighted to receive this prestigious accolade on behalf of Watson-Marlow Limited.
“It is a true marker of the energy, commitment and excellence that is shared by all those involved in the Qdos pumps’ development. We are also extremely proud that our factory in Cornwall is in receipt of a Queen’s Award for the second year in a row.”
