The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise celebrate and encourage excellence in UK business. The awards honour achievements across three categories: international trade, sustainable development and innovation.
Porvair has increased year-on-year growth in sales of exported products over the past three years. Since 2011, the company has seen its export sales rise by 140%, with exports accounting for 69% of total sales from its UK operations.
This increase in exports has been due to the company’s success in markets such as coal gasification in Asia, bioscience and nuclear in the USA and general industrial process filtration in Europe. The group’s top export markets are the USA, India, South Korea and Germany.
“It is an honour for our company to receive this award and to be recognised for our success in exporting our products manufactured in the UK. Whilst growing international business can be challenging, we have found a significant appetite for quality products manufactured by our skilled and dedicated staff in the UK,” said Porvair’s managing director Tom Liddell.
“We believe the award represents a significant milestone for the business, one that will serve to enhance our reputation at home and overseas. We anticipate further, sustainable growth in the years to come,” added Liddell.
Porvair Filtration Group, which has supplied the aerospace, nuclear, energy, process and bioscience industries with performance-driven filtration equipment for almost 30 years, manufactures in the UK and USA, with a network of sales offices and distribution channels throughout the world.
