ICD Europe Get Ready to Welcome Royal Representative


In April this year, we were thrilled to win the Queen’s Award for International Trade, in recognition of our exporting achievements.

On 28th November, we’ll be playing host to the Lord Lieutenant of South Yorkshire, Dame Hilary Chapman, who will present the award in a short ceremony, before going on a tour of our newly extended premises.

The formal proceedings will be followed by a company-wide celebration for staff, customers, suppliers, friends and family, involving games, food and refreshments.

Established in 1965, the Queen’s Awards are the highest official UK awards for British businesses. Granted annually on the Queen’s birthday, the awards recognise the ‘highest levels of excellence’ and ‘outstanding achievement’ in UK business. Winners of the International Trade category must display three consecutive years of export sales growth.

Winners of the awards, which are valid for five years, may fly the Queen’s Awards flag at their main premises and use the awards logo on their marketing materials.

This year, 232 businesses representing every part of the United Kingdom and a range of sectors were recognised by Her Majesty The Queen. It was an excellent year for Yorkshire businesses, with a total of 22 accolades being given to firms in the region.

Wayne Hawkes, Managing Director of ICD Europe, commented:

‘We all feel incredibly honoured to have been recognised in the Queen’s Awards this year, and we are proud and saddened in equal measure to have been among the last recipients during her lifetime. I look forward to receiving the award and celebrating this achievement with the ICD Europe team.’
