On September 18th everyone here at the ETI headquarters celebrated receiving our third Queen’s Award for Enterprise. The presentation ceremony was attended by many of ETI’s export customers that were also visiting for the ETI Export Conference 2017.
The award was presented by the Lord-Lieutenant of West Sussex, Mrs Susan Pyper. We were also thrilled to have MP Tim Loughton and Mayor of Worthing Alex Harman in attendance for this special occasion.
Her Majesty the Queen awarded ETI with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise within the category of International Trade, for manufacturing and supplying electronic thermometers and temperature probes to worldwide markets. This highly regarded award reflects a significant achievement for the company and its network of overseas distributors.
The Queen's Awards for Enterprise are the UK's most prestigious awards for business performance which recognise and reward outstanding achievement by UK companies. The Awards are made each year by the Queen, on the advice of the Prime Minister who is assisted by an Advisory Committee that includes representatives of Government, Industry & Commerce, together with the Trade Unions.
On receiving the news of the award, Peter Webb MBE, Managing Director of Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd commented: "I feel immensely proud and honoured to have received the Queens Award for Enterprise for a third time. I am lucky to have such a dedicated and supportive workforce, who without their hard work and commitment this honour would not have been possible. By keeping our manufacturing and Research & Development in the UK we have been able to support our local economy whilst successfully continuing to grow the business.”
Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd have been trading since 1983 and is the UK’s leader in the manufacture and design of electronic thermometers and temperature probes. Over the past five years, ETI's worldwide export sales have increased by over 96%, with their primary export markets being North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia.
