Great Yarmouth, UK, based Applied Acoustic Engineering Ltd has won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category, for a second time. The Award is recognition of its outstanding achievement in boosting export revenues over three years of continuous growth. This excellent performance has been made possible through technical innovation and the sustained support of a strong network of overseas representatives.
“This is wonderful news for us,” said Managing Director Adam Darling, “I’m pleased for everyone in the company because the recognition of a Queen’s Award is about as good as it gets in business.”
We have competitors all over the world, so it’s great to know that what we do in terms of engineering excellence, customer service and fast response technical support really pays off. It’s a true team effort.”
Applied Acoustics designs and manufactures underwater acoustic positioning, tracking and survey equipment sold mainly to the commercial offshore energy market but increasingly sales have been secured with oceanographic research institutions and naval defence industries. The company exported to over 61 different countries over the past three years, including significant orders received from Japan, USA and Germany. New agency agreements have been established in Turkey, Mexico, Brazil and Australia.
The Queens Award is a highly prized recognition of business achievement requiring an exceptional overall standard of commercial success and corporate responsibility. Internationally recognised, it is universally regarded as one of the most prestigious business accolades in the world.
