Exhibition and display specialist manufacturer Tecna Display is celebrating being awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for a second time, having received the first in 2012.
Tecna Display was awarded the accolade for outstanding achievement in the category of international trade.
The award represents the highest honour that a UK business can receive. They are awarded annually on the Queen’s birthday.
Jonathan Evitt, managing director of Tecna Display, said: “The Queen’s Award is a huge honour and we are absolutely delighted to have it for a second time for our achievements in international trade. We were the first company in the display and exhibition systems industry to ever win a Queen’s Award, which shows what an achievement it was”
“Since receiving that first award we have significantly increased our presence in both the US and Europe and our export turnover has been growing significantly year on year. We now sell into 28 countries and they sell into a further 12, so we are now active in 40 countries. Exports comprise about 65% of our turnover and are increasing.
“We have added two new products to the portfolio which are creating a great deal of interest – the Affinity and Litebox systems, which build on the proven success of the our T3 ‘twist n’ lock’ system. We also had our audit for the new ISO quality certification this year and passed with flying colours.”
