What is the Queen’s Award?
There’s been cause for celebration at Jackloc this month, as we have just been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category. Such prestigious recognition is a huge reward for all the years we’ve spent developing our safety restrictors. With the highest profile seal of approval, we hope to further extend our already extensive customer base. Developing a product which saves lives on a global scale is an extremely worthy cause of which we are enormously proud.
Royal endorsement for exceptional innovation
The Queen’s Awards were established in 1966 as a way to reward excellence and innovation across a wide range of enterprises. Over the past half century, they have developed into the most respected recognition a company can achieve. The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are rewarded to businesses in four categories:
- International Trade
- Sustainable Development
- Promoting Opportunity (through social mobility)
Receiving the Queen’s Award is a valuable achievement for any business. A recent survey found that 76% of previous winners reported increased commercial value to their business while 55% said the award had brought new business opportunities. Entries are judged entirely on merit by an impartial committee including government officials, industry and commerce representatives, and trade union members.
Flying the flag for UK excellence
The Queen’s Award is an internationally recognised symbol of excellence. It has helped many companies to launch their products and services to a global audience. When a company receives the Queen’s Award it is valid for five years. During this time, organisations are entitled to fly the Queen’s Award flag at their main premises and use the emblem on their advertising material, stationery, and goods.
All employees of winning businesses may receive commemorative articles and the company will receive a presentational item bearing the emblem.
At Jackloc, we are extremely proud of our achievements. From humble beginnings, Jackloc has grown into an internationally recognised, award winning product, used in a wide range of commercial and residential buildings.
