Cambridge, UK (July 25, 2011)--Prism Media Products Limited was recently presented with the Queen's Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade.
The presentation was made by Mr. Hugh Duberly, Lord-Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, and took place at the company's headquarters in Stretham. Also present were Jim Paice, MP for South East Cambridgeshire, and Mark Lloyd, chief executive of Cambridgeshire County Council.
Graham Boswell, sales director of Prism Media Products Limited, whose brands include Prism Sound, SADiE and Imerge, expressed his thanks to everyone in the company, saying, "This Award would not have been possible without the hard work and effort put in by our staff and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them. I'm really proud of them all."
Mr. Duberly pointed out that a Queen's Award is equivalent to an individual receiving an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours. "As Her Majesty's representative, I would like to congratulate Prism Media Products on receiving this Award," he said. "This company is at the sharp end in terms of electronic engineering, and what you do is enormously important to the ongoing success of UK PLC."
The Queen's Award for Enterprise is the highest official U.K. award for British business. The awards are made on the advice of the Prime Minister and his Advisory Committee, which comprises leading individuals from industry, commerce, trade unions and Government. HRH Queen Elizabeth II then confers them on her birthday, April 21st.
In order to be considered for a Queen's Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade, a company must show a substantial and sustained increase in export earnings over three consecutive 12-month periods, to a level that is outstanding for the products and services concerned, and for the size of the organization. Prism Media Products Ltd. has experienced six years of sustained sales growth and has more than doubled overseas sales, with 66 percent of its sales now going to customers abroad.
