Fly the flag for Shropshire

Businesses across Shropshire have been urged to apply for one of the country’s most prestigious awards – and build on the region’s proud track record of success.

Applications are now open for the 2022 Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, which showcase outstanding achievements in the fields of international trade, innovation, sustainable development and promoting opportunity (through social mobility).

Four Telford-based organisations – Aviramp, Landau, Reconomy and Scanning Pens – were successful in winning the 2021 awards in a hugely successful year for the county.

The winners are invited to a Royal reception at Buckingham Palace, entitled to fly the Queen’s Award flag at their main office and use the emblem on their products and marketing materials for five years.

The Lord-Lieutenant, the Queen’s representative, presents each of the successful businesses with a crystal trophy. Lord-Lieutenant of Shropshire Anna Turner urged businesses to apply for this year’s awards.

“Our county has a wealth of successful activity which deserves to be rewarded and brought to the attention of a wider audience. The awards and the QAE logo are recognised globally, and the Royal Seal of approval is a tremendous honour for any business or organisation to have. And regardless of whether you win an award, completing the application process is an excellent opportunity to scrutinise your business with a critical eye and focus on new ideas.”

To be eligible for a Queen’s Award, a company must be based in the UK, have at least two full time UK employees or part-time equivalents, file its company tax returns with HMRC, be a self-contained enterprise that markets its own products or services under its own management and demonstrate strong corporate social responsibility.
