Congratulations are in order for Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd, based in Worthing, as they’ve been granted a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, within the category of Innovation. This is the fourth time ETI have been acknowledged for their outstanding achievements, since gaining their first award in 2012.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the UK’s most prestigious awards for business performance which recognise and reward the achievements of UK companies.
The Awards are made each year by the Queen, on the advice of the Prime Minister who is assisted by an Advisory Committee that includes representatives of Government, Industry & Commerce, together with the Trade Unions.
ETI announced this morning (Monday 23rd April) that they have received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, which will be officially given its award, later this summer at a ceremony at their Worthing headquarters.
On receiving the news of the award, Peter Webb MBE, Managing Director of Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd commented: “I feel immensely proud and honoured to have received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for a fourth time. We have always prioritised investment in research, development and innovation and the Queen’s Award for Innovation recognises our continued commitment to providing our customers with pioneering temperature measuring solutions using the latest technology. I am lucky to have such a dedicated and supportive workforce, who without their hard work and commitment this honour would not have been possible. By keeping our manufacturing and Research & Development in the UK we have been able to support our local economy whilst successfully continuing to grow the business.”
