Published: 26 April, 2016
Polypipe, one of Europe’s largest and most innovative manufacturers of plastic piping systems for the movement of water and air, is set to join in HM The Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations thanks to the receipt of a prestigious award.
The annual Queen’s Awards for Enterprise reward excellence by businesses in a number of fields, with Polypipe hailed for its exceptional work in increasing export activity. The company was recognised by the Queen’s Award team for its work in driving increased sales across the globe, not least in the Middle East, where Polypipe recently solidified several years of growth in the region with the opening of its first overseas Technical Centre in October 2015.
Vince Fenson, business development director at Polypipe, said: “It’s truly an honour to be recognised by HM The Queen and the Queen’s Award team for the work that Polypipe staff have put into increasing our export activity.
“We were keen to grow during the recession and recognised the opportunities that exporting offers. The combination of our sector experience, design expertise, 20,000 strong product line and innate understanding of the needs of our customers means that we’re ideally placed to continue this growth in years to come.”
