London based Aquapac International Ltd has scored a hat trick by receiving The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade – the UK’s highest accolade for business success – for the third time. Previous awards were The Queen’s Award for Exports and the The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation.
Aquapac designs, manufactures and sells 100% waterproof cases for electronic gadgets, including cameras, phones and iPads as well as bags to outdoor enthusiasts and professional services. We reviewed their tablet case last year – here – and one of their mobile phone cases here. In the past three years Aquapac has successfully sold to 61 countries and has demonstrated the highest level of excellence as a global brand. This award celebrates recognition from HM The Queen for Aquapac’s substantial growth in overseas earnings and in its commercial success.
Operating from a small factory in Lambeth, London the company has a total of 12 employees who turn out over 200,000 products per annum. Ninety three per cent of Aquapac’s products are 100% UK manufactured – a statistic to be proud of.
“We are delighted and honoured that our continuous dedication to producing quality innovative British products for the international market has been recognized by HM The Queen. Once the brainchild of three young windsurfers back in 1983 we have demonstrated over and over again that we are a leading and trusted global brand.”
Tim Turnbull, Chief Executive
