It's the triple! - MooD wins the Queen's Award for Enterprise
MooD International is again celebrating after being named - for the third time - winners of a Queen's Award for Enterprise, the UK's highest accolade for business success.
Building on the recognition achieved through Awards in 2004 and 2010 for Innovation, the company has now been recognised for its contribution to International Trade, having demonstrated "substantial growth in overseas earnings and in commercial success, sustained over not less than three years, to levels which are outstanding for the goods or services concerned and for the size of the entrant's operations."
CEO George Davies commented, "Winning a Queen's Award is the most prestigious tribute a UK business can receive: they are only awarded to companies that demonstrate the highest level of excellence. We are honoured by the award for International Trade, which demonstrates our success in developing international sales based upon our previously-celebrated innovative products. This third award is particularly important to us as it demonstrates both our continued evolution and our ability to drive value in a period that has been extremely tough for many businesses."
Approximately 140 Queen's Awards have been announced this year across the fields of International Trade, Innovation and Sustainable Development. As a Queen's Award winner, the company can expect an invitation to attend a special reception at Buckingham Palace with Her Majesty The Queen later this year.
Davies adds: "This is a very exciting time for MooD International. We have experienced an extraordinarily successful start to the year, and as a company we are going from strength to strength. This year we expect to recruit in excess of 20 new people to the team as we continue to build on the breadth and depth of our innovation. Over the summer we will celebrate the Queen's Award in style with a party for the team."
