The award takes pride of place in the company’s already considerable array of awards including a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category awarded in 2010.
The company wins the International Trade award for outstanding achievement in overseas sales growth with an increase in exports over the last three years of 295%. Export sales now represent 44% of the company’s sales turnover.
ONELAN’s export strategy is in part a result of the need to counterbalance the potential impact of the recession on the domestic and European markets of external influences.
Says David Dalzell, ONELAN’s Managing Director “We are of course delighted to receive a second Queen’s Award. We have recognised that our product is international and we have put great effort into promoting it overseas. Success comes sometimes from unlikely territories, but overall the international response has been very pleasing. ”
