This prestigious accolade marks the second consecutive year Winsted has been recognised in the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, having won its first in 2012.Accomplishments considered by the judging panel when bestowing this accolade on Winsted include growing its export sales over the last three years, and increased overseas distribution.
General manager Terry Shough said: “I am thrilled to see our recent success recognised in this manner. During recent years we have worked hard to distinguish ourselves in the global market-it’s our depth of knowledge as a specialist team that has given us a clear commercial advantage, and sets us apart from our competitors.”
“To win the award once was a great achievement, but a second time in succession is an amazing result, and it is a testament to the hard work, commitment and professionalism of all our staff, distributors and suppliers,”
“We have been delighted with the continued growth and success we’ve seen over the past three years and are now looking forward to building on this and our Queen’s Award achievement in the future.”
