We’re thrilled to announce our second Queen’s Award win. This highly sought-after award is a mark of quality for British businesses. A seal of approval that speaks volumes about a company. To win the award twice is a great honour.
Since 1984 the company evolved from manufacturing polythene films, then used the waste from this to produce plastic cores, which led to polymer pallets, and the invention of the first industrial strength polymer guard rail in 2001. A revolutionary type of guardrail designed to flex, absorb impact forces, then reform to its original shape. A transformative milestone in the evolution of workplace safety. We have since released next generation guard rails with more technology, more engineering design, more safety features.
We last won the Queen’s Award in 2014, but we never stand still and since then have strived to improve workplace safety even further. Our Innovation Centre in West Yorkshire now proudly recruits polymer physicists, design engineers, and electronics engineers; it is the humble birthplace of some of the most advanced polymer technology and cutting-edge safety engineering in the world. We invest millions of pounds in custom-built machinery to ensure quality and attention to detail is inherent throughout every element of the process.
Our latest Queen’s Award is for outstanding achievement in international trade. We are passionate about workplace safety and actively share our passion and experience worldwide, striving to create better safety conditions for ordinary workers in every workplace, in every industry, on every continent. With this drive, we also created the world’s first and only official code of practice for workplace guard rails; partnering with the BSI to create PAS 13.
Scientifically engineered safety is the future of workplace protection and we are driven to ensure workplaces can be better protected. For our efforts to be recognised again with Royal approval inspires us to keep raising standards, guiding the world’s workplaces to a safer future.
