SEACON Feature in the September Issue of Subsea & Offshore Service Magazine
Following the announcement made by SEACON (europe) Ltd back in April of this year as being named winners of a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, Managing Director, Mr. David Parker and Sales Director, Mr. Kevin Hall attended a special reception hosted by Her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace on Monday 14th July, 2014.
The Queen’s Award for International Trade is one of the highest accolades that a UK business can achieve and was made in recognition of SEACON (europe)’s continued growth and commitment to its international customers and year on year progress, not just in revenue but in customer relations and overall business development.
SEACON (europe) Ltd has seen its exports in the European market grow from just over £1 million in 2010 to over £2.6 million in 2012 and global sales rise from £9.1 million to over £12.6 million in the same period. This is coupled with the continued high profile commitment to product development based on customer needs and the needs of the market place in general. As a business SEACON (europe) Ltd is also very proud of the significant contribution its staff have had on the company’s performance, a contribution illustrated by low staff turnover and team spirit.
Only 160 Queen’s Awards were announced this year for outstanding business achievement in the field of International Trade, Innovation and Sustainable Development.
A further celebration and presentation of the award took place at SEACON (europe)’s facility in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk on Wednesday 30th July, 2014 where the Lord-Lieutenant for Norfolk, Mr. Richard Jewson attended and presented the official glassware. Also present was the Deputy Lieutenant, Mr. Richard Butler, the Mayor of the Borough of Great Yarmouth, Mrs. Marleen Fairhead, the Mayor’s Consort, Mr. Peter Fairhead, Mrs. Sharon Stone from the Lieutenancy Office based at County Hall, Norwich and Mr. John Rimmer, International Trade Advisor for East of England International.
