Warwick-based manufacturer 3P innovation has received its second Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
This latest award is in recognition for British excellence in International Trade, and follows on from its first Queen’s Award for Innovation last year.
Internationally recognised, the prestigious business awards date back to 1966.
The company, which is based at Tournament Fields, works with global pharma and medical device businesses to help develop their products, devices and production processes.
Before the pandemic, there was little public interest into the manufacture of asthma inhalers, injection pens, vaccines, PPE or diagnostic tests - this is 3P’s expertise.
Having helped develop equipment to make existing cancer treatments, 3P’s engineers are also active in the exciting ‘cell & gene’ sector, which could lead to cures for cancer in the future.
These Queen’s Awards build upon last year’s success for 3P: shortly after launching a national visor initiative, which saw the manufacturer donate more than 40,000 visors to frontline staff, the company was awarded with a UK Business Hero stamp by the British Chambers of Commerce.
The engineering firm ended the year on a high note after announcing their transition to employee ownership.
Commenting on this success, 3P’s founder and managing director, Tom Bailey said: "In a year that has been challenging for everyone, the team at 3P innovation have worked harder than ever to achieve remarkable international growth.
"This has provided us with further security and stability in an ever-changing market affected by Covid, and it’s great to see that UK innovation and international growth within the manufacturing sector are being recognised by the Queen’s Awards."
