Tracerco plays host to Queen's Awards office officials
Stephen Brice, Secretary to The Queen’s Awards Office, said:
“Over the years there have been many deserving winners in the North East, including five this year, and we’re sure there are many more companies across the region that have achievements in International Trade, Innovation or Sustainable Development worthy of recognition.
David Moore, Secretary to the Prime Minister’s Advisory Committee, who joined Stephen Brice in the region as part of a nationwide tour to meet past winners, added:
“We know that winners take great pride in their Awards and as we visit each region over the coming months we hope that more businesses will be inspired to follow them by applying for a 2009 Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
The first of Tracerco’s Queen’s Awards came in 2003 in the Innovation Category for its multi-award winning instrument; The TRACERCO Profiler™, Its ability to develop and implement measurement solutions, bringing them successfully to market rapidly has underpinned Tracerco’s success.
