Cambridge wins Queen's Award
In 2012, CWP (then known as Cambridge Manufacturing Company Ltd) won The Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade.
CWP's Managing Director, Eileen Skinner said: "We were very proud to win The Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade especially as 2012 was also Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee year. The growth in our export sales since 2008 has been built around a very successful UK business model that encourages and empowers individuals to be entrepreneurial. In partnership with our distributors around the world, we have taken this model and successfully exported it to many international markets.
"As such, we have not only helped more than 30million people to lose and manage their weight, but also empowered many people in both developed and developing countries to realise their dream of owning and running their own businesses. In Vietnam, for example, many of the Consultants are earning their own income for the first time. This has had a direct impact, not only on their families, but also on the wider communities in which they live.
"Winning this award was also a testament to all our staff in Corby who have had to deal with company turnover growing by more than 400% since 2005.Their commitment to quality and excellence was a big factor in our success and winning this award is recognition at the highest level of what we have all achieved."
A Company with Heart
Cambridge Weight Plan was also shortlisted for the Company with Heart Award at the DSA awards ceremony in 2013 and we were delighted to announce…that we won!
Cambridge was chosen as the winner of this prestigious award because of the numerous international research projects that we have funded, our dedication to reducing the impact we have on the environment and, more importantly, the positive impact Cambridge has on lives of millions of people around the world, through our UK Consultants, international distributors and more recently through healthcare practitioners using Cambridge Pro800.
