Cambridge Manufacturing Company Ltd has won The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.
The company wins the UK’s most prestigious business award for the first time for its outstanding achievement in overseas earnings growth with year-on-year increases in export sales calculated at 119% since 2008.
Cambridge Manufacturing Company Ltd’s (CMC), Managing Director, Eileen Skinner, said: “We are very proud to win The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade especially as 2012 is 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 25 million people to lose and maintain 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 is 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 has been a big factor in our success and winning this award is recognition at the highest level of what we have all achieved."
