Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd is presented with Highly Prestigious Queen’s Award for Innovation
On Wednesday 7th November Susan Pyper the Lord-Lieutenant of West Sussex, accompanied by a number of distinguished guests including Caroline Nicholls the West Sussex High Sheriff and the Mayor of Worthing Paul Baker, visited Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd.’s (ETI) manufacturing facility in Easting Close, Worthing, and presented the company with their prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation. It is the fourth time in six years that ETI have received The Queens Award, and the Lord-Lieutenant commended the company on its outstanding achievement, in her address.
The Queen's Awards for Enterprise are the UK's most prestigious awards for business performance which recognise and reward outstanding achievement by UK companies. The Awards are made each year by the Queen, on the advice of the Prime Minister who is assisted by an Advisory Committee that includes representatives of Government, Industry & Commerce, together with the Trade Unions.
On receiving the news of the award, Peter Webb MBE, Managing Director of Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd commented: "We are immensely proud and honoured to have received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for a fourth time. We have always prioritised investment in research, development and innovation and the Queen’s Award for Innovation recognises our continued commitment to providing our customers with pioneering temperature measuring solutions using the latest technology. I am lucky to have such a dedicated and supportive workforce, who without their hard work and commitment this honour would not have been possible. By keeping our manufacturing and Research & Development in the UK we have been able to support our local economy whilst successfully continuing to grow the business and have recently invested £500,000 in a new R & D facility in Dominion Way, Worthing.”
