GJD, the UK manufacturers and designers of electronic perimeter detection and LED illuminators, has been awarded the Queens Award for Enterprise for International Trade, the UK accolade for international business success.
Her Majesty The Queen has approved the Prime Minister’s recommendation for GJD to be honoured with this award owing to the company’s growth in export trade over the past six years. The Lord-Lieutenant of the County, the Queen’s local representative will visit GJD’s premises in Heywood, Greater Manchester later in the year to present the award. Two representatives from GJD will also attend a reception at Buckingham Palace later in the year.
Mark Tibbenham, pictured left, Managing Director of GJD said: “This is a fantastic achievement for everyone at GJD, especially in this historic year as Her Majesty The Queen celebrates the sapphire anniversary of her reign. We all feel very humbled and immensely proud to have won a Queens Award for Enterprise in International Trade. It is amazing recognition and high praise for everyone at GJD who always put in so much hard work and dedication to make GJD what it is today.
“This is the most prestigious award that GJD has ever won and it will further ensure our respected position within the security industry both in the UK and worldwide. We thank our loyal distribution network, customers and partners for their ongoing support, without them this would not have been possible.”
For 35 years, GJD has been designing and manufacturing security products to identify and validate alerts, identify false alarm signals and so aid the call-out of responders.
Winning a Queens Award means that GJD can inscribe The Queens Award Emblem on letters, advertising, marketing or packaging for five years. Visit: http://www.gjd.co.uk/.
