REID wins the double at Queen’s Award for Enterprise

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise has recognised REID Lifting’s entrepreneurial spirit and innovation with not one, but TWO awards in 2013.

The awards, which are issued in response to outstanding achievement by UK businesses, were made to REID in the categories of Innovation and International Trade.

The former was in recognition of REID as the long-time leader in product design and manufacture in the lightweight, safe, portable lifting industry (setting the standard in markets such as water and wastewater, oil and gas, food processing and museums). Our more recent innovations include the PORTA-GANTRY 5000 and PORTA-GANTRY RAPIDE aluminium gantry crane products, which offer end-users unique, cost-effective, safe lifting solutions for many environments.

The second award, for international trade, put the spotlight on REID’s strategic thinking in developing a plan to devolpe international markets in order to mitigate the affects of the economic downturn. In 2008, REID identified export markets as offering the best chance for growth, focusing on markets where the health and safety benefits of its products were recognised.

REID’s French partner was encouraged to develop business in the French speaking markets of North Africa and the West Indies, the reseller network across Europe has grown from strength to strength and we have distributors established in the USA, Middle East and Australia as the company continues to expand its international reach.

Sales & Marketing Director, Phil Ellis added “We would particularly like to thank all our international resellers and distributors for helping us with the International Trade Award.”

The awards were presented in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace, where the Queen herself
