The weighing and packing equipment company, represented by managing director Graham Clements, was congratulated by Queen Elizabeth II at a reception at Buckingham Palace. Ishida Europe received its award in the International Trade category to acknowledge the company’s "outstanding export successes" over a number of years, the company reported.
Established in 1966, the Queen‘s Award recognises companies for their outstanding entrepreneurship and economic performance. Ishida Europe is now eligible to use the Queen’s Award logo in its communications for the next five years.
Clements commented: "The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is a fantastic recognition for all Ishida employees who, with their hard work and dedication, have made a major contribution to our success. It also gives us further incentive to continue with our ambitious growth plans."
The Japanese company founded its European arm in 1985, as the first overseas subsidiary of Ishida, serving Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
