Detectortesters win third prestigious queen’s award for enterprise
Employing over 100 people and with sales to over 140 countries, Detectortesters solutions (including products from the Solo and Testifire ranges) receive global use by fire professionals carrying out functional testing and maintenance of fire detection systems. In the last six years, the company’s unique product offering and investment in personnel has supported International sales growth of 121%, which today’s award announcement recognises.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the UK’s highest accolade for business success, with Her Majesty the Queen personally approving the winners. The award is particularly special for Detectortesters as it marks the third time the business has been recognised in this way – having previous been honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade in 2003 and a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation in 2014.
On news of winning the award, Managing Director Robert Campbell reacted:
"It’s a tremendous feeling for the company to have been honoured in this way; to have now received such recognition three times is extremely special. Winning our first award was a great achievement the second, and now third, award proves our commitment to what we do and acknowledges the efforts of everyone involved in the business."
Philip Bartlam, Sales and Marketing Director added:
"I would like to thank our customers and partners for the significant role they have played in this award. We are nothing without our customers and we are lucky to have a loyal, global customer base who believe in us and challenge us to deliver the tools they need to ensure fire safety standards are developed and maintained."
