Colortrac, a leading innovator in the field of wide format scanning technology, has been awarded the prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise 2012 in the category of International Trade.
The Queen's Awards for Enterprise is an awards programme for British businesses and other organizations that excel at international trade, innovation or sustainable development. They are the highest official UK awards for British businesses and the scheme was established as The Queen's Award to Industry by a royal warrant of 30th November 1965.
Expanding on the implications of The Queen's Awards for Enterprise, Colortrac Executive Director Peter Brown noted that “Clearly the worldwide economic downturn has had an adverse impact on the performance of many markets and businesses over the past three years.
Furthermore, Peter said "I am delighted that our customers have seen the benefits of the quality, innovation and creative thinking put into the SmartLF large format scanners and SmartWorks imaging software that we produce. Customers understand how these technical innovations and SmartWorks software features can increase their business productivity and performance. We have a rapidly increasing order book which, combined with planned new product introductions, should provide us with continuing profitable growth in our business, even in this difficult economic climate.”
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are made on the advice of the Prime Minister after examination of applications by an Advisory Committee composed of leading individuals from industry, commerce and government. The awards are conferred annually by the reigning British monarch Elizabeth II on her majesty’s birthday on 21st April.
