3 September 2010; Malvern, UK: Sir Michael Brinton, the Lord Lieutenant* of Worcestershire, today formally presented the 2010 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation to materials characterization company Malvern Instruments in a ceremony held at its UK headquarters and attended by employees from all parts of the organisation. This is Malvern’s fifth Queen’s Award and this year recognises the company’s continuous development of its market-leading Zetasizer Nano particle characterization systems.
Sir Michael made the presentation following a tour of Malvern’s facility during which he talked with people across the company, from manufacturing on the shop floor right through to the boardroom.
Accepting the 2010 Queen’s Award, Malvern’s Managing Director Paul Walker told the audience how proud he is of the achievements of the whole company. “Malvern Instruments was established some forty years ago to commercialise a technological innovation, and while we have come a long way since then in building a global and more diversified business, we have certainly not forgotten our roots,” he said. “I believe that winning this award, specifically for innovation, pays great tribute to the vision, knowledge, expertise and sheer hard work of individuals and teams within our company. However, it’s not only a tribute to those with the technology know-how, but also to everyone in the wider organisation whose individual contribution is vital to Malvern’s success.”
