A DROITWICH-based furniture manufacturer has been honoured for its rapid growth into the international market with a coveted Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
Staff from control room furniture manufacturer Winsted Europe and Middle East were presented with the prestigious honour at a ceremony attended by Lady Brinton, wife of the late Lord Lieutenant of Worcestershire.
The company was rewarded for overseas sales which have increased an impressive 82 per cent over the past three years.
Winstead makes items such as console systems, monitor walls, workstations and multimedia desks from their base on the
Hampton Lovett Industrial Estate.
General manager Terry Shough, said: “Despite the tough current economic times, we are extremely proud to have successfully entered and grown new markets.
“This achievement reflects the hard work put in by the whole Winsted team over a long period, as well as our range of innovative, high quality products.”
