Calibre recognised for export achievement22 October 2012
Image processor manufacturer Calibre UK has been presented with a chalice and certificate by HRH The Duke of Kent at an official awards ceremony at the company’s offices celebrating its achievement in winning the Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2012 in the international trade category.
Thevent was attended by local council and dignitaries as well as several international clients representing Calibre UK in China, Europe, China, North America and Japan.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade was in recognition of Calibre’s sustained export growth and international success between 2008 and 2011.
Calibre UK will attend another event later in the year which will see Tim Brooksbank and Pauline Brooksbank of Calibre UK meet with HM The Queen and other Queen’s Award winners to receive formal recognition.
Over the past three years, Calibre UK has introduced five new image processing product lines comprising nearly 30 individual models designed to address the increasing display needs of video professionals. The company has simultaneously established a strong distribution partnership with many companies throughout the world, with particular focus in Germany, Europe including Eastern Europe, USA, Australia, South East Asia, Hong Kong, China, and the Middle East.
“As a British company based in Bradford, Yorkshire, it’s great to be recognised by such a well respected institution,” said Tim Brooksbank, Calibre UK chairman. “Having our partners and customers present at today’s ceremony made the recognition very special. It firmly establishes us as one of the world’s leading suppliers providing world-class innovation and growth and is something everyone at Calibre has helped to achieve. I am particularly proud of our development of a strong international distributor and OEM partnerships which includes a number of world-class highly respected brands as well as more specialist niche market distributors.”
