Peli BioThermal has announced it has won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2018.

The company is celebrating its second consecutive Queen’s Award win, adding the accolade to last year’s award for innovation for its Chronos Advance.

The distinguished honour was awarded for Peli BioThermal’s export expertise; providing the global life sciences industry with thermal protection packaging solutions for the safe transportation of pharmaceuticals. Overseas sales have grown significantly, by 122%, over the past three years and 61% of sales is exported for the company based in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire.

Peli BioThermal President David Williams said: “We are proud to receive this auspicious award again, this time for International Trade. It is an absolute honour to receive Royal recognition for our outstanding performance exporting our pioneering products worldwide.”

CEO of corporate parent, Pelican Products, Lyndon Faulkner, added: “I am thrilled that Pelican is receiving the Queen’s Award for a second year in a row. It is an extraordinary accomplishment and recognizes Pelican’s steadfast commitment to delivering quality products and services to our customers around the world.”

“The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the United Kingdom’s most accomplished business awards, which recognise and celebrate enterprise excellence.

“The judging panel highlighted how the company’s “introduction of a reusable and rental product range, offers significant customer return on investment and the ability to obtain and use products at short notice, but without investing large sums of money upfront.

“Major markets include Benelux, Central America and the Far East. Overseas sales have grown by 122% over the last three years and 61% of sales is exported. The company wins the Queen’s Award for International Trade for Outstanding Short Term Growth in overseas sales over the last three years.”
