It is public acknowledgement of outstanding achievement in areas such as international trade (exporting), innovation (technology) and sustainable development (environment).

The QA emblem is an acknowledged worldwide mark of achievement. Award winners are entitled to display the emblem on their products, packaging, letter-heads and use it in their advertising.

Managing director David Ryan said: “We’re thrilled to have secured the Queen’s Award for our exports record; it’s great recognition for the expertise of our personnel and all their hard work.

“We plan to expand our workforce in Port Talbot so the Award comes at a really opportune time.

“Those same attributes can cement the position of UK companies as leaders in energy innovation worldwide.”
