Second UK enterprise award for Peli BioThermal team

Temperature controlled packaging specialist Peli BioTherma has won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2018.  
The company is celebrating its second consecutive Queen’s Award win, adding to last year’s award for innovation for its Chronos Advance.  
The new award recognises Peli BioThermal’s export expertise, which has seen overseas sales grow by 122%, over the past three years 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.”
Lyndon Faulkner, chief executive of corporate parent, Pelican Products, 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 recognises Pelican’s steadfast commitment to delivering quality products and services to our customers around the world.”
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the UK’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".
