Focusrite wins third Queen's Award for Entreprise!
The new Focusrite Red 4Pre audio interface and the Novation Launchpad Pro, those are the big wins in the music industry at the moment. To prove it: Focusrite Audio Engineering Limited has been awarded with the 2016 Queen's Award for Entreprise for International Trade. Which isn't the first time, as this is the third time that Focusrite has been honoured with a Queen's Award for Entreprise. Previously, they've also collected prizes for Innovation in 2008 and International Trade in 2012.
A word from Phil Dudderidge, Founder and Executive Chairman:
"This is a great recognition of the outstanding growth of our business over the past seven years, during which period group revenue has increased fivefold, with over 80% of our business now coming from international trade. I would like to acknowledge not only the supreme efforts of our staff in the UK and abroad but also our distribution and retail partners, and not least our hundreds of thousands of customers around the world who depend on Focusrite and Novation products in their music making."
Damian Hawley, Global Marketing and Sales Director, added:
"To receive this award for the second time in four years for our outstanding International Trade results is a real testament to the quality of our products and we are honoured to be recognised once again. We would like to thank our teams in the UK, Germany and the USA together with our Territory Managers for EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), Asia-Pacific and Latin America. We would also like to acknowledge the exemplary work done by our global distribution partners, as well as all of our retail partners around the world for the significant level of support that they have shown the Focusrite, RedNet and Novation brands over the last few years."
