On Friday, 22nd October, 3P innovation, a Midlands-based engineering and custom automation company was presented with their two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise (2020 and 2021) by Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire, Mr. Tim Cox.
The High Sheriff of Warwickshire – Lady Willoughby De Brooke, The Mayor of Warwick – Councillor Richard Edgington and a few of their customers were in attendance. The event comprised of a tour of 3P’s facilities, live demos of some of their equipment and a networking session right after the awards ceremony and high tea.
The company was awarded with a Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in Innovation in 2020 and a Queen’s Award for International Trade in 2021. Internationally recognised, these are the UK’s most prestigious business awards, which date back to 1966.
High-tech engineering company, 3P innovation, works collaboratively with global pharma and medical device businesses to help develop their new products, devices and production processes. This exporting manufacturer is one of a very limited number of companies globally who can design and manufacture this sophisticated and heavily regulated automation.
Before the pandemic, there was little public interest into the manufacture of asthma inhalers, injection pens, vaccines, PPE or diagnostic tests – this is 3P’s expertise. Having helped develop equipment to make existing cancer treatments, 3P’s engineers are also active in the exciting ‘cell & gene’ sector, which is likely to lead to cures for cancer in the very near future.
These Queen’s Awards build upon last year’s success for 3P: shortly after launching a national visor initiative, which saw the manufacturer donate over 40,000 visors to frontline staff, the company was awarded with a UK Business Hero stamp by the British Chambers of Commerce. The engineering firm ended the year on a high note after announcing their transition to employee ownership. This year 3P has also been awarded with a Princess Royal Training Award 2021 for their Graduate Development Programme (GDP).
Commenting on this success, Dave Seaward, Founder and Engineering Director at 3P said: ‘The future is looking bright at 3P. These awards recognise the hard work of all our employees and the pride we take in developing our people. We were honoured and humbled to be presented with these royal awards. We look forward to continued development of our highly-skilled staff who design and develop market-leading automation for our clients’.
