Willard Conservation, founding sponsors of the Anna Plowden Trust, have been named the winners of the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise – the UK’s highest accolade for business success.
Joining a select group of businesses, Willards has been commended for achieving outstanding results – most notably by demonstrating five years of growth in International Trade.
Willard's conservation tools and equipment are exported all around the world, with recent commissions from its Chichester-based workshop being shipped to Yale University and the Orientalist Museum in Doha, Qatar. Another commission acknowledged by this accolade, was the largest conservation table we have produced to date (at over 4m x 3m), which was sent to Kronborg Castle – best known as the home of Shakespeare’s Hamlet – in Helsingor, Denmark.
Paul Willard, Managing Director of Willard Conservation Ltd, says of winning the award, “We are delighted to receive this hugely prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise – without doubt, it’s the result of our fantastic team of technicians.” He continues, “We have all worked hard not only to develop an extensive range of products and services, but to secure our reputation for quality and long-lasting craftsmanship and this award comes at a really exciting time for us as we look to what the future might hold for the company.”
Many congratulations to Paul and his team (shown right) on the richly deserved award.
