Genuine Solutions has beat off fierce competition to win the prestigious Queens Award for Outstanding Achievement by a UK business.
The accessories distributor was selected as one of the UK's most promising companies in the category of International Trade just six years after it was founded.
Genuine Solutions director Christian McBride said: ‘I am totally overwhelmed by this award. It is an amazing achievement and I thank everyone at the company for their hard work.
‘Six years ago we were operating out of the front room of a house, today we have 4 commercial units, 75 staff and our now going to meet the Queen who has honoured us with an award for enterprise. A very proud moment.’
The company said the award will be a valuable marketing tool in pushing Genuine Solutions forward in the international business arena.
International Sales Director, Gurjit Dhillon, said: ‘It's a fantastic milestone for the company, and demonstrates what can be achieved with focus and strategic planning. Our international sales have grown rapidly through the work we have been doing and it's great to receive an award of this magnitude to recoginse what the team have been doing.’
An official presentation will be made by the Lord Lieutenant in July and the company has also been invited to a reception at Buckingham Palace to take place later this year.
Genuine Solutions has achieved other recognition for its work including the Kingston Business of the Year Award in 2010 and most recently an International Safety Award 2011 from the British Safety Council.
