Company recognised for contribution to international trade, with overseas sales growing by 146%

Emissions control specialist Eminox has won a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

The award, in the International Trade category, recognises Eminox’s increasing export success, which has seen overseas sales grow by 146% over the three-year application period. Exported sales have risen to 67% of the company’s total sales during the same time frame. This is the first year Eminox has entered the award competition, which reinforces the scale of its accomplishment.

Established in 1978, Eminox designs and manufactures sustainable systems to reduce exhaust pollutant emissions from buses, trucks, rail, marine vehicles and non-road mobile machines. Due to growing international emissions requirements the company expects further future export growth from Europe and other regions, particularly Asia.

“The Queen’s Award recognises the hard work, drive and determination of the entire Eminox team over the past three years,” said Mark Runciman, Managing Director, Eminox. “Although we are in the middle of unprecedented times, the same team that achieved this success will get us through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. We look forward to celebrating this success together at an appropriate time.”

The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the UK. First established in 1965, they celebrate the success of exciting and innovative businesses that are leading the way with pioneering products or services, delivering impressive social mobility programmes, or showing their commitment to excellent sustainable development practices. This year 128 UK businesses have been recognised for excellence in the international trade category.

The award will be presented to the company later in the year and representatives will attend a Royal reception.
