International trade award for ETI
Electronic Temperature Instruments (ETI), one of the UK's leading suppliers of electronic thermometers and temperature probes, has won a Queen's Award for Enterprise for international trade.
The award recognises outstanding achievement by UK companies and is selected by the Prime Minister alongside an advisory committee that includes representatives of government and industry experts for international trade.
ETI will receive the award at a ceremony that will take place at the firm's Worthing headquarters during the summer. Peter Webb, managing director of ETI said that receiving the award was a great honour and a significant achievement for ETI, which recognised the hard work and dedication undertaken by its team. He said: "We make many fantastic products in this country a fact often overlooked. By keeping our manufacturing and research and development in the UK, we have been able to support our local economy while successfully growing the business."
Despite the recent economic downturn, over the past five years ETI's worldwide export sales have increased by over 90%, with main export markets in the US, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. The firm now sells over a million thermometers every year, making it the UK's largest digital thermometer manufacturer and exporter. In 2011, it made an annual turnover of more than £7m.
