Holroyd Precision receives 2015 Queen’s Award for Enterprise

We are delighted to announce that Holroyd Precision has received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise – the UK’s highest accolade for business success.

Our award is for International Trade. It was given in recognition of our achievements in developing new markets globally and for our considerable investment in creating new machine tool technologies with particular focus on those markets – resulting in year-on-year growth.

Our win is all the more significant as 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the Queen’s Awards.
