The Queens Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the UK. The awards were first established in 1965 and since then 7,114 companies have achieved a Queen's Award. The Awards celebrate the success of exciting and innovative businesses which 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 238 UK businesses have been recognised for their contribution to international trade, innovation, sustainable development and promoting opportunity (through social mobility).
Manvers Engineering Ltd have been successful in the category of Innovation for the uniquely ground breaking product, Plant Nappy.
The Plant Nappy's patented dual-purpose technology provides a cost effective way to control leaks and spills from equipment, protecting the environment and avoiding contaminated waste. Plant Nappy ensures that oils and fuels are captured in the base but allows clean water to escape contaminate free, providing superior unrivalled performance to the construction industry.
The Lord-Lieutenant of the County, Her Majesty The Queen's local representative, will present the Award at Manvers Engineering Ltd head office in Barnsley later this year. The Award is formally conferred by a Grant of Appointment and is symbolised by the presentation of a trophy.
