HM The Queen honours Ancon with third Award

30 Apr 2018

Structural steel fixings manufacturer, Ancon, has won a 2018 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category. This is the third time that Ancon has been honoured in this prestigious award scheme that rewards outstanding achievements by UK businesses; it follows Queen’s Awards for International Trade in 2015 and Innovation in 2012.


Commenting on their latest triumph in the Queen’s Award programme, Ancon’s Managing Director, Stuart Maxwell, says


“Winning three Queen’s Awards is an extraordinary achievement and reflects the level of professionalism with which Ancon employees go about their daily business in all areas of our organisation. Our focus on quality and innovation, combined with a single-minded determination to excel in everything we do, not only underpins our brand reputation in the UK but its growing significance worldwide. It is another very proud day for everyone connected with Ancon and I thank our employees, our customers and our suppliers for their continued support.”


Later this year the Lord Lieutenant of South Yorkshire will visit Ancon’s head office and main manufacturing site in Sheffield and officially present the 2018 award on behalf of HM The Queen. Ancon representatives will also attend a royal reception at Buckingham Palace this summer, hosted by HRH the Prince of Wales and other senior members of the Royal household.
