Meech International was presented with its 2012 Queens Award for Enterprise: International Trade by Tim Stevenson OBE, Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire.
“Meech should keep an annual slot in its calendar for a Queens Awards celebration,” said Stevenson in his presentation speech. “Having won an award twice in three years it would be a triumph to win three awards for the county of Oxfordshire.”
“We are delighted to have been presented with our second Queens Award,” said Chris Francis, managing director at Meech. “All successful businesses depend on just a few things: people, creativity and longevity, and Meech has some of the best staff we could wish for. It is down to you that we have accomplished this achievement yet again.”
Meech, which is based in Witney, Oxfordshire, won the award for a second time for its outstanding achievement in export sales, having continued to grow the business as a whole since 2008, with overall growth in overseas sales reported of 63%.
Also in attendance were William Alden, the High Sheriff of Oxfordshire, Derek Cotterill, the chairman of the West Oxfordshire District Council, Ian Hudspeth, the leader of the Oxfordshire Council and Mr Harry Eaglestone, the Mayor of Witney.
