Melba Swintex has been presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2019.
The Bury-based plastic blow moulder specialises in the production of traffic management products. The company has developed such products as the first two-piece traffic cone and a one-piece, two-metre pedestrian barrier.
Eighty percent of the current range is manufactured from recycled materials and the entire product range is 100% recyclable.
Melba Swintex initially started distributing products across Western Europe, but has since expanded to where it now delivers products in more than 50 countries, including Iceland and Australia. The company reports exports have doubled in the past four years.
Since being established in 1965, more than 7,000 companies have received the Queen’s Award. The accolade celebrates innovation in business through pioneering products or services.
