We are now the proud owners of a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade, and we have the photographs to prove it!

Following the announcement of this prestigious accolade earlier this year and official presentation by Her Majesty the Queen on 14 July 2016, the Quanta team decided to celebrate our success internally with a presentation ceremony and luncheon on Friday 7 October. The event coincided with the unveiling of our new branding and office makeover, with guests given the opportunity to participate in an office tour to observe how the business operates on a daily basis.

The entire Quanta team came together for the special day and were joined by dignitaries including the Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, the Countess of Verulam, Deputy Lord Lieutenant Robert Voss CBE, The Worshipful the Mayor and Madam Mayoress of the borough of Dacorum, Cllr Robert McClean and Mrs Wendy McClean and Deputy Madam Mayor of Berkhamsted, Cllr Mrs Carol Green.

We were also joined by some of our industry peers and partners and representatives from the three charities we support (the Pepper Foundation, Thomley and The Silver Line) for the formal presentation of our award, which included a crystal bowl and scroll.

Our CEO Stephen Trigg gladly accepted the offerings from the Countess of Verulam and spoke of his pride at how far Quanta has come and how pleased he is to have seen such an investment in the company from the Quanta team. We have a diverse staff of committed, talented individuals and we are proud to share this success across the whole organisation. In line with this, Stephen presented each and every Quanta team member with a personalised commemorative gift to celebrate the award and their achievements.
Following the formal part of this event, guests and staff members dined out on a hog roast and celebratory drinks as they mingled and chatted amongst themselves and the guests . After the guests departed, the Quanta team kicked on into the evening to celebrate our journey thus far and are looking ahead to the future.
