AN Oldham company is celebrating a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
Innovative Technology, which has been manufacturing equipment for the international gaming, vending and retail industries for 20 years, joins an elite group of companies recognised by the award, which celebrates excellence.
Innovative Technology, based in Derker Street, has demonstrated achievement and substantial growth in overseas earnings and commercial success with offices worldwide and trading partners in more than 20 countries.
Managing director Aidan Towey said: “The Queen’s Award is one of the most prestigious business accolades in the UK and is only given to companies demonstrating the highest level of excellence.
“We are honoured to receive the award for International Trade. This is actually the third Queens Award in the company’s history having previously won in 1997 and 1999.”
As a Queen’s Award winner, Innovative Technology can expect an invitation to attend a reception at Buckingham Palace with the Queen later this year.
Mr Towey added: “This is a very exciting time for Innovative Technology. As a company we are going from strength to strength.”
