Cambridge sensors company, Zettlex, is celebrating a second Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
The award for international trade recognises Zettlex’s strong export growth, with exports to 50 countries accounting for nearly 90% of the company’s sales.
Zettlex is the world’s leading provider of position and speed sensors for harsh environments. The sensors are used in control systems by equipment manufacturers in the industrial, medical, defence and aerospace sectors.
Mark Howard, Managing Director at Zettlex said: “We’re delighted to win the prestigious Queen’s Award for a second time. Our technology is increasingly used as a critical component in some amazing machines such as surgical robots, submarines, satellite communications and space rockets. We’ve grown 60% over the last year and continue to see strong demand from all sectors and territories – notably North America and the Far East. I must say a big thank you to all our staff who have worked so hard for this success.”
Heidi Allen, MP for South Cambridgeshire said: “Zettlex continues to power from strength to strength, flying the flag for British innovation, manufacturing and export. I am so proud to represent South Cambridgeshire, a constituency where exemplary high-tech businesses flourish. Congratulations once again to everyone at Zettlex, we take our hats off to you!”
