TG Eakin celebrates their first Queen’s Award

For the first time TG Eakin Limited has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category.

We are extremely proud to have gained the most prestigious award for business success and will hold this award for the next 5 years.

The Queen’s Awards were inaugurated in 1966 and have since been honouring the highest achieving UK companies. TG Eakin Limited is one of only three companies in Northern Ireland to have been awarded this distinction in 2010.

Jeremy Eakin, Managing Director, commented on the latest achievement for the company. “We are delighted to received the Queen’s Award for International Trade – it is a great tribute to our company and the dedication of our work force and confirms our continuing success despite a challenging economic environment. Our turnover increased by over 30% last year and we anticipate further growth of 15% in the coming year. We are also planning the construction of a factory extension which will double the size of our premises, securing the future of more than 50 jobs and creating further employment.”

Later this summer, a presentation will be made to the company by the Queen’s representative, the Lord Lieutenant of the county.
