Presentation of Queen’s Awards

Maj Gen Martin White presents the award to RFEL MD Alex Kuhrt.

BUSINESS TWO leading Island companies have been presented with their Queen’s Awards, which were announced earlier this year.

RFEL was presented with its second Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation by the Isle of Wight’s Lord Lieutenant, Maj Gen Martin White, at the Royal Yacht Squadron, Cowes.

The Newport-based company started in 2000 and now employs more than 20 highly qualified engineers.

It has just moved into 4,000sq ft of first-floor office accommodation at The Apex, St Cross Business Park.

The award was for its range of digital signal processing technologies.

MILMEGA Ltd was presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation for developing amplifiers, which has brought the company global success.

Established in 1987, it employs 31 design, manufacturing and support staff at its factory in Ryde.

Maj Gen White presented the award at a ceremony at the Priory Bay Hotel, Seaview.

Philip, you can't expect too much, especially as all 3 businesses actually seem to produce something which creates jobs.
The CP will be far too busy covering 10 pages of the Global Summit to bother about businesses which actually DO something.
Besides, do you not think that "awards" are so commonplace nowadays as to be almost meaningless?
You KNOW Marine Data is good for business, so do your clients! Enough said!
