Oliver Wight is delighted to share that their client Eminox, has been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise. Based in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, Eminox is an emissions control specialist who has been working with Oliver Wight EAME for a year and a half.
The award, in the International Trade category, recognises Eminox’s increasing export success, which has seen overseas sales grow by 146% over the three-year application period. Exported sales have risen to 67% of the company’s total sales during the same time frame. This is the first year Eminox has entered the award competition, which reinforces the scale of its accomplishment.
Established in 1978, Eminox designs and manufactures sustainable systems to reduce exhaust pollutant emissions from buses, trucks, rail, marine vehicles and non-road mobile machines. Due to growing international emissions requirements the company expects further future export growth from Europe and other regions, particularly Asia.
“The Queen’s Award recognises the hard work, drive and determination of the entire Eminox team over the past three years, Although we are in the middle of unprecedented times, the same team that achieved this success will get us through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. We look forward to celebrating this success together at an appropriate time.” Mark Runciman, Managing Director, Eminox
