“We are delighted to win such a prestigious award which recognises our achievement in core business growth and in recent years gaining a strong position in the space sector, producing significant growth across both UK and international markets,” said Ian Skiggs, Vice President & General Manager of Teledyne Microwave Solutions UK. 

“This growth is expected to continue and support our strategic goal towards a sustainable, highly skilled, regional business enterprise recognised as a technology leader in the space sector and support regional investment and jobs across the Yorkshire region.”

Now in its 53rd year, the Queen’s Award for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the country, with winning businesses able to use the esteemed Queens Award emblem for the next five years.
