Tratos celebrated its receipt of a Queen’s Award this month when the company invited friends, colleagues and special guests to join its senior team at its state-of-the-art factory in Knowsley, Merseyside.
The advanced technology cable company won one of the most coveted of all business awards, a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation for its new high-performance cable sheathing compound, Tratos JBA®.
Liverpool’s Lord Lieutenant joined MPs, the Mayor of Knowsley and other dignitaries to tour the factory, meet key employees and, after a presentation from the world-wide cable innovator, be seated for lunch next to Tratos’ world-class Faraday Cage*.
The Tratos factory closed for the day for the celebration which gave guests the chance to find out more about the level of innovation at the heart of the business.
The specialist sheathing that won the award for Tratos is tough enough to shrug off the most corrosive elements and protect cable function in the harshest of environments.
Tratos CEO and Chair Dr Maurizio Bragagni was a guest at Buckingham Palace earlier this year to meet other Queen’s Award for Enterprise winners at an event to celebrate some of the best and most forward-thinking businesses in Britain. Dr Bragagni met HRH Prince Charles and spoke with fellow recipients of the country’s most prestigious award for business.
Tratos has worked hard to create a culture of innovation and has a reputation as the go-to company for developing solutions where none currently exist.
Dr Maurizio Bragagni said: “We were confident of the quality of our Tratos JBA® innovation and the advances it brings, but we were absolutely thrilled to learn it had been recognised with a Queen’s Award. Now we want to showcase Tratos innovation at our own celebration of the award.”
Tratos continues to develop new products and systems to advance its customers’ ambitions for improved performance, added benefits and reliable, consistent and safe operations.
