The award is for the co-development of the microK recognising both the innovation and commercial success of this world beating Thermometry Bridge.
John Tavener, Isotech founder and President, says, “We are delighted that Her Majesty the Queen has approved the Prime Minister’s recommendation that Isotech should receive a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category this year… I recognised that the existing instruments used old technology and relied on obsolete components; cooperating with Metrosol Ltd we developed this new device, with better performance and lower cost than the older designs. Winning a Queen’s Award for Enterprise; the highest honour that can be bestowed on a UK company is a real cause for celebration for everyone at Isotech“
We certainly are all celebrating; the award looks not just at innovation and commercial success but also at the company and its role within the local community, environmental impact and the quality of its relationships with suppliers, partners, employees and customers.
