News | May 21, 2024 | By:

Concrete Canvas (CC) has been honored with the 2024 King’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, marking a significant achievement in its global business endeavors. The selection process for these prestigious awards involves deliberations between the palace and the Prime Minister’s Advisory Committee at 10 Downing Street in London, England. This year, 252 distinguished UK organizations have been acknowledged with the second edition of the King’s Awards for Enterprise, established following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022.

The awards aim to commend and foster remarkable accomplishments in various sectors, including innovation, international trade, sustainable development, and promoting opportunity, mainly through social mobility initiatives. Eleven businesses from Wales have been distinguished among the recipients.

CC, previously honored with the Queen’s Award for Innovation in 2014 and Enterprise in International Trade in 2019, continues to impress with its remarkable growth in international trade and export activities. Over 90% of all materials produced at the company headquarters and manufacturing facility in South Wales are exported overseas.

CC products, a testament to its global reach, have made their way to more than 100 countries since inception. This remarkable achievement is made possible by a team of over 60 employees, including 11 overseas staff managing the company’s regional offices in America, UAE, Malaysia, Australia, Hungary, and Italy.

Co-Director William Crawford expressed deep gratitude for the recognition, stating: “Receiving the King’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade is a tremendous honor for us. It underscores the collective effort and dedication of everyone at Concrete Canvas and the invaluable support from our international sales partners worldwide. Their unwavering commitment to our company and products has been instrumental in our success.”

As winners, a CC representative will be invited to a royal reception at Windsor Castle and presented with a Grant of Appointment (an official certificate) and a commemorative crystal trophy. Learn more about Concrete Canvas here.
