Welsh Queen’s Award winners announcedThree companies in the Newport and Gwent area have received a 2017 Queen’s Award. Newport-based SPTS Technologies Group won in the international trade category; its products are used to process wafers for the manufacture of semiconductor and micro-electronic devices.

Company president Kevin Crofton said: “This award belongs to the entire organisation — from those involved in the development and manufacture of our industry-leading wafer-processing solutions to those outside the UK who sell and install our products and support our customers.

“Our growth is a testament to the quality and competitiveness of UK-developed technologies and products in global markets.”

The other winners are HWM-Water in Cwmbran and Monmouth-based Siltbuster, both in the innovation category. HWM was recognised for PermaNET+, its water-leak monitoring system for the mobile-phone network; Siltbuster has developed a range of technologies for the rapid treatment of waste water.

Queen’s Award winners are visited by a royal representative and presented with a commemorative trophy. They are also invited to a reception at Buckingham Palace in July, and they can use the Queen’s Award emblem in their marketing and on packaging for the next five years.

Be seen in all the right places!
