Durston Winner of Queens award for International Trade

Durston Rolling Mills are proud to announce that they have won the
Queens award for International Trade. The Queens Award is the highest
official UK award for British businesses. To win the Queens Award a
company must show that it has achieved substantial growth in overseas
earnings and in commercial success. A company must show that it has
had continuous achievement in International Trade over six years.

The Queen’s Awards are announced on 21 April every year to coincide
with HM The Queen’s birthday. HM The Queen makes the awards on the
advice of the Prime Minister, who is assisted by an advisory
committee that includes representatives of government, industry and
commerce, and the trade unions.

Directors Matthew & Sara Durston will be invited to meet the Queen
and possibly other members of the royal family to a reception at
Buckingham Palace later this year.

Durston Rolling Mills would like to thank all their customers around
the world for contributing to our success because without you, we of
course would not have been able to achieve this.
