Lord-Lieutenant Presents The Queen’s Award for Enterprise To Dawsongroup
The Countess Howe, His Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire and the King’s personal representative, visited Dawsongroup in Milton Keynes on Monday 12th December to present the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation.
Dawsongroup is a group of companies specialising in the supply of commercial assets and provides more than 30,000 supply chain links across the UK, Europe, New Zealand and the USA. Its innovative Temp°store design and success in the humanitarian and global development sector provided them with the winning requirements for the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation.
The Countess Howe, His Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, presented the award to Steve Miller, Dawsongroup CEO. Also in attendance were the Mayor of Milton Keynes, Councillor Amanda Marlow, and Lou Marron, the Assistant Clerk to the Buckinghamshire Lieutenancy. Employees from TCS and Tectoniks who had been involved with the design and production of the winning Temp°store were also invited, along with Dawsongroup directors and staff from across the company.
In her role, Lady Howe enjoys supporting the Monarch in celebrating Buckinghamshire, its businesses and charitable organisations, its history and culture, and meeting the people who make this such a special place to live. Some of the many duties she carries out are arranging Royal visits and escorting members of the Royal Family, presenting honours, medals, and awards, and swearing in new magistrates. The best part of her day is getting out and meeting the businesses around the county to present awards such as the Queen’s Award for Enterprise and the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
The presentation began with a demonstration of the Temp°store 10 for the visiting dignitaries, all of whom were very impressed with its range of temperatures and use in humanitarian aid and disaster relief. The guests were then escorted to the Board room, ensuring the Lord-Lieutenant entered last as protocol dictates, and were introduced by Steve to the waiting audience.
Before presenting the unique commemorative crystal trophy and official scroll of the Grant of Appointment, the Countess Howe, His Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, gave a wonderful speech explaining the importance of the Queen’s Award and describing Dawsongroup’s achievement. She said, “It is wonderful to recognise the success of a family run company, Dawsongroup. Tectoniks should be very proud of their achievements and the whole company for its vision and investment in projects for the future.”
The Mayor of Milton Keynes, Councillor Amanda Marlow, said, “This is a fantastic award for Dawsongroup, leading the drive for innovation in Milton Keynes and making sure countries across the world benefit from this adaptive technology.”
Steve Miller said, “I’m immensely proud. We’re honoured to have the Countess Howe, His Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, come here and present the Queen’s Award. It’s a great achievement for the whole team at Tectoniks and a statement of intent for our future.”
