Diamond Dispersions wins Queen’s Award for Enterprise
Ink specialist Diamond Dispersions has officially celebrated its recent Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade win after receiving the Grant of Appointment from Royal representative David Moody the Lord Lieutenant of South Yorkshire.
Over 70 people including Lord Mayor of Sheffield Cllr John Campbell, Master Cutler Neil MacDonald, Leigh Bramhall, Sheffield City Council’s Cabinet Member for Business Skills and Nick Scheinkönig, Diamond Dispersions’ original chemist who devised the majority of the firm’s dispersions, attended the special award ceremony at Diamond Dispersions’ factory in Darnall, Sheffield, UK.
“This is the proudest day in Diamond’s history – this is a massive achievement for us,” comments director Peter Callahan. “We already export 85% of our products but this will undoubtedly help us to maximise business opportunities in the Far East and India where manufacturers view the Queen’s Award for Enterprise as the gold standard.”
Diamond Dispersions employees Mansour Abubaker and Frank Arthur accepted the commemorative rose bowl and scroll on behalf of the company from the Lord Lieutenant who then presented each member of the team with their own personalised memento of the occasion.
“From small beginnings to becoming a worldwide exporter, Diamond Dispersions has done an incredible job,” says David Moody. “I would like to congratulate and wish the company the very best of luck flying the British flag under the Queen’s Award for Enterprise banner.”
