Samuel Grant Packaging has announced that it has won one of the UK’s most prestigious business awards.
The Northern England packaging specialist has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for its highly innovative pallet wrapping solution, the Samson Nano.
Although the Queen’s Award for Enterprise is an award available to only British businesses, it is globally recognised as a mark of excellence. The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is given to businesses that excel in innovation, sustainable development or international trade, and it is the highest official UK award for British companies. In winning this award, Samuel Grant Packaging joins a very select band of elite UK manufacturers.
To qualify and win, the company had to prove how the packaging industry had been impacted by the Samson Nano, with its in-built reporting software and ‘price per pallet’ costing system. The company also had to show the effect that the machine’s development had had on the local economy, and on the bottom line of the business income.
Andrew Grant, current managing director and great grandson of the founder, Samuel Grant, said: ‘We are honoured to have been recognised for this prestigious award. Innovation is central to our ambition to be the best people in packaging, providing the best packaging experience for customers in the UK. We are hugely excited about this accolade and are grateful to our dedicated staff and loyal customers who have made this award win possible.’
Samuel Grant Packaging has been at the forefront of manufacturing innovation for over 125 years. With three different branches across the North of England, the whole group is extremely excited to receive this prestigious recognition for innovation within the packaging industry.
