Queen's Enterprise Award for Dura Composites

Dura Composites The Lord-lieutenant of Essex Jennifer Tolhurst presented Mr Burns with an official grant of appointment

Dura Composites has been presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

This year Dura Composites is amongst an elite group of 176 recipients of the award.

"Many of our innovations such as our Dura Slab trench covers and Dura Platform GRP station platforms have revolutionised the categories for which they were designed and help to solve the key design challenges facing everyday businesses," explained Dura Composites’ MD Stuart Burns.

The Lord-lieutenant of Essex Jennifer Tolhurst presented Mr Burns with an official grant of appointment signed by Her Majesty the Queen and British Prime Minister Theresa May, followed by a commemorative crystal bowl.

As an award winner, representatives from Dura Composites were invited to attend a reception at Buckingham Palace in July this year. A gala dinner was then held in September, attended by all the 2017 award winners.

More than 85% of this year’s Queen‘s Award winners are small businesses

Mr Burns added: “This award recognises our talented and committed workforce and comes at a really exciting time as we look to the future and the continued growth of our product portfolio."
