The UK Department of International Trade (DIT) has awarded Markes International (Llantrisant, UK) with a trade accolade in recognition of its success in exporting scientific instrumentation.

The Board of Trade Awards, which are nominated and selected by the DIT, were this year awarded to eight Welsh businesses for showing exceptional innovation, delivering prosperity to their local communities, and championing free trade. In particular, the judging panel were impressed with Markes’s growth in the Chinese market.

This year’s awards were presented by The Rt Hon. Dr Liam Fox MP (Secretary of State for International Trade and President of the Board of Trade) and the Rt Hon. Alun Cairns MP (Secretary of State for Wales) at an event at Swansea University on 15 November.

“We are very proud to have received this award from DIT, and believe it stands as a testament to the many years of effort we have devoted to strengthening the profile of our analytical instrument business overseas,” said Tim Hawkins, Markes International Managing Director.

“It is particularly gratifying that the judging panel have recognized our efforts in Chinese markets, which remain a core focus of our efforts,” said Hawkins.
