• HK Wentworth Group wins the Queen’s Award

        • AF International’s parent company, HK Wentworth Group, has been named as winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the UK’s highest accolade for business success.

          The company received the Award for Enterprise in International Trade in recognition of its global exporting success. Around 249 Queen’s Awards have been announced this year for outstanding business achievement in the fields of International Trade, Innovation and Sustainable Development. The awards are made annually by HM The Queen, and are only given for the highest levels of excellence demonstrated in each category.

          Ron Jakeman, Managing Director of HK Wentworth said, “it is an absolute honour to be recognised by Her Majesty the Queen for all the hard work and expansion success we have achieved over the past few years. As a UK manufacturer, committed to providing industry around the world with smarter, greener chemical solutions, we pride ourselves on our long-standing heritage and our customer-focused ethos. I would like to take the opportunity on receiving this most prestigious business award, to personally thank all of our dedicated employees for their hard work, enthusiasm and commitment in driving our business forward.”

          The manufacturer of specialist chemicals is continually developing new and environmentally friendly products for customers around the world and its commitment to developing ‘greener’ products means it has also been endorsed by the ISO 14001 standard for its highly efficient Environmental Management System in place and the OHAS 18001 standard.

          HK Wentworth executives are invited to attend a reception at Buckingham palace later in the year. The Grant of Appointment and crystal bowl will be presented by the Lord-Lieutenant of the County, the Queen’s local representative at a special awards ceremony.
