Queens award - highest official award for businesses - presented to SBD Automotive

2 October 2017

SBD Automotive has been formally presented with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise by Her Majesty The Queen’s representative, the Lord Lieutenant of Buckingham, Sir Henry Aubrey Fletcher. Receiving the award on behalf of SBD Automotive were the original founders of the company, David Bell, Gareth Jones, and David McClure.

The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the highest official UK awards for British businesses. Recipients are invited to Buckingham Palace to meet Her Majesty, and may use the Queen’s Award logo for 5 years.

As well as the staff, close friends and family, other distinguished guests included:

  • Mayor and Mayoress of Milton Keynes, David Hopkins and his wife Susan,
  • Deputy Chief Executive of SEMLEP, Hilary Chipping,
  • MP for Milton Keynes South, Iain Stewart,
  • Executive Assistant to the Chairman of Buckinghamshire County Council, Joseph Bradshaw.

David Bell, CEO of SBD Automotive, said “We would like to thank Her Majesty for recognising SBD Automotive with this award. It’s a great achievement which recognises the hard work of all our staff, and we feel proud to receive the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.”
