Our second visit to Buckingham Palace

Two members of our Precision Dippings Manufacturing (PDM) team, attended a reception at Buckingham Palace last week having won a second Queen’s Award for Enterprise – this time for International Trade.

After first winning  in the Innovation category in 2016 for  the research, development and launch of  our ground-breaking  Bloccs’ waterproof cast and dressing protectors, we received royal recognition once again with  our global sales that span countries including the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, the Netherlands, France and Sweden.

PDM Director Kate Richards and Business Development Consultant Hannah Prickett attended the event on behalf of the company.  

“To visit Buckingham Palace for a second time was absolutely amazing,” said  PDM Director Kate Richards. “We’re thrilled to have won another Queen’s Award for Enterprise and can’t thank our team enough for all their hard work and enthusiasm – this really is a testament to  them. We had a fantastic time at the reception in the company of many other inspiring businesses and were even lucky enough to meet Princess Beatrice during our time there.”

Bloccs  re-usable  covers,  available in adult and children’s sizes,  allow users with a cast or dressing that needs to be kept dry to swim, bathe and shower normally  – making them a  big hit  with families going on holiday. The medical profession has also been impressed with  Bloccs  and  the protectors  are now available on prescription  in the UK.
