LPW Technology Ltd, the market leader in the development and supply of the highest quality metal powders and software solutions for the Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry, has been named as one of just ten prestigious Ruban d’Honneur recipients for The Import/Export Award in the 2016/17 European Business Awards, Europe’s largest business competition.
“This is a great accolade for the LPW team,” says Dr Phil Carroll, Founder and CEO of LPW. “We’ve worked hard to establish our reputation for premium quality metal powders and seamless customer service, and this in turn has supported us to develop our dedicated global sales teams, and to establish a committed network of resellers world-wide who share our passion, vision and ambition. This focus resulted in almost 75% of our total sales being exported in 2015, and we’ve created 54 new positions over the last two years, with plans for many more.”
Former Prime Minister of Belgium and current award judge Yves Leterme commented, “The European Business Awards is a very good stimulus for companies to always try to improve their results... it’s a way of rewarding them for their great efforts.”
“It’s an honour to be awarded the Ruban d’Honneur for the Import/Export Award by a panel with such strong business acumen, international trade experience and cross-cultural expertise,” says Dr Carroll.
LPW was selected from among the 33,000 businesses that engaged in the competition by a panel of highly-respected independent judges because it demonstrated core values of innovation, ethics and success. The company will now undergo an in depth face-to-face interview with the panel, and will find out if it is an overall category winner at the Gala Final in May.
LPW is also competing in the public vote to become the UK’s ‘National Public Champion’, a prize decided by the number of public votes it receives. “Every vote counts, so please cast your vote for us at http://bit.ly/2iZbfKD, ensuring that the UK is represented in Europe by a high-tech company in a progressive manufacturing industry,” adds Dr Carroll.
