A Market Weighton business has been given the royal thumbs up after scooping a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

SG Technical Systems, a supplier of high quality doors, access ramps and other mechanical, electrical and pneumatic systems, has won the award for innovation.

The Queens Award for Enterprise is the UK’s highest accolade for business success.

Based on Becklands Park Industrial Estate, SG Technical Systems has received the award in recognition of its dedication to innovation across its full range of products but particularly for the SG EasyLoad wheelchair/stretcher ramps used in ambulances across the UK.

Simon Chacksfield, Managing Director, said: “It is a huge honour for SG to receive the Queens Award for Enterprise. This award recognises our continual pursuit of innovation and quality and the hugely positive benefits for our customers.”

The company was set up in 2010 with a vision to create innovative, high quality products backed by a reputation for the highest standards of reliability. Mr Chacksfield added: “We have stayed true to our vision and the business has grown substantially year on year. 2016 is set to be our most successful year with orders from UK, France, Germany, Hong Kong and South Korea amongst others.”
SG Technical Systems currently has a workforce of eight, expected to increase during 2016, and works closely with a number of key suppliers in the region.
