Focus SB achieves King’s Award for Enterprise

10th May 2023

(UK) – [d]arc award winner Focus SB has been honoured with the first ever King’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade.

One of 148 organisations across the UK to be recognised with the King’s Award for Enterprise, Focus SB has been honoured for its excellence in international trade.

Gary Stevens, Managing Director, said: “Winning the King’s Award for Enterprise is not only an endorsement of the hard work that we have done in building our export market, but it is also one of the highest accolades that a business can achieve.

“To provide some perspective, only two companies from East Sussex were awarded the Queen’s Award title in 2022, and only one of those was for International Trade. I’m thrilled that this year sees us flying the flag for East Sussex. For an SME like Focus SB, this award could potentially help to support our strategy for global reach and accelerate our growth in overseas markets.”

The King’s Awards for Enterprise was previously known as The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, and the new name reflects King Charles III’s desire to continue the legacy of Queen Elizabeth II’s by recognising outstanding UK businesses. The awards programme, now in its 57th year, is the most prestigious business award in the country, with successful businesses able to use the King’s Award emblem for the next five years.
