We are delighted to share some news with you today – Digital Yacht have been awarded a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise. The award is for international trade where we have shown significant growth over the past 3 years with exports to over 100 countries. Exports now represent more than 75% of our revenues.
These awards are the most prestigious for UK businesses. The Queen makes them annually on recommendation from the Prime Minister and this year’s announcement (21st April 2022) coincides with her 96th Birthday.
“This award is an amazing team achievement that celebrates everything we do from product development, local manufacturing, international marketing, logistics and our corporate social responsibilities” commented Nicolas Guerin who heads up business development. He joined Digital Yacht 7 years ago as a business graduate and has seen the business grow with the opening of a new European office in Rouen last year. The company also has a Boston based office for the US & Canadian market.
Founder and CEO, Nick Heyes added “Digital Yacht started back in 2011 with just a handful of products. Since then, we’ve organically developed innovative products and solutions spending 15% of revenues on R&D. We think about the global market place right from the outset. To earn this Queen’s Award for Enterprise is a huge accomplishment for the business and the whole crew.”
We are keeping up a busy schedule of international events – this week we’re at Salon Multicoque in France and next week you can find us at the Palma Boat Show presenting a new range of boat monitoring and internet access products. There is a document outlining the start up of the business, click here to read it.
