Focusrite has been awarded the 2012 Queen's Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade.
The award follows three consecutive years of growth in global business and market share, aided by the opening of offices in the US and Germany during this period.
This is the second time Focusrite has been honoured with the award, having previously won the prize in the Innovation category back in 2008.
Founder and executive chairman Phil Dudderidge commented on news of the Award: "This is a great recognition of the outstanding growth of our international business over the past three years, well over 100 per cent. I would like to acknowledge not only the supreme efforts of our staff in the UK and abroad but also our distribution and retail partners and not least our hundreds of thousands of customers around the world who depend on Focusrite and Novation products in their music."
Global sales director Damian Hawley added: "To receive this award for our outstanding international trade results over the last few years is an honour and a real testament to the quality of our products. We would like to give a special mention to our teams worldwide: our offices in the UK, Germany and the USA together with our Territory Managers for EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), Asia-Pacific and Latin America. We would also like to acknowledge the exemplary work done by our global distribution partners in more than 80 countries, as well as all of our retail partners around the world for the massive level of support that they have shown the Focusrite and Novation brands over the last few years."
