Metrasens was proud to receive a visit from His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester who presented CEO Dr Simon Goodyear with The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of Innovation.
Accompanied by The Lord-Lieutenant of Worcestershire Lt. Col. Patrick Holcroft, His Royal Highness toured Metrasens’ production facility and met employees who explained the activities of the Company in three of its markets: Counter-terror, MRI Patient Safety, and Mental Health Facility Security.
The visit culminated in The Duke presenting The Queen’s Award for Enterprise, Innovation, on behalf of H.M. The Queen. The UK’s most prestigious business award was presented to Metrasens for its ground-breaking work in providing advanced screening capabilities, not available through conventional detection technologies. This is the second consecutive year Metrasens has received The Queen’s Award. In 2017, the company was recognised in the category of International Trade.
After receiving the Award, Dr. Simon Goodyear, Metrasens CEO and co-founder, addressed the invited guests, recalling the founders’ focus on using innovation to build a strong intellectual property foundation for the Company, with the aim of making the world a safer place.
He went on to praise the Metrasens team, “Continually looking for new ways in which we can deploy our core technology, to help our customers solve real and previously intractable safety and security problems, in over 40 countries and growing! This honour is testament to the dedication of everyone in the Company. I thank you all for this, you should be very proud today.”
