Queen’s Award for Third Dimension

Third Dimension, which supplies handheld precision measurement systems, is one of the 2015 winners of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category - the UK’s highest accolade for business success. Representatives of the company will be attending a reception at Buckingham Palace in July to recognise this achievement.

These awards are a result of exponential increases in overseas sales in recent years. In 2012 exports accounted for 64% of total sales, and this has increased to 84% this year; and exports have grown five-fold in the past 6 years.

Third Dimension exports to over 25 countries worldwide with local support provided by its network of distributors. It also works with leading multinational companies such as Airbus, Volkswagen, Lockheed, Mitsubishi and Embraer.

Peter Marchbank, CEO at Third Dimension said: “Exporting is now the lifeblood of our business. In the last five years we have invested heavily in our systems, processes and people to enable our exports to increase substantially. This award is recognition of this, but especially celebrates the hard work of all our staff and international partners.”
