Focusrite Audio Engineering Recognised For Its Excellence In International Trade

Focusrite Audio Engineering Ltd is one of over 200 organisations nationally to be recognised with a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for its excellence in international trade.

This is the fifth Queen’s Award to be received by the company and the third time acknowledging the outstanding and sustained growth of their international sales. Focusrite has previously won the Queen’s Award for Innovation (2008, 2018) and the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade (2012, 2016). Martin Audio Ltd, part of the Focusrite Group, won the Queen’s Award for Innovation in 2021 for its Wavefront Precision optimised line arrays.

Focusrite Group Founder and Chairman, Phil Dudderidge said: “Since 1989, Focusrite has been a notable brand in the world of music recording and it has become pre-eminent in the development of computer-based recording, the standard approach these days. Thanks go to our amazing team in the UK and overseas for developing and selling the world’s leading audio Interface brand, Focusrite, and sister brand Novation.”

2022’s Queen’s Award for Enterprise recognises Focusrite for successfully meeting increased order volumes while dealing with disruption to deliveries and for growing their overseas orders by 145% in the six-year period. Their top markets include North America, Germany, Austria, France, Benelux, Australia and South Korea.

CEO of the Focusrite Group, Tim Carroll adds: “All of us at the Focusrite Group are extremely proud to be the recipients of another Queen’s Award. Each one we have won is near and dear to our hearts as they are the culmination of much hard work and a great team effort. As we continue to grow our global footprint as a proud British brand, being recognized again for the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade is such an honour.”

Now in its 56th year, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the country, with winning businesses able to use the esteemed Queen’s Awards Emblem for the next five years.
