Shelforce presented with crystal and certificate from King Charles

Staff at Shelforce were presented with their King’s Awards for Enterprise crystal and certificate for receiving the prestigious business award.

The Birmingham manufacturer received the King’s Awards for Enterprise in Promoting Opportunity (through social mobility) last year.

The King’s Awards for Enterprise engraved crystal winner trophy was presented by The West Midlands’ Lord Lieutenant, Sir John Crabtree, who gave a short speech of congratulations and met all the team before having a tour of the factory.

The event was also attended by members of Birmingham City Council, including Wayne Davies, Director of Asset Management.

The team were also able to view the official The King’s Awards for Enterprise certificate, which was signed by King Charles and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and recognises ‘the outstanding achievement of Shelforce,’ and will be displayed in the reception at Shelforce’s headquarters.

Howard Trotter, Shelforce’s Business Manager, said: “It was a huge honour to welcome Sir John to the factory and it was brilliant for the team to be presented with the King’s Awards for Enterprise crystal and certificate as our success is all down to them.

“Eleven years ago, the perception was that Shelforce was broken, and we would not survive, so to get to where we have and to receive the highest UK business honour is an unbelievable achievement.”
