We've just won the Queen's Award for Enterprise: International Trade!
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious awards for UK businesses, recognising and celebrating business excellence across the UK and are personally approved by Her Majesty The Queen. CPL (UK) Limited has been recognised for its excellence in International Trade, where its year on year growth has hugely exceeded expectation over the last three years.
CPL is a marketplace specialist in fragrance and beauty. It distributes its products around the world and now has a presence in 52 countries and territories.
CEO Dan Callaghan, who hails from Altrincham reacted:
"I am delighted that CPL has won a Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade. We set up the business to help pay my tuition fees at University, with no real idea about what we were likely to achieve just a few years later. I have to thank our team of staff who have helped the company win this award - many of them have been with CPL from the start and have made this journey with us."
Director, Steve Callaghan added:
"This is an award which we know has international recognition and we are proud to win it. CPL has an ambitious growth strategy and hope to on-board new countries and territories in 2021. We will also be developing links with new suppliers to expand our extensive current product range and looking for new partnerships to help drive the business forward. It will be an honour to fly the Queen's Award flag."
Now in its 55th year, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise celebrate the success of exciting and innovative businesses which are leading the way with pioneering products or services, delivering impressive social mobility programmes or showing their commitment to excellent sustainable development practices.
CPL hope to celebrate the award later in the year at Buckingham Palace.
