Leading heating solutions manufacturer, Ideal Boilers, has been honoured with two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in recognition of its outstanding achievements in both innovation and international trade.
The prestigious awards celebrate businesses excelling in four areas: innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity.
Designing, developing and manufacturing the majority of its products in the UK, Ideal’s Commercial boilers have become renowned for energy efficiency, reliability and simplicity of use.
Ideal Boilers were first recognised in 2013 when the business won its first Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the innovation category for its Domestic boilers. The past six years have seen a continued commitment to innovation through the evolution of the Ideal Production Process (IPP), which eliminates potential faults during manufacture, minimising disruption for customers caused by boiler breakdowns. The developments in IPP have been incorporating into Commercial boiler manufacturing as well, especially for Evomax, the UK’s best selling Commercial boiler.
Export is a dynamic area of growth for the business, reflected in the presentation of the second Queen’s Award. Other markets where notable successes for Ideal Commercial have been achieved are Ireland, Turkey and Italy.
Shaun Edwards, CEO at Ideal Boilers, commented: “Innovation, quality and value are our founding principles – and these award wins are testament to the way we live and breathe them throughout our business.
“We’ve been providing the best quality boilers to our customers for over 100 years, continually working to meet their ever-evolving heating needs. We’re proud to be leading the industry in setting new standards and challenging technological boundaries, building on our rich heritage as we look to the future.”
The awards will be presented by one of The Queen’s Lord-Lieutenants at a royal reception this summer and will be valid for five years.
