Two Knowsley businesses achieve Queen’s Awards 2019

by Laura Johnston

Two Knowsley businesses will be presented with Queen’s Awards.

Roberts Recycling Ltd has been named as a winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade 2019.  This is the highest accolade for exporting success.

The company, based in Huyton, was established in 2012 by three brothers Simon, John and Paul Roberts and exports new and used clothes.  It has been recognised for its growth and excellence in the export of new and used clothes to a number of international destinations. The brothers claim their strategic location in Knowsley has contributed towards their export success.

Independent cable technology company Tratos, based at Knowsley Business Park, has won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

The global company, which manufactures in Britain and Italy and sells to around 52 countries, received the accolade for innovation.  The company has invested heavily in new plant, equipment and test facilities in the UK and is committed to staying innovation-focused. Tratos’ innovation award was for a new cable sheathing compound, Tratos JBA®, that can shrug off the most corrosive elements and protect cable function in the harshest of environments.

This is a fantastic achievement – well done to Roberts Recycling and Tratos UK Ltd.
