Adlington’s successful exports business, Proseal, has won the Queen's Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade. The award was presented by the Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire, Sir David Briggs KBE, and was bestowed in recognition of Proseal's continuous growth over the last six years.
Local MP, David Rutley, joined staff at the company to celebrate this impressive achievement at the recent presentation ceremony. He met with Proseal’s management and staff, to find out how they had achieved this success, and took the opportunity thank them for their strong and active contribution to the local economy. The award is all the more special as it comes in the company's 20th anniversary year.
The company – which manufactures automatic tray sealing machines, conveyor systems, and sealing tools for the food industry and other applications – now employs 300 people in its UK operations, and 400 worldwide. It also now has a presence in every continent except for Antarctica. David was also impressed to learn more from Proseal's Managing Director, Steve Malone, about the company's continuing investment in new tray-sealing research and technology developments, including sealing cardboard.
Speaking after his visit, David said, "I extend my warmest congratulations to all at Proseal on this excellent and well-deserved award. It is clear that staff have made strong and dedicated efforts to expand the business, boosting the local economy and creating many jobs locally. I wish the company every success for the future."
