OPRO has been honoured with two Queen’s Awards. We won the first award in 2007 and the second 12 years later in 2019. Both awards were granted in the category of Enterprise: Innovation in recognition of our groundbreaking work in the field of oral protection.
Whilst the Queen’s Award application process may be rigorous, the benefits of winning far outweigh any of the challenges involved. The most positive effect for us has been in international sales. Being able to print the Queen’s Award logo on our packaging or use it on our website and marketing material has given us prestige and set us apart from our competitors.
Winning has been described as the equivalent of being awarded a corporate knighthood and we have certainly felt the effects of that elevation in status in our company.
