Cokebusters receives The Queen’s Award for Enterprise for achievements in International Trade 2018

28 April 2019

With a passion for engineering and a commitment to research and development, Cokebusters has rapidly become a world leader in decoking and inspection operations.  Alongside Cokebusters USA, we provide the highest quality service to oil refineries across the World, with 95% of turnover/sales coming from outside the United Kingdom.

Winning this award for International Trade recognises this achievement, and the ongoing commitment of the business to innovate, develop and continue to grow within a demanding global market.

On making the announcement John Phipps MBE, Chairman of Cokebusters commented:
This award recognises the outstanding performance of Cokebusters in its international dealings; a feat which could not have been achieved without the applied skill, dedication and loyalty of staff members. I thank all of you. We have always strived to run our business with honesty and integrity and we are proud to have this recognised at the highest level.

Established in 1965, The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is the UK’s most prestigious business award.  It was designed to recognise and encourage business achievements across the UK in the fields of Innovation, International Trade and Sustainable Development.

An exacting selection process ensures that the awards are only granted to businesses which maintain the highest standards of propriety.  The Queen’s Awards Office is meticulous in verifying the authenticity and credibility of entrants to the scheme and prospective winners are subject to checks on every aspect of how the business conducts itself from legal breaches and financial probity through to broken delivery promises.

A presentation ceremony will take place at the Cokebusters Technology Centre by the Lord-Lieutenant, followed later in the year by a Royal reception at Buckingham Palace, hosted by Her Majesty The Queen.
