        • Totalpost celebrates Queens Award

          This month saw the official presentation of Totalpost's Queens Award for Enterprise in International Trade


          Totalpost, a mailroom equipment and supplies specialist, has been granted The Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade, in recognition of its impressive growth in manufacturing and exporting over the last three years. Since receiving the award Totalpost has experienced a 20 per cent upsurge in business. Additionally it has increased staff numbers by 25 per cent.
          The company was presented with the Queens Award for Enterprise at its head office in Alston, where Lord Lieutenant for Cumbria, Claire Hensman, officially presented the award in front of 30 or so staff, press and stakeholders.

          The company, which has offices across the UK, in Europe, South Africa and the USA, was selected because of its accelerated growth within the franking machine ink cartridge production industry. It is now one of the leading manufacturers of compatible and remanufactured ink cartridges in the world.

          This prestigious event was the culmination of activity which included an official reception at Buckingham Palace, an exhibition at the BIS offices in central Sheffield and a videoed interview with the Queen's Award office to help them with promotion of the awards.

          Speaking at the event Claire Hensman said: "You've all done an amazing job and this doesn't happen over night. For Alston and Cumbria this is extremely good news, it's lovely that we have some manufacturing here. You're creating new jobs, you're training the next generation, and it's all very exciting so please keep it up."

          In a passionate speech David Hymers, Managing Director at Totalpost, recognised the hard work and commitment of his staff saying: "You are a brilliant, brilliant team and I am so proud of you all. It's been a rollercoaster since the award was announced in April in which we've opened offices in France and South Africa amongst others. Thanks to you all for keeping up with the pace and working so hard, it's been phenomenal."
