UK-based cooking appliance manufacturer Glen Dimplex Home Appliances (GDHA) won the Queen's Award for Enterprise 2012 in the International Trade category after overseas sales of its British-made products increased by 880%.

The Queen's Awards for Enterprise is a UK accolade for business performance. They awards are bestowed each year by Her Majesty the Queen, on the recommendation of an advisory committee that includes representatives of government, industry and commerce, and trade unions. The International Trade Award recognizes companies who have delivered an outstanding performance in international trade resulting in substantial growth.

GDHA announced its intention to export its cooking appliance brands - Stoves, Belling, and New World - in 2009. Since then it has delivered record financial performance, growing revenues by a total of 880%. It has expanded rapidly in overseas markets such as Australia, France, Spain, Belgium, Cyprus, and Holland and recently began building relationships with Poland, Germany, and Israel.

GDHA achieved its success by actively marketing and labeling its products as Made in Britain and by building strategic relationships with distributors and agents.

"We are a British manufacturer operating in a challenging marketplace and competing against a number of overseas players, but we firmly believe that Made in Britain is a mark of quality and our overseas customers agree," said Denver Hewlett, Chief Executive of Glen Dimplex Home Appliances.

GDHA employs more than 1,000 people at its manufacturing facility at Prescot, Merseyside.
