An Oldmeldrum-based business has received a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.

Flowline Specialists was given the accolade in recognition of its outstanding export achievement over the past six years, and it comes as the business prepares to mark its 15th anniversary.

The Aberdeenshire energy industry equipment manufacturer and service provider is one of a handful of Scottish companies to be awarded the accolade in 2016.

A Queen’s Award for Enterprise is the highest official UK business award and is conferred by the monarch on the advice of the prime minister following consultation with an advisory committee composed of business leaders.

CEO Jim Smith said: “I am extremely proud and honoured that Flowline Specialists has secured a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. It acknowledges the hard work, dedication and focus that every employee has shown in helping to drive the business forward.”
