Birmingham Post Business Award winner Titan Steel Wheels this week received another award in a visit from His Royal Highness The Duke of Kent.
Worcestershire-based Titan Steel Wheels, which makes wheels for earth-moving machines, industrial material handling machines and mobile cranes, picked up the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation.
It is the second year running that the firm has received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise – last year it won the Queen’s Award for International Trade.
HRH The Duke of Kent met a number of staff at the firm’s Cookley site, including Titan Steel Wheels general manager engineering, Steve Arnold.
Mr Arnold, who has worked at Titan Steel Wheels for 40 years, developed the award winning product known as an IF series three-piece wheel.
Titan Steel Wheels managing director Chris Akers said: “This achievement comes as the result of our renowned technical ability and innovative approach to problem solving.
“It is testimony to the continued efforts of the dedicated, talented and determined workforce at Titan Steel Wheels.”
HRH The Duke of Kent said: “Titan has won three Queen’s Awards – this a tremendous achievement and proves that any company which succeeds in doing this can compete with the best in the world. A particular source of congratulations is winning an award for Innovation.”
