Company receives accolade for outstanding export performance over the last three years
TITAN Steel Wheels, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of steel wheels for the off-highway and mobile crane industry, have received the royal seal of approval with a Queen’s Award for International Trade for Outstanding Short-Term Growth in overseas sales.
Based in Cookley, near Kidderminster, Titan Steel Wheels have put themselves at the forefront of the global off-highway and mobile crane markets in recent years and have now received one of the UK’s top business honours through an award which marks the Queen’s birthday. The company received the accolade for its outstanding export performance over the last three years.
Chris Akers, managing director, said: ‘Winning the Queen’s Award is a fantastic honour and testament to the entire team, who all work tirelessly to ensure we display the innovation and expertise – supplemented by investment in the latest technology – to keep us at the forefront of our markets. We have made excellent progression as a business and this award reflects that success.
