Valve engineering specialist Severn Glocon Group received special recognition for manufacturing excellence at the 2014 Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 awards ceremony.
The annual International Track 200 lists the UK’s private companies with the fastest growing overseas sales. This year, special awards were presented to four of the 200 organisations. Categories included manufacturing excellence, transformational growth, emerging international brand and fastest-growing company
Severn Glocon Group was singled out for the manufacturing excellence category following exceptional export growth which has seen international sales double in two years. The Sunday Times’ deputy business editor Simon Duke presented the award.
Maurice Critchley, CEO of Gloucestershire-based Severn Glocon Group, says: “Export activity now represents the majority of our turnover, thanks to strategic foundations laid over the past 15 years. Our combination of British engineering expertise and progressive technologies coupled with a robust international footprint sets us apart on the global stage. It’s an honour to be singled out from the International Track 200 for the manufacturing excellence award. And it is testament to the dedicated skills and expertise of all our staff in the UK and overseas.”

Earlier this year, the Group won its second Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. It has also reached the final round of judging for The Manufacturer Awards, in the export category.
