Our team at Partech has officially received it’s Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade. We were the only Cornish company to receive the award this year and will hold the honour for five years.

Our joint managing director, Angus Fosten, said: “We are really pleased to have officially received the award. It was a great day for the whole team and recognises the hard work they put in to making us a successful, global company. “Our export business is growing rapidly, especially in China, and this award will further strengthen our reputation for providing the best products and excellent customer service. “I’d like to thank the Lord Lieutenant and his team for taking the time to visit us.”
The Lord Lieutenant was joined by the High Sheriff of Cornwall, John Willis, Cornwall Council Chair, Hilary Frank, Sally-Anne Saunders, Cornwall Councillor for Bugle and James Staughton, St Austell Brewery CEO. The Lord Lieutenant, Colonel Bolitho, said: “It was a pleasure to present the Queen’s Awards to the Partech team on behalf of Her Majesty. It is always pleasing to see a Cornish company making a difference on a global scale and leading the way in engineering and technology. “I look forward to following the company’s journey and growing its international trade.”
We were also invited to a special event at Buckingham Palace where Angus Fosten and our sales manager, David Wilson, had the chance to meet HRH The Prince of Wales. Angus added: “It was great to see Buckingham Palace, as well as chat to Prince Charles and showcase the excellent work that is going on in St Austell.
