UK based jet tender specialist, Williams Performance Tenders, has won The Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2010 in the International Trade category. This is the first time the company has received the prestigious award, which honours outstanding UK companies. Accomplishments considered by the judging panel when bestowing this accolade on Williams include growing its export sales over the last three years, and increased overseas distribution.

Award-winning Williams Performance Tenders is owned by local brothers, Mathew and John Hornsby and Roy Parker and has experienced astounding success. The entrepreneurs founded the company in 2004 and today Williams is recognised as the world’s leading jet tender specialist, with its high-quality performance tenders being demanded by discerning boat owners throughout the world.

Joint-Managing Director, Mathew Hornsby, commented: “To win this universally recognised award is testament to our entire team and we are absolutely delighted that their continued hard work has been recognised. This is a huge milestone for us and we are very proud to have been awarded this accolade.

“We have been delighted with the continued growth and success we’ve seen over the past three years. To sustain the company’s growth and attain an increased brand presence, we have expanded beyond Europe and are always looking at emerging markets and key export areas, including Brazil, Asia and Mexico.”

John and Mathew will attend a celebratory reception for winners at Buckingham Palace later this year when they will meet with Her Majesty the Queen. The award will also be formally conferred on the company at its premises in Oxfordshire, UK.

The company continues to invest in new products and its latest model is the 505D Turbojet yacht tender, which made its debut at the Southampton Boat Show in September 2009.

The winning of The Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2010 comes as the company celebrates its 6th year in business and confirms is position as the world’s leading jet tender specialist – and a proud British company.
