“Only 15 of th­ese awards were made in the North West in 2018. In­deed, this is the se­cond time that one of The TALL Group Of Com­pa­nies has won a Queen’s Award.

“It was an hon­our to rep­re­sent Her Majesty The Queen and present The TALL Group Of Com­pa­nies with their award, recog­nis­ing the amount of ef­fort that has been ex­pended by mem­bers of their staff in­ter­na­tion­ally.

“I wish them well in the fu­ture.”

It is through their hard work and ded­i­ca­tion that we can be gath­ered here to­day to re­ceive this pres­ti­gious award.

“I speak on be­half of the TALL Group board and the site di­rec­tors in say­ing that we strongly be­lieve the en­tire TALL team will carry on to even big­ger and bet­ter things – and to go for a third Queen’s Award!”

Coun­cil­lor John Brad­shaw said: “I’m hon­oured to cel­e­brate the TALL Group Of Com­pa­nies’ suc­cess in be­ing awarded the Queen’s Awards For En­ter­prise.

“This award alone is very im­pres­sive but what’s even more ex­tra­or­di­nary is this is the TALL Group Of Com­pa­nies’ se­cond Queen’s Awards re­ceived.

“On be­half of Hal­ton Coun­cil, I want to of­fer our sin­cere con­grat­u­la­tions on re­ceiv­ing the award.

“The cri­te­ria for the In­ter­na­tional Trade Award is very strin­gent and it’s a tes­ta­ment to the hard work to ev­ery­one at the TALL Group Of Com­pa­nies here in Hal­ton and your other two sites.”

Paul Stow­ers, DIT Head UK Re­gions North West said: “I would like to con­grat­u­late the TALL Group Of Com­pa­nies on re­ceiv­ing the Queen’s Awards For In­ter­na­tional Trade.
