Queen’s Award one of HiB’s ‘greatest achievements’ says Chairman

There is no doubt that 2020 has proved a pivotal year in HiB’s history. Not only has the company adapted to continue trading through the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, it has also celebrated its 30 year anniversary and won perhaps one of the country’s most prestigious business accolades – The Queen’s Award for Enterprise, which Chairman Warren Ginsberg has said is one of HiB’s ‘greatest achievements’.

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation recognises the successes of businesses across the UK who have made significant advancements in their industry. Reserved for a select number of companies each year, the award is bestowed for 5 years and places HiB among the top businesses for innovation.

To mark the occasion, staff joined Managing Director Robert Ginsberg at HiB’s Inspire House Distribution Centre to raise the Queen’s Award for Enterprise flag, which now proudly flies at the entrance to the site.

Talking about the award, Warren said: “Over the past 30 years HiB has had a number of memorable moments, from moving to larger sites and building the team to winning industry awards and marking company anniversaries, but perhaps the one the company feels most proud of is the Queen’s Award for Enterprise. This award recognises our continued efforts to develop innovative new products for the bathroom industry and places us among other top brands who are leaders in their field.

“It is a great achievement and is a fitting testament to the hard work and creativity of everyone who has contributed to our success over the past 30 years. It has also been wonderful to receive so many messages of congratulations from partners, suppliers and retailers across the industry who we have worked with for many years.

“To see the flag flying at Inspire House is a brilliant sight and a great reminder of our company vision – to be a leader of innovative solutions which make a substantial difference to the lives of our people, partners and the world we live in. Receiving this fantastic award has strengthened our determination to continue our work to develop new and exciting products for our customers to enjoy for years to come.”
