ABERDEEN engineering and manufacturing business Woollard & Henry has received its second Queen’s Award.

The Dyce-based firm was recognised for outstanding achievement in International Trade, having an increase of overseas sales of 241%.  Export now comprises 72% of total output.

The company, founded in 1873, began as a family business manufacturing dandy rolls for the paper industry; the dandy roll is the mechanism that inserts watermark into paper.

The company moved into employee ownership in 2002 and now supplies 92% of the world’s banknote providers.

As part of its diversification strategy, the company expanded into the manufacture of transfer vessels for moving oil rig personnel to and from ship to rig and also recently entered the glass fibre production market.

The company employs 60 staff across its four sites in Dyce, Manchester, Poland and Germany.

Managing Director, Fred Bowden, managing director, said:  “It’s an immense honour to be awarded our second Queen’s Award.

“This recognises the contribution of every one of our employees in ensuring that Woollard & Henry strives continually to grow and flourish.”
