Queens Award for Enterprise – Export 2012


SMD was been honoured with a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category for its growing presence and success in global markets.

Andrew Hodgson, Chief Executive of SMD, said: “The Queen’s Award is fantastic recognition of SMD’s increasing presence in global markets. Our vehicles have been deployed in some of the world’s most extreme subsea locations, supporting operations across a range of industries including the emerging marine renewables and nuclear decommissioning sectors.”

He added: “Our innovative approach, which was honoured by the Queen’s Awards in 2011, has enabled SMD to become a world-leader and further expand our operations. The last 12 months have been particularly exciting as we’ve dramatically increased the size of our facilities in North East England, which has enabled workforce expansion and the range of products and services we can offer to UK and international customers.”
