St Neots-based Kinesis is celebrating after being named a winner of the UK’s highest accolade for business success - The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.

kinesisThe awards are made annually by HM The Queen, and this year coincide with Her Majesty’s 90th birthday on April 21st. Kinesis are one of the select businesses recognised as winners of the 2016 Queen’s Award, which the company has received due to their outstanding success in International Trade.

The award was made in recognition of achieving continuous growth in export sales over the last six years of the business, which is one of the leading suppliers and servicers of chromatography, liquid handling, sample storage and medicinal chemistry consumables and equipment. Overseas sales have grown by over 200% in the last six years with the percentage of sales exported growing from 19% to 56% over the same period. The same period has also seen a great investment in people and technology which has gone to make Kinesis a renowned global brand.

Commenting on the award, Jamie Gallifant, Group Managing Director said: 

“We are delighted and honoured to have won this prestigious award, this success is directly attributable to the efforts of all within the Kinesis Group. We’d particularly like to recognise the long term support of our customers and supply partners. This is an important stage in our company development and we will strive to continue to offer unrivalled service and support to our global customer base”

Kinesis was established in 1997 and is now based in St Neots, Cambridgeshire.  After forging more than 90 premier distribution partnerships across the world, Kinesis opted to have a direct presence in the global marketplace. Using a targeted entrepreneurial approach they founded a US office in 2006 and an Australian office two years later. After this success they went on to acquire a German company in 2008 and have recently taken part ownership of an Italian company.

Along with their distribution expertise, Kinesis also provide breakdown and maintenance servicing on chromatography systems and pipettes. This has allowed Kinesis to offer an increased portfolio of services, further strengthening their customer offering to their clients, who now see Kinesis as the global business which they have become.

The success of Kinesis in recent years has proved to be a benefit to the local community. Currently employing 44 members of staff in the UK and 90 globally, this figure is up from 35 employees just two years ago. The business is also keen to play its part supporting local groups including the nearby Sue Ryder home at Moggerhanger and local youth football team Eynesbury Rovers while also supporting national charities such as Macmillan, Sport Relief and the Make a Wish Foundation.

Commenting on the award, Group Commercial and Marketing Director Roy Testa said:

“It is very satisfying to receive the Queens Award for Export in recognition of all the hard work and changes that we have implemented in our business over the last 3-4 years. We have been busy adding to our staffing levels, improving the export knowledge, launching a new and truly global e-commerce website, introducing new systems and software, which have all helped us to achieve our aim of delivering a more efficient service for our customers. We are all very proud of Kinesis for receiving this award and will ensure that we do not stop with our continued efforts to grow our business and deliver a first class service for our suppliers and customers.“
