Orange Music presented with Queen's Award
The future is bright for a music firm which was presented with a prestigious award.
The team at Orange Music, in Ripon Way, Borehamwood, were handed the Queen’s Award for Internatioanl Trade by Vice Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Richard Beazley, on Thursday.
It is the third time in six years that the company, which builds equipment for some of the biggest names in music, has received the prize.
Cliff Cooper, CEO of Orange Music, said: “It was always our dream to receive the Queen’s Award and to have done so for the third time is very special.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff around the world – it is their dedication and enthusiasm that has made this possible”.
Mr Beazley presented the award at the company’s headquarters in Borehamwood, and Mr Cooper added they were all “extremely proud”.
Winners for the award, which aims to recognise outstanding achievement by UK businesses, are selected by the Queen.
The company was founded in 1968, and provided equipment to bands from Fleetwood Mac to Tina Turner.
It now has factories all over the world, but its headquarters remain in Ripon Way, Borehamwood.
