We are delighted to announce that FCL have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Export 2012.

This is incredible, fantastic achievement. Since the company started in 1987 we now export to 52 countries representing well over 25% of turnover. Our foam air filters are used by bus and train operators worldwide and PIPERCROSS high performance air filters are sold also globally.

There was an announcement made in the London Gazette and Financial Times on 21st April 2012 and another announcement will be made on the day of the Queen’s Birthday.

There was also a small article in the local paper, Northampton Chronicle and Echo.

Wayne Stevens prepared the application with help from Matt Golby, and our Managing Director, Deryck Norville, and the rest of the organisation would like to thank them for their brilliant work. There were over 10,000 applications with less than 100 companies being successful.

The award is being presented to the company by the Lord Lieutenant of Northampton in May, and Deryck and his wife will get to meet the Queen!
