Our apologies if you couldn't get hold of us on Friday, but we closed early for a party to celebrate winning the Queen's Award for Enterprise.
The award was presented to our Chief Executive Tim Turnbull by John Barber, DL. He was representing Her Majesty The Queen, who personally signs the awards.
As in previous years we have had the award encapsulated in plastic - and framed with two Aquaclips.
This is in fact the third time we have been honoured with a Queen's Award.
It's pretty amazing when you think that we were one of only 18 companies in London to get the award this year out of a starting list of 1,000.
After the presentation we had a little party for some of our long-standing suppliers and distributors.
A delicious cake had been baked, designed to look like the new 098 iPhone case...
...which was simply too much for Alfie, the office Mini Schnauzer.
We at Aquapac are all chuffed to bits about this fantastic award. We're very grateful to everyone who contributed to make it happen. Most of all the customers who bought our cases. God Save You All!
London, July 2012.
