Addmaster wins Queen's Award for Enterprise

Addmaster, innovator and supplier of anti bacterial products, has just been awarded the Queen's Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category.

The company, based in Staffordshire, was set up by managing director Paul Morris 11 years ago. Its top selling product, Biomaster Antimicrobial Technology, is exported worldwide for use in plastics, paper, textiles, paints and coatings. Biomaster is a silver based additive which stops the growth of bacteria on the surface it is added into and is used extensively in the medical, healthcare and food hygiene industries in applications such as doctor’s case note holders, nurse’s uniforms, medical equipment, food packaging, food preparation equipment and wall and surface coatings.

"We are very proud to accept the Queens Award for Enterprise in International Trade," said Paul Morris. "It is the culmination of 11 years hard work, and is a real credit to our team. We are particularly well known for our work in developing the Biomaster antimicrobial technology, a system that is safe, durable and effective in all applications against bacteria such as MRSA, E.Coli, & Campylobacter. The award coincides with our export drive and overseas market expansion that has seen the appointment of sales director David Wells as our international business director."

Morris continued: "Our business model has been to use UK manufacturers to produce our unique products developed by our internal research team and then market these to both local and international markets via a network of specialist agents and distributors. By keeping our R&D and manufacturing in the UK we are able to support our local economy and tap into the plentiful resources this country has so we can ensure all our products are produced to the high specification our global customers require."
