Pipe manufacturer Naylor Clayware has won a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category for its high-performance products which are used in demanding applications around the world.
Naylor CEO Edward Naylor, who has been running the business since 1993, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to receive this award. We’ve got a fantastic team: from long-servers with decades of experience through to young and enthusiastic apprentices and this really is a wonderful recognition of all their hard work over so many years. We’d also like to thank our international network of agents and distributors who work tirelessly in flying the Naylor flag across the globe.”
Now in its 55th year, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the country, with winning businesses able to use the esteemed Queen’s Awards emblem for the next five years.
A division of the fourth generation family business Naylor Industries plc, Naylor Clayware is based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. The company supplies challenging schemes across the globe, such as where surface activity precludes digging a trench or where process plants emit aggressive chemicals. Its Denlok trenchless pipe has been particularly beneficial internationally in allowing authorities to install or upgrade sewers in fast-growing metropolitan areas where it is impractical to dig up the roads without dramatically disrupting daily life. International sales growth of these high-performance products has led to the company being awarded the Queen’s Award for International Trade; since developing these ranges, the company’s products have been supplied onto every continent and into 65 countries worldwide.
