Delight as Protolabs wins Queen’s Award

Digital manufacturer Protolabs has won a Queen’s Award for International Trade – the third time the company has been honoured by Her Majesty.

Protolabs was one of just 201 companies across the country to be recognised by the Queen to celebrate her 93rd birthday. As a digital manufacturer, Protolabs uses 3D printing, CNC machining and injection moulding technologies to produce custom-designed parts and prototypes in a matter of days.
Bjoern Klaas, vice president and managing director of Protolabs Europe, says the award is a huge honour for the company, which has its European head office in Telford, and has seen overseas sales grow from £13m in 2015 to £27.7m in 2017. “It is a great privilege for us to be recognised by Her Majesty for our excellence in international trade and a real testament to the magnificent work of every one of our team at Protolabs.”
