Leverton Clarke has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2014 from the newly-appointed Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire Nigel Atkinson.

He was accompanied by deputy lieutenant Andrew Kent, who read out a citation, which said the award was for the International Trade category for the company’s impressive growth in overseas sales for its range of Lithium based chemicals, which it exports to 28 countries. Over the past five years, the company has grown sales by an average of 30 per cent each year.

Addressing staff at the award ceremony, Mr Atkinson spoke of the “amazing progress” the company has made since it was formed in 1975. He also added: “I know from my own business experience how difficult it is to get into certain countries, and also to fulfil their logistic requirements and currency issues, so I think what you have achieved is quite superb, and I have absolutely full understanding as to why you’ve won this award.”

Mr David Hicks Chief executive paid tribute and thanked the 18 people employed at Leverton Clarke in Basingstoke and said: “We are a small company, working under the radar most of the time and so to be recognised in this way is fantastic. This will make a real difference to us.”
