This year, 252 businesses representing every part of the United Kingdom and a diverse range of sectors have been recognised by His Majesty The King as among the best in the country.  161 businesses were recognised in the International Trade category, 59 for Innovation, 29 for Sustainable Development and 8 for Promoting Opportunity through social mobility.

Minister for Enterprise, Kevin Hollinrake 

"This is a huge honour and achievement for us - not only the highest official award for UK businesses but, and especially, in the category of sustainability - a topic central to our business goals.

"Green mobility solutions are an emblem of society’s drive towards greater sustainability. Our vision at HORIBA MIRA to pursue this goal has been met with historic levels of investment, realising globally unique capabilities and services. Applying our 80 years of automotive know-how we’re optimising not only how net-zero vehicles perform, but decarbonising how they are designed.

Declan Allen, managing director.



The King’s Awards for Enterprise were previously known as The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise and were renamed last year to reflect His Majesty The King’s desire to continue the legacy of HM Queen Elizabeth II by recognising outstanding UK businesses. The Award programme, now in its 58th year, has awarded over 7,000 companies since its inception in 1965. MIRA Technology Park previously won the International Trade award in 2018.
