1 min read

Gloucester-based dental manufacturer Prima Dental has won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade in recognition of its outstanding growth in overseas sales over the last three years.

This is the second Queen’s Award for Prima Dental, a designer and engineer of precision dental products for healthcare and cosmetic markets, who also won the accolade in 2014.

Since then the company has continued to expand, building a permanent presence in key global markets.

It has also applied its dentistry expertise and invested £1 million in the launch of a new trading division earlier this year called Prima Digital, capitalising on the rapidly-growing digital dentistry segment.

Richard Muller, managing director at the 215-strong Gloucester manufacturer, comments: “We are thrilled and honoured to be recognised with another Queen’s Award for Enterprise. This is an amazing accolade and is testament to our dedicated and skilled team who are all instrumental in our growth and success.

“The Queen’s Award comes at a hugely exciting time for Prima as we are witnessing strong growth in overseas trade for our precision dental instruments, as well as new opportunities opening up in digital dentistry. Applying our precision engineering expertise and knowledge of materials, we have just launched the highest quality tool for the digital market and we believe our digital division will be a huge part of our future business.”
