MR Solutions received the accolade for the development and commercial success of its preclinical cryogen-free MRI scanning technology and new multi-modality innovations.
Michael More-Molyneux, Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant presented the award on behalf of The Queen to MR’s chief executive David Taylor last month.
Taylor said: “We are delighted to be presented with the Queen’s Award for Innovation.
“It is an incredibly prestigious award and there was an overwhelming sense of pride at our offices when the Lord Lieutenant presented us with the award.
“Our business is built on innovation; the fact that we are still the only company to have installed a range of cryogen free scanners is testament to that.
“However, it is very satisfying to have our efforts endorsed by an award which is only presented for the highest levels of business excellence.”
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is valid for five years and is one of the most prestigious business awards in the UK.
The awards are presented to a select group of businesses having been recognised for outstanding business achievement.
Now in its 50th year, the awards are made annually by HM The Queen and are only given for the highest levels of business excellence.
