Metryx Receives Queen’s Award for Enterprise

BRISTOL, UK | Posted on May 23rd, 2007

"As a company, we have experienced tremendous growth over the past six years due to the acceptance of our unique mass metrology technology," stated Dr. Adrian Kiermasz, CEO of Metryx. "Being recognized with the Queen's Award is a great honor for our company and confirms the progress we have made as a supplier to the to the global semiconductor manufacturing industry."

The company started trading in 2000 and was selected for this Award for the first time based on its record of increasing its export sales by over 1,000 percent in three years. The company accomplished this by targeting leading-edge semiconductor manufacturers directly and through an international network of sales agents, as well as participating in trade shows and international conferences in its main markets in Asia, the USA and Europe.

Three separate ceremonies will be conducted to present the award. Representatives from Metryx received the first recognition in the presence of His Royal Highness, The Duke of York, at One Whitehall Place.
