Milmega Ltd, a Teseq company and a leading designer and manufacturer of high power microwave and RF amplifiers, has been presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation for developing amplifiers based on a novel design methodology, using gallium nitride-based transistor technology, which has brought the Company significant, global, commercial success.

Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant Major General Martin White CB CBE JP presented the Award to the Company on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen at a ceremony that was attended by the Company’s staff and partners as well as local suppliers together with dignitaries from the Isle of Wight, UK.

The prestigious Queen’s Award for Innovation is awarded to businesses in the UK to recognise outstanding innovative achievements relative to their operational size. To win the Award, Milmega was required to demonstrate continuous innovation and development over a period of five years resulting in substantial improvement in the performance of the Company. In addition the Award is only made to organisations that can demonstrate a high level of corporate responsibility.

Graeme Goodall, Milmega’s Financial Director received a crystal bowl engraved with the Queens Award emblem on behalf of the Company’s staff together with a ceremonial Grant of Appointment and thanked both those who work at Milmega and with the Company for their contributions to this achievement.

Goodall said, “The Award says a lot about the skills and abilities of those who work at and with Milmega in achieving sustained global success in the design and manufacture of highly innovative, market leading, amplifier products. I am also pleased that this Award recognises and promotes not only our innovative designs but also the values of quality and customer service that are important to us as a Company.”
