Balance bike specialist Kiddimoto has been summoned to Buckingham Palace to receive the coveted Queen’s Award for International Trade.
Business owner, Simon Booth made the journey to the Palace on July 14th, to attend a meeting with HM The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh to be handed the award by Her Majesty herself.
Booth was handed the award in celebration of the successful growth of the Kiddimoto business, its dedication to design and the work of the Kiddimoto team over the last decade, topics Her Majesty enjoyed discussing with Booth and Kiddimoto export manager, Will Masters.
The firm is the only brand in the South West region to receive the Queen’s Award this year.
“It was such an honour to meet Her Royal Highness and Prince Philip at Buckingham Palace,” said Booth.
“Having spent the last 11 years putting my heart and soul into Kiddimoto, it is great to see our efforts recognised in such a prominent way. Not only has Kiddimoto gone from strength to strength here in the UK, but we are now proud to operate in 30 countries globally, quite an achievement for a small company, relatively new to the export market.
“We are so pleased that the demand for our bikes and accessories is growing at a substantial rate internationally and the Queen’s Award is the icing on the cake for us.”
