The creator of the Trunki brand, Rob Law, has collected an MBE for his 'Services to Business'.
Law's design studio Magmatic started trading in 2006 and, five years later, the company now employs 19 staff and saw an increase in annual turnover of 85 per cent from the previous year in 2010.
Trunki products are now distributed in 60 countries worldwide, with the line ranging from the Travel ToyBox through to the BoostApak.
"Magmatic is still such a young company, in fact we'll be celebrating our fifth birthday this coming May," Law said. "I'm immensely proud of all we've achieved, especially in such a short space of time - from the 60 plus countries we now trade with around the world, to seeing our one millionth case roll off the production lines this summer.
"I was overwhelmed to receive an MBE and, while the corgi Tunki was not with me when I met the Queen, I'm sure she would have approved of its superior pedigree.
"Britain's design and business pedigree is already world class, so to be among those recognised at such a prominent level is truly an honour."
