While supply chain issues and the end of lockdown saw a dialling down in revenues by 2.5 per cent compared with the first half of last year for High Wycombe-based audio products company Focusrite, the global music and audio products company supplying hardware and software to musicians and the entertainment industry revealed that its subsidiary, Focusrite Audio Engineering ("FAEL"), has again been recognised for its excellence winning the prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise for International trade, announced in Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee year.

Now in its 56th year, the Queen's Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the country with winning businesses able to use the esteemed Queen's Awards Emblem for the next five years.

This is the fifth Queen's Award to be received by the company and the third time acknowledging the outstanding and sustained growth of their international sales. FAEL has previously won the Queen's Award for Innovation (2008, 2018) and the Queen's Award for Enterprise for International Trade (2012, 2016).  Another Focusrite subsidiary, Martin Audio Ltd, previously won the Queen's Award for Innovation (2021) for its Wavefront Precision optimised line arrays. 

Founder and Non-Executive Chairman of the Focusrite Group, Phil Dudderidge said: "Since 1989, Focusrite has been a notable brand in the world of music recording and it has become pre-eminent in the development of computer-based recording, the standard approach these days. Thanks go to our amazing team in the UK and overseas for developing and selling the world's leading audio Interface brand, Focusrite, and sister brand Novation."

CEO of the Focusrite Group, Tim Carroll added: "All of us at the Focusrite are extremely proud to be the recipients of another Queen's Award. Each one we have won is near and dear to our hearts as they are the culmination of much hard work and a great team effort. As we continue to grow our global footprint as a proud British brand, being recognized again for the Queen's Award for Enterprise for International Trade is such an honour."
