MVG (Microwave Vision Group) are pleased to announce that their innovation partnership with Hallmarq has helped Hallmarq to secure a double award win at the UK’s prestigious Queen’s Awards, something which is almost unheard of.
The Queen’s Award for Innovation was awarded to Hallmarq for their EQ2 standing equine MRI (sMRI) scanner. The more recent modular transportable version has been developed in association with MVG who, as part of their long-term innovation relationship with Hallmarq have provided shielded enclosures for over 6 years.
Talking about their contribution to this successful Queen’s Award, John Noonan from MVG said, “This award is an example of how a collaborative customer supplier partnership can unveil innovations which have given benefits to both companies as well as the wider industry. We couldn’t do it without our highly experienced technical team here at MVG who make our ideas on paper a reality. Our shielding design team has over 27 years’ experience in the industry and are experts in product innovation.”
The Queen’s Awards are the highest accolade that can be bestowed on a UK company and are awarded for outstanding achievement by UK businesses every year on Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday. Jos Belgrave from Hallmarq added, “Winning these awards is the culmination of many years of hard work by all past and current employees, and of course could not have been achieved without our customers, suppliers, and everyone else who we have worked with over the past 15 years. Our longstanding relationship with MVG has been a key part of our success.”
