The Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire has presented a Yate company with their second Queen's Award for Enterprise.

Precision Dippings Manufacturing develop Bloccs' and manufacture waterproof cast and dressing protectors. This allows people with a cast or dressing that needs to be kept dry to swim, bathe and shower normally.

The business won the award for international trade, with products being sold in the USA, Australia and New Zealand as well as being available on prescription in the UK.

Edward Gillespie OBE toured the family-run company's factory in Stover Trading Estate before making the presentation on behalf of the Queen.

He said: "You’re winning these awards because you’re obviously excellent at what you do.

“I’m delighted to congratulate each and every one of you.”

The Lord Lieutenant and his deputy Major John Eyre stayed for a celebratory buffet lunch, during which a specially-made Queen’s Award cake was cut and served.

“We still can’t quite believe we’ve won two of these awards in such a short time,” said Director Kate Richards.

“Sales have dramatically increased over the last three years and we’re really pleased with the feedback we’re getting on a daily basis from customers and medical professionals. It makes a lot of hard work feel very worthwhile.”

The company also won a Queen's Award for Innovation in 2016.
