The Queen’s Awards are the most prestigious business awards in the United Kingdom that celebrate

field. This prestigious award for International Trade is in recognition of Airline Component Services
(ACS) outstanding continuous growth in overseas sales over the last six years, which has seen a rise
of over 600%.

Graham Higgins, Technical Director of Airline Component Services (ACS) commented:

“Our business is extremely proud and honoured to have received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
It is fantastic to have all the hard work, talent and technical experience of the entire team
recognised at such a high level. Quite simply this significant growth over the past six years would not
have been possible without their endeavours.

The award is also a testament to our company’s focus on providing specialised technical expertise on
aircraft structural components and flying controls. Our commitment to providing and delivering
these difficult to source components to our customers has been the foundation of this growth.

This award comes at an exciting time in the success story of our company as we are preparing to
move into our new facility at Braintree. This will enable us to double our capacity for component
repair as well as improving our response and delivery times.

I would also like to extend a personal thank you to all our customers and suppliers, without whom
this achievement would not have been possible. We look forward to working together to achieve
further success to enable us to continue this fantastic growth.”
