Specialist manufacturers of microelectronic components for optoelectronic, semiconductor, hybrid and microwave applications, specialising in metallised ceramics and metal components and assemblies
We are delighted to announce that we have won another Queen’s Award for Enterprise – the UK’s highest accolade for business success.
We won our second Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2018 following our award in 2016. Both awards recognise outstanding growth and commercial success in international business.
Our exports have continued to accelerate thanks to strong demand in telecommunications and other major industrial markets. Exports now represent close to 90% of our turnover.
“Since we were honoured in 2016 we have continued to grow significantly, doubling our turnover mainly by increasing our overseas sales, which have risen more than 250%,” said Andrew Walker, Technical Director at LEW Techniques.
The latest period of growth has again seen the company create more jobs, with LEW’s workforce expanding by more than 30% in two years.
