Second Queen’s Award for C-Kore Systems

C-Kore Systems Limited from Escrick, York have been honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for the second time in 3 years.  Following their award for Innovation in 2019, they have now been recognised for their contribution to International Trade.

Now in its 55th year, the Queen’s Award for Enterprise is the most prestigious business award in the UK recognising outstanding achievement, with Her Majesty The Queen personally approving all winners.  This year C-Kore is one of only 122 companies across the UK who are to receive an award for their contribution to International Trade.

Tim Overfield, Managing Director, commented “Having had a tremendous 2019, winning both the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation and Subsea UK’s Innovation and Technology Award, news spread globally on how our innovative products are changing the industry practice on how subsea testing is conducted.  This resulted in an increase in international trade of over 600%!  With C-Kore’s automated technology it is no longer necessary to use traditional error-prone manual measurement techniques.”

Tim continued “Following on from 2019, the last 12 months has made all businesses look differently at how they work and has brought the C-Kore testing tools to the attention of even more operators.  Whether it’s cost savings, ease of use, or not requiring the use of additional specialised offshore personnel, our tools have become the “go to” testing solution when installing, fault finding and decommissioning oil fields worldwide.”
