The Lord-Lieutenant carries out duties in the County on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen such as the presentation of decorations and the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise.

The visit of the Lord-Lieutenant was on a typically busy day at Bigneat and this enabled him to meet the companies employees who made winning the Queen’s Award possible. He was shown around the offices, the engineering design suite and production area where the manufacture of safety cabinets, hoods and enclosures takes place.

Bigneat equipment is used for protection in laboratories undertaking research, experimentation and measurements in biology, chemistry, drug discovery, education, electronics, food, medical, nanotechnology and includes the Chemcap Clearview range of Chemical Safety Cabinets and Powder Weighing Safety hoods.

During his visit Hollingbery was keen to find out what the award means for the team at Bigneat and he spoke with many of the staff.

Robert Monks, managing director explained that everyone could see that the award is a fantastic achievement and recognises their hard work and creativity. “We are delighted to win this award, it raised our company’s profile and it’s instilled a sense of pride and confidence in our employees.”

Hollingbery commented about his visit, “It was a pleasure to visit Bigneat and tour the premises, meet staff and managers and talk about the economic climate. It's a tremendous accolade the company has received for exporting its products and contributing to the UK economy and I congratulate them.”

“To have such an award-winning company here in Waterlooville is a matter of great pride for me as the local MP and for residents too. Bigneat is just the sort of enterprising and innovative business we must do all we can to nurture and help as we move towards being a major global trading country in the years to come.”

The visit of the Lord-Lieutenant and George Holingbury concludes the visits of dignitaries in what has been an exciting year for Bigneat.
