ETI wins fourth Queen’s Award

UK: Worthing-based Electronic Temperature Instruments has received a Queen’s Award for Innovation for its SuperFast Thermapen digital thermometer.

Electronic Temperature Instruments was amongst the 230 businesses from across the UK recognised for their achievements, yesterday, in honour of the Queen’s 92nd birthday.

Now in its 52nd year, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise is the most prestigious business award in the UK, with winners recognised as being among the best in the country and able to use the esteemed Queen’s Awards emblem for the next five years.

The SuperFast Thermapen is said to be a favourite amongst professional cooks due to its easy-to-read display and fast delivery of accurate temperature reading in just three seconds.

This is the fourth Queen’s Award that the company has won since 2012. The company has previously been honoured with a Queens Award for International Trade in 2012, 2014 and most recently in 2017.

Congratulating the winners, business secretary Greg Clark said: “The UK has some of the most entrepreneurial and innovative minds in the world delivering jobs, growth and greater choice for consumers and I am proud to see a wealth of these businesses being recognised today.”

Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd has been trading since 1983 and is a UK leader in the manufacture and design of electronic thermometers and temperature probes.
