“I am thrilled that two of Cumbria’s outstanding companies, Alertacall Ltd and Chimney Sheep Ltd, have won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation. This is an exceptional achievement and I do congratulate them.

"These awards raise the flag for Cumbrian companies. We have in Cumbria world-class companies who deserve and would benefit from the recognition that a Queen’s award would bring.

There is evidence from previous winners that the international standing of the award brings tangible benefits to their business.”
