For the fourth time, Brompton Bicycle has picked up a Queen’s award for Enterprise, this time for International Trade.

The award has been made in recognition of Brompton bicycle’s rise in exported sales over the last five years, with 75% of production exported annually. Since 2010 the company has grown to sell in 43 export markets, including in South America, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

In the last three years Brompton has also rolled out eight branded Brompton Junction stores in London, Amsterdam, Milan, Bangkok, Beijing, Shanghai, Kobe and Hamburg. More locations have been lined up for the coming year, the brand said.

“We are working non-stop, obsessed about our bike, our staff and our customers; trying to keep ahead of the competition," said Brompton Bicycle CEO Will Butler-Adams OBE. "Recognition from the Queen is a tremendous privilege and allows everyone involved in Brompton Bicycle to take a moment to reflect on our achievements and be proud of our progress so far. The Queens Award is held in high regard across the world and further strengthens our reputation in the forty-four countries to which we export”.

Previously Brompton received The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in both Innovation and International Trade in 2010 and originally The Queen’s Award for Export Achievement in 1995.

Brompton boss Will Butler-Adams gave BikeBiz an in-depth interview earlier this year.
