iCandy wins the Queen's Award For Enterprise in International Trade
26th April 2016
It would seem there is no stopping iCandy at the minute. The luxury pushchair brand has won another accolade and this time it has the royal seal of approval. iCandy has been awarded the prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade.
iCandy has been a powerhouse in the pushchair market in the UK for some time but what impressed the Prime Minister and ultimately the Queen was their trading overseas. iCandy is now a big player in many parts of the world. As a result, a Royal Representative will visit iCandy's World Headquarters in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire and present the team with an engraved crystal bowl in acknowledgement of the brand's achievements.
Furthermore iCandy's two Joint CEO's, brothers Bradley and Warren Appel, will be attending Her Majesty The Queen's reception at Buckingham Palace on Thursday 14th July 2016.
iCandy released a statement following the news of this accolade. CEO Bradley Appel said:
"This is the achievement of our quite extraordinary team at iCandy, both here in the UK and within our iCandy China operation. Since our establishment in London 83 years ago we have employed thousands of staff. Today some of our current iCandy Team have been with us as long as almost 40 years and a few have only started with us just this year. They are all individually the most talented and dedicated team who are all truly industry experts and leaders in their various roles. My brother Warren and I could not be more proud of everything they achieve and know that without them it would not have been possible to achieve over 30 patents worldwide and 8 design registrations to date that truly separate iCandy from the rest of the field. We are immensely proud that iCandy's creation of the world's first single-footprint double pushchair took Britain by storm and that our British design and innovation has been recognised in the 33 countries that iCandy is currently sold – through almost 900 stockists to date. We are confident that the endorsement of the Queen's Award can only assist iCandy's commitment and will give our worldwide customers even more confidence in building long term relationships based on trust and respect."
