It is the fourth Queen’s Award that Nikwax has won. This award is particularly meaningful because we do everything we can to protect our outdoor environment for all to enjoy both now and in the future. The award recognises our hard work, effort and continued commitment towards this. Our previous Queen’s Awards were for International Trade (2004), and Export Achievement (1996 & 1999).
