Niftylift Honoured with Prestigious King’s Award

British manufacturer, Niftylift, is being honoured with the prestigious King’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade for 2024. This, the company’s first King’s Award for Enterprise, follows an illustrious history of recognition, including four Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, two in 2013 and two in 2019. Niftylift holds the unique distinction of being the only company ever to receive two Queen’s Awards on two separate occasions, highlighting its ongoing commitment to excellence and innovation.

“We are immensely proud to receive this distinguished award,” said John Keely, Managing Director of Niftylift. “This accolade reflects our hard work and dedication to excellence in the international trade arena. It underscores our commitment to not only advancing our technology but also ensuring that our operations support sustainable practices worldwide.”

The King’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade is awarded to British businesses for their exceptional performance in international expansion and commercial success. Criteria for the award include demonstrating substantial growth in overseas earnings and commercial success through innovative products and services.

Niftylift has significantly expanded its global footprint, demonstrating remarkable export volumes that have increased consistently year on year. The company’s innovative approach to design and manufacturing has enabled it to deliver high-quality, environmentally conscious products that meet rigorous international standards.

Niftylift’s export success also brings dramatic benefits to its local economies. Most notably in the UK, but also in Australia, the United States and Europe, where Niftylift has brought ongoing investment and much-needed job creation. “Our success is not just measured by sales but also by the positive impact we have on communities and the environment,” added Mr. Keely. “We work hard to be successful on the international stage, but we are a family business at heart, and the well-being of our staff, their families and our local communities is what drives us to succeed.”

The official presentation of the King’s Award for Enterprise will take place at a royal reception later this year, attended by members of the Royal Family and other dignitaries.

John King, MD of Niftylift Australia, commented: “This prestigious award is further acknowledgment of the innovative spirit of Nifty. We have a long history of breaking the mold when it comes to manufacturing, and its a testament to the continuing R&D in Milton Keynes that enables us to keep growing in global markets.”

Niftylift continues to strive for excellence and innovation, paving the way for future growth and sustained international success.
