Award-winning Lutterworth business rubs shoulders with royalty

AN AWARD-WINNING Lutterworth business was recently invited to rub shoulders with royalty.

Window and door restrictor specialists from Jackloc attended Buckingham Palace to celebrate winners of the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise 2017.

The reception – hosted by Her Majesty herself and The Duke of Edinburgh – brought together all the winners from the across the country to mark their achievements.

The family business received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation for their universal cable restrictors for windows, designed to reduce the risk of falls.

Grandfather of Jackloc founder Emma Wells invented the lock after seeing his grandson Jack perilously close to a second-storey window.

Emma said: “It’s always an incredible honour to attend Buckingham Palace, especially to celebrate with our fellow winners of the Queen’s Awards 2017.

“The event provided a great networking opportunity with over 170 winning businesses who were all represented. We were able to speak with many of those businesses and establish potential partnerships.”

“We were also able to speak with members of the Royal Family in attendance including Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and the Duke of Kent, which of course was a huge privilege.”

Jackloc were also recipients of the Thomas Telford Award for Innovation and were named Leicestershire Small Business of the Year 2015.
