Dawnus International has been officially presented with a 2014 Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

The Lord Lieutenant of West Glamorgan, Mr D. Byron Lewis, presented Dawnus International Managing Director Andy Peters with a crystal bowl and Grant of Appointment at a ceremony at Dawnus’ head office in Swansea on Thursday, July 10th.

Dawnus received the Award for International Trade in recognition of our success in delivering major civil engineering schemes in Africa since 2010. Our international turnover increased from £14.2m in 2010 to £86.3m in 2012, and since beginning work in Africa we have provided employment and training opportunities to over 1,500 local people.

The awards are made annually by HM The Queen, and are only given for the highest levels of excellence demonstrated in each category.

Andy also attended a special reception at Buckingham Palace on Monday, July 14th, along with Construction Manager Jim Cranfield, who has been a key member of our expatriate team in Sierra Leone since work began there in 2010.
