The “Made in Britain” award recognises companies developing technically excellent, innovative, world-beating products and technologies in the UK, thus enhancing the UK's knowledge base and innovation culture. Previous award winners include Peratech.
In 2013, the “Made in Britain” award was jointly presented to Chase Distillery and OGN Group.
Please nominate new products or technologies; refinements of existing products or technologies introduced to market in the past two years. The nominations need not be mass-market; rather the judges will be looking for evidence of technical excellence; innovation and international potential.

• Evidence of market need; pre-launch research undertaken
• Technical excellence in the product, technology or innovation
• Evidence of innovation
• How development was maximised by use of UK assets, skills, supply chain etc
• Current sales levels; or forecasted sales potential
• Scale of potential market

In 100 words, please summarise how your product, technology or innovation stands out as a uniquely British success story.
You will also be asked, if possible, to supply your three most recent sets of audited accounts, as well as any relevant supporting information (press coverage, marketing materials, customer testimonials etc).
