D3O, the Brighton smart materials specialist, has received its Queen’s Award for Enterprise for international trade.

Stuart Sawyer, D3O’s CEO, was presented with the award by the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex in a special ceremony attended by customers, staff and civic dignatories from Brighton and Hove.

D3O was named as a winner of a Queen’s Award for Enterprise as a result of six years of a strong performance in international trade, after demonstrating significant growth in export sales: with 88% of sales being exported in 2013. The result of the unprecedented growth was strong export sales which grew 35% in 2013 and is set to double through 2014-15.



Commenting on attending the reception, CEO Stuart Sawyer said:

“D3O was a small company of 15 people with some great ideas when I took over as CEO in 2010. It has been a great journey and I am proud to see the company grow from its small roots in Hove to a team of 60 in our Portslade offices and trading in 40 countries around the world. I am pleased for everyone in the company to be acknowledged for our work and significant export growth. Our international strategy is starting to take hold with good effect, with over 40% of sales now being generated from North America.”

“We remain committed to expanding both our technology and our global footprint for our patented, innovative, protective solutions. This is a particularly interesting period for us, as we prepare our next stage of growth.”
