Nov 09 2010 Read 3167 Times

Halma plc has won the Innovation category at the British Business Awards held recently in Shanghai, China. The Innovation Award recognises organisations that are committed to research and development and introducing innovative and sustainable technology with practical applications. Over 20 of Halma’s subsidiaries, including Hanovia, Ocean Optics, Halma Water management and TL Jones
operate in China and between them have introduced over 130 products into the country since 2006. Organised by the British Chambers of Commerce in China, the Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner, held
on 7th September in Shanghai, was attended by a host of VIPs including His Royal Highness Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, who is a UK Special Representative for International Trade and Investment.

Halma’s Chief Executive Andrew Williams said: "I am pleased that our efforts to build businesses in China which can create tailored solutions for Chinese customers have been recognised in this way. Innovation is one of Halma’s core values and we remain committed to increasing our investment in R&D with China."

Speaking at the awards ceremony, UK Trade & Investment Chief Executive Sir Andrew Cahn said that the awards: “are about recognising the enormous achievements made by companies that are promoting British excellence, innovation, enterprise and endeavour in the business community across China as well as celebrating the success of Chinese companies in the UK. UK-China relations are growing at a rapid pace. Already this year UK exports of goods to China have increased by 45%, while last year more than 74 Chinese companies invested in the UK. It is companies like these, doing business on the ground, which are strengthening our business ties."
