29 Apr TWO MORE Queen’s Awards for Niftylift
Two MORE Queen’s Awards for Niftylift
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise – Innovation and The Queen’s Award for Enterprise – International Trade are two of the UK’s highest accolades for business success and have been awarded to Niftylift for the second time! Niftylift in New Zealand is delighted to announce the success of our parent company and to have been named as a winner of both categories is truly humbling and very exciting for all involved.
In 2013 Niftylift was also honoured to receive two Queen’s awards, so this is not the first time that Niftylift has enjoyed success. This new announcement makes Niftylift the first company ever to win two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise twice!
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise – Innovation awarded to Niftylift
Showing clear commercial success through innovative products Niftylift has received this award for the design, development and manufacture of our HeightRider 28 Hybrid work platform HR28 4×4.
In 2015 the HR28 was launched as the World’s tallest electric work platform. Combining state-of-the-art technology and market-leading performance this machine also leads with innovative safety features and an environmentally conscious power plant.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise – International Trade awarded to Niftylift
Recognising companies that have demonstrated consistent growth in overseas sales over a six-year period, Niftylift has received this award in recognition of our outstanding achievement in export sales growth, with an average increase over that period of 132%.
