Ellis & Co client, Cokebusters, achieves prestigious accolade

This month we are celebrating one of our long-standing clients, Cokebusters, who have achieved the remarkable accolade of winning not one but two King’s Awards for Enterprise for International Trade and Innovation.

Based in North Wales, Cokebusters is an industry leader in the field of mechanical cleaning and piping inspection. Since the business was established in 2005, it has deservedly seen exponential growth, expanding internationally in 2012 by opening its Americas Operations Centre in Texas.

What are the King’s Awards for Enterprise?

The Awards, established in 1965 under HRH Queen Elizabeth II, celebrate outstanding achievements by UK businesses across a number of categories, specifically for those leading the way in their products or service offering, alongside a commitment to their business’ sustainable development.

To be honoured with an award that highlights the integrity and dedication of a business to not only its clients but the wider economy, is truly remarkable, and this is not the first time that Cokebusters has won, having been the recipient of the International Trade award at the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in 2018.

Speaking of the award, Managing Director at Cokebusters, James Phipps, has said:

“This is a very exciting time for Cokebusters. We have been progressively refocussing for increased international growth and technology delivery. This double King’s Award is a huge indicator that we’re on the right path! 

We are very fortunate to have so many skilled and dedicated individuals in our team, both in the UK, the US and within our partner businesses, without whom none of this could have been achieved.  I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of them for their continued efforts and commitment.”

Director here at Ellis & Co, John Farrell has said:

“Having been Cokebusters’ chosen chartered accountancy firm for over 10 years, it has been a privilege to watch the business go from strength to strength, year in, year out, and we are very proud of the part that the Ellis & Co team have played in supporting this business to achieve its goals.”

To celebrate, a presentation ceremony will take place at Cokebusters’ Technology Centre by the Lord-Lieutenant followed by a reception at Windsor Castle in July.

On behalf of the entire Ellis & Co team, we would like to offer Cokebusters huge congratulations for this outstanding achievement.
