Having been formally presented with our Queen’s Award on

visit to the Palace.
On July 14th, Steve Bull (Owner & CEO of Floortex) together with
James Bull (Financial Director) attended Her Majesty The Queen’s
Reception at Buckingham Palace.
The reception was an opportunity for all 2015 award winners to meet and
be formally congratulated by members of the Royal family.

Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and also attended by The Duke of York,
accompanied by Princess Eugenie of York, The Princess Royal, The Duke of
Gloucester, The Duke of Kent, Princess Michael of Kent and Princess
Alexandra, the Hon Lady Ogilvy.
Steve commented "It was a great honour to be a winner of such a
renowned award and to be invited to this prestigious reception. Meeting
the Queen and other members of the royal family was a great end to the
whole awards process and a day we will never forget”.
With 3.2 million companies registered in the UK there were just 141
winners of the award in 2015 with only 20% of those entering being
Steve concludes, "The announcement of our award has resulted in an
amazing response from both customers and distribution partners located
around the world, who have been delighted to hear of the accolade. Key
markets such as the USA, Canada, Australia and Japan have a great
affiliation with the Royal Family and the award is sure to increase our
