Deck machinery company ACE Winches has been awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.

This is the second win in that category for the Aberdeenshire-based manufacturer, which first received the award in 2010.

ACE Winches, founded by CEO Alfie Cheyne in 1992, operates on a global basis with 75 per cent of its profits generated from international exports. Staff numbers have increased from 200 in 2011 to over 300 today as the company has expanded to meet growing demand for its range of products and services.

ACE Winches has recently invested over £30 million in expanding its production and winch hire facilities at its Towie Barclay Works base in rural Aberdeenshire. The company also has a Norwegian division, ACE Winches Norge AS, based at Dusavik, near Stavanger.

Commenting on the award, Alfie Cheyne said, “We are so proud to have been recognised for the continuing success of ACE Winches, for the hard work and dedication of our people in delivering that success and meeting the challenges of a truly international business. We are deeply honoured that we should have been selected to take our place amongst the very best in British Industry in recognition of outstanding achievements in overseas markets.”

The Award ceremony will be held at Buckingham Palace at Her Majesty The Queen’s Reception on 23 July 2013.
