Enterprising Geosense wins Queen’s Award for International Trade

Geosense Ltd, which specialises in supplying instruments for geotechnical and structural monitoring, has been honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category.

Based near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, Geosense has truly global reach across a range of industry sectors.

Employing 50 people, Geosense began trading in 1992, supplying geotechnical instruments for monitoring the safety and performance of some of the world largest construction projects.

The range and scale of infrastructure developments boasting Geosense’s input is eye-catching. From the Paris Metro to the world’s largest copper mines, Geosense sensors have been deployed as part of some of the most complex monitoring schemes on the planet.

Working in a broad range of sectors including Metros, Dams, Mining, Rail, Deep Foundations & critical infrastructure, Geosense sensors have been sold to more than 75 countries worldwide and are internationally recognised for both their quality and innovation.

Growing internationally over the past few years, key growth markets include Chile, Spain, USA, Germany and Brazil. 

Overseas sales grew by 59 per cent across the three-year period reviewed by the Queen’s Awards Office – during which time the proportion of total sales secured overseas increased from 46 per cent to a high of 60 per cent. Geosense demonstrated significant commercial success across all areas and wins the Queen’s Award for International Trade for ‘Outstanding Short-Term Growth in overseas sales over the last three years,’ the Queen’s Awards roll of honour states.

The company is one of 226 organisations nationally to be recognised with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise – accolades that span international trade success, outstanding innovation and sustainable development.

Geosense Managing Director Tim Clegg was understandably thrilled by an honour that reflects immense credit on the entire workforce as well as the ethos of the business and its enduring commitment to delivering quality products and service.

He said: “We are honoured to have received this award, particularly in the year the Queen celebrates her Platinum Jubilee. It is a fantastic way to recognise our success in overseas markets and a tribute to our dedicated team and network of overseas partners.” 

Geosense’s purpose-designed manufacturing facility is based in Rougham,  just outside Bury St Edmunds. It designs, manufactures and calibrates all products from the purpose-built 1,100m2 facility.

As a dynamic and fast-growing company, Geosense has seen multiple years of double-digit growth. This has facilitated large-scale investment which has led to increased manufacturing capability via the addition of in-house CNC machining, micro welding and automation to an already impressive range of processes. 

Recently, Geosense has introduced the new IPI-X – an automated inclinometer and extensometer which represents a new standard in embankment monitoring worldwide. The IPI-X allows for two key measurements within a single borehole, providing even more value for the customer. 

Alongside the Queens Award for Enterprise, Geosense is also ISO 9001:2015 accredited and a member of Made in Britain.
