ISG wins coveted Queen’s Award for International Trade

International construction services company, ISG has won a coveted Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category in recognition of the company’s sustained success in overseas expansion.

As the UK’s most prestigious business accolades, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise highlight outstanding achievement in the fields of innovation, international trade and sustainable development. ISG successfully demonstrated to the judging panel that its strategic diversification into new growth markets and geographies across the globe deserved recognition at the very highest level.

David Lawther, ISG’s Chief Executive, commented: “I’m delighted to announce ISG’s important achievement in one of the most high-profile and celebrated awards for commercial success. The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade represents an independent validation of our achievements. Overseas, we continue to grow our businesses, working with multinational customers such as Google, RBS, Marks and Spencer, Unilever, Barclays, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany.

“The profile of the UK construction sector has never been higher overseas and received a major boost following the successful staging of the London 2012 Olympic Games, in which ISG played such a key role. We have combined that reputation with organic growth and a series of strategic and successful acquisitions in key markets internationally, while continuing to improve our position in the UK.”

Targeting sustainable growth, ISG has proved highly responsive at aligning its business with geographies and buoyant global sectors that offer the greatest opportunities, such as the office, retail, hospitality and data center markets. A key international highlight is the £250 million of data center projects the company is currently delivering in the Nordic region alone.

David Lawther added: “Our strong profile outside the UK is one of ISG’s key differentiators and winning the award is further proof that our strategy to diversify our business is working.”
