OLPRO wins Queen's Award for Enterprise

British camping equipment expert OLPRO has been named the winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise – International Trade 2021, one of the first UK-based companies to do so since Brexit. 

Despite the challenging circumstances of the last year, OLRPO has been recognised as a retail success story in its segment due to its hugely increased international sales in the last year, which has almost doubled the company’s turnover and also the number of staff it employs. At present, OLPRO enjoys a large chunk of sales in the UK, Germany, France and the USA – the company has used the last 12 months to build its international presence and its website is now available in almost 100 languages. 

Daniel Walton, founder of OLPRO, said: “We're absolutely delighted to be announced as the winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise - International Trade 2021. I think this award recognises the exceptional interest in our brand and innovative products, but it also represents how people across the globe have shown a growing interest in camping and enjoying the great outdoors.

“This year we are celebrating our 10th year in business and I'm so pleased with how we've been able to grow our company significantly during this time. But more importantly, we’re proud to be a business that really gives back to the community and we will continue to use our successes as an opportunity to help and support local communities, charities and CSR initiatives.”

The award win comes off the back of a record-breaking year for OLPRO, which saw the company enjoy a 98 per cent increase in orders and a 48 per cent increase in visitors to its website.
