Adder Technology has announced it has been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for excellence in International Trade. Cambridge-based Adder designs and manufacturers market-leading high-performance connectivity solutions that are distributed globally via an expanding network of distributors, resellers and system integrators to over 60 countries.

This award follows Adder’s previous commendations by the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in 2001 and 2014 for International Trade and Innovation respectively. Now, in their 54th year, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are deemed the most prestigious business awards in the UK.

Founded in 1984 by current CEO Adrian Dickens, Adder is a global pioneer and leader in the design and manufacture of innovative enterprise technology that enables users to securely access and control computers from anywhere in the world via a standard IP network.

Adder Technology is a specialist in connectivity solutions and high-performance IP KVM.

In order to support its growing network of partners and customers around the world, Adder has established offices in key locations throughout Asia, Europe and the Americas.

Adder founder and CEO Adrian Dickens said: “We are extremely proud to win another Queen’s Award – this time recognising our International Trade efforts. Earlier in the year, we were delighted to announce a multi-million dollar investment to support our global expansion and I consider this accolade as an acknowledgement of the fantastic work undertaken by the team at Adder. This award will surely add to the momentum of the organisation’s growth as it reinforces our commitment to improving the connectivity needs of our customers.”

Adder started 2020 at pace with the announcement of a multi-million dollar global expansion, two successful product launches, the introduction of a 24/7 Elite Professional Service programme and inclusion in the Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200, all within the first three months.
