Internet surveyor and mapping service Majestic has added a second Queen’s Award for Enterprise to its list of prestigious accolades.
Awarded on Wednesday 20th September, the prize recognised outstanding performance in international trade and was presented at Innovation Birmingham’s iCentrum building by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of the West Midlands John Crabtree OBE.
The coup doubled the royal acclaim for the distributed search engine, accompanying its existing Queen’s Award for Innovation received in 2016. Dixon Jones, Chief Marketing Officer said:
“This is a really hard award to win, it’s one of the best honours that the company can get and it’s because we’ve got customers in over 100 countries. For a small company like Majestic that’s an absolutely incredible feat.”
In addition to an official presentation from a Lord-Lieutenant, winners of a Queen’s Award for Enterprise are also invited to a reception at Buckingham Palace, provided with a Grant of Appointment and commemorative crystal bowl.
The Birmingham-based tech firm joined the Innovation Birmingham Campus in 2010 and is now used by New Media specialists and online marketing experts, reaching over 100 countries.
Now recognised as the planet’s largest link index database, Majestic began its strive for international success in May 2015 as it launched a bid to increase trading in Europe through content marketing.
Available in 12 languages, Majestic data has been tailored around a multi-lingual approach, aided by a series of channels such as Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube and the Majestic blog.
