THE Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire has visited a Petersfield firm to present it with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
Morgan Innovation and Technology makes medical pain relief equipment – lesion generators – for an American firm, which are shipped around the world for use in hospitals, as well as other medical industry-related products.
Co-owner and managing director Sue Clarke said: ‘It was started by my husband Howard and I in 1987.
‘He’s a designer, an inventor, so we needed a company to exploit the ideas we had.
‘Now we have about 60 per cent of the world market.’
It is for their exports that the company won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category.
During the past three years Morgan has increased its overseas earnings by 84 per cent and its exports now account for 85 per cent of its annual sales.
It is also developing new ideas, in areas like stroke treatment and sleep apnoea.
