Supacat wins Queen’s Award for International Trade

Devon-based Supacat, which designs and manufactures high-mobility and protected vehicles for armed forces across the world, has won the Queen’s Award for International Trade for Outstanding Short Term Growth.

In the past three years Supacat’s overseas earnings have grown from £2.5 million to over £32 million on the back of orders for products such as its Special Forces HMT Extenda vehicle, which have been the subject of a substantial recent order from Australia’s armed forces.

Supacat, which for a number of years has supplied vehicles to the UK military, has also recently won new contracts for its vehicles from Norway and New Zealand and is now actively pursuing emerging opportunities with new export customers in locations including the US, Middle East and China.

Established in 1980, Supacat is part of SC Group, which provides engineering solutions to sectors including oil and gas, nuclear, marine and renewables.

Nick Ames, CEO of SC Group, said: “This is wonderful news for our business and we are very proud to be a winner of this very prestigious award. All the stakeholders of the business are delighted and are enthused to continue to pursue first-class export opportunities, especially recognising the national need for exports during these changing times.

“We are particularly proud of this award given the challenging circumstances UK defence businesses face in selling their products to international customers and into one of the most openly competitive home markets.”
