Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is delighted to congratulate Worthing based Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd and Brighton based tlmNEXUS on becoming among this year’s recipients of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

The Queens Award for Enterprise 2018 seeks to recognise UK businesses and other organisations for their outstanding performance in any one of these categories: innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity through social mobility. 


Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd won recognition for innovation through its continuous development of digital thermometers using advanced technology.


tlmNEXUS Ltd who operate in the defence sector displayed exceptional innovation in producing software that enables a collaborative approach to manage the risk to aircraft safety.

Jonathan Sharrock, Chief Executive at Coast to Capital said:


“The two businesses who have won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Coast to Capital region are a testament to the highly innovative nature of businesses in our area and both are a credit to our region as a whole.”



David Appleton, Co-founder and Director at tlmNEXUS said:


“When we founded the business, we had a dream to use technology to improve inefficient processes within the military, to make things run more smoothly. We never dreamed that a few years down the line we would be receiving Royal recognition for one of our products.


Peter Webb MBE, Managing Director of Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd commented:


"I feel immensely proud and honoured to have received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for a fourth time.  We have always prioritised investment in research, development and innovation and the Queen’s Award for Innovation recognises our continued commitment to providing our customers with pioneering temperature measuring solutions using the latest technology.  I am lucky to have such a dedicated and supportive workforce, who without their hard work and commitment this honour would not have been possible.  By keeping our manufacturing and Research & Development in the UK we have been able to support our local economy whilst successfully continuing to grow the business.”
