Metrasens presented with Queen's Award for EnterprisePublished: Friday, 28th September 2018
Metrasens, a leading provider of advanced magnetic detection technologies, was proud to receive a visit on 27 September from HRH The Duke of Gloucester.
His Royal Highness toured Metrasens’ production facility and met employees who explained the activities of the Company in three of its markets: Counter-Terror, MRI Patient Safety, and Mental Health Facility Security.
The visit culminated in The Duke presenting The Queen’s Award for Enterprise, Innovation, on behalf of H.M. The Queen. The honour is presented to Metrasens for its ground-breaking work in providing advanced screening capabilities, not available through conventional detection technologies. This is the second consecutive year Metrasens has received The Queen’s Award. In 2017, the company was recognised in the category of International Trade.
Metrasens’ solutions are used in hospitals to ensure patient safety in MRI suites. They are used in prisons to detect contraband and cell phones being smuggled into the facilities; and increasingly in secure government and commercial facilities to provide physical data-security. The company’s most recent innovation is a screening system which can be used at a variety of venues, such as sports arenas, large scale events like concerts and at corporate campuses to detect threats involving weapons of mass casualty, without causing disruption to the flow of people.
