Revered Sikh business owner Dr Rami Ranger, has once again been recognised for the highly acclaimed attribute.
Her Majesty is graciously pleased to confer the most coveted award for business, the Queens Award for Enterprise 2011 to Sun Mark Ltd for a third year. It is an exceptional achievement by any company to win such a prestigious award and that too for a third consecutive year 2009, 2010 and 2011.
This extremely rare accomplishment is the culmination of great effort, organisation, and vision by the company which was founded and is led by Dr Rami Ranger MBE FRSA, an NRI, who has taken the company, in just 15 years, from a start-up business to one which is now recognised all over the world.
This Queens Award for Enterprise symbolizes the strength and credibility of the company, its positive contribution to the British economy and that it is amongst the best of British companies. The company’s sales continue to grow despite the global downturn caused by the financial meltdown. The company’s turnover grew by over 35% last year and is fast approaching £150 million and continuing to grow at 30% even now. It is a considerable achievement by any standard, especially when the company’s business has been affected by the events in countries such as Libya, Bahrain and Egypt.
The company exports British supermarket products to over 90 countries with staggering results and market penetration. Needless to say, due to its export activities, it not only generates wealth and employment for Britain directly, but also helps other British companies grow which are connected with its export activities like transport, shipping and manufacturing. It is fair to state that Sun Mark is an engine of growth for many other British businesses. This year Sun Mark was added to the prestigious Sunday Times Profit Track 100 emphasizing the company’s contribution to the British Exchequer in terms of profitability and taxes.
The Managing Director, Dr. Rami Ranger MBE, is optimistic that his company, which is a leading force in exports, will continue to drive hard and be a recipient for many more such awards for sustainable growth and for excellence. He said that the third award recognizes the company’s ethos of hard work, ethical practices and above all empathy for others.
The company’s motto is, “we only succeed when our customers succeed” and this is the bedrock of the company’s strength.
