Retail Technology Firm Wins Queen’s Award for International Trade

Retail IT consulting and technology firm REPL Group has been announced as a winner of the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category. The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are awarded to UK businesses for outstanding achievements in four categories.

Specialising in workforce transformation, supply chain, customer experience and enterprise systems, REPL’s work with UK retailers has allowed it to expand its retail expertise into the global market and take best of breed practices and adapt them to deliver real value to customers worldwide.

As well as its West Midlands headquarters, REPL also holds offices in Dallas, Singapore, South Africa and Japan. This worldwide presence has allowed REPL to enter new markets including Canada, Germany, Australia, Indonesia and South Korea to become a truly global company. REPL created teams on the ground in each region to harness their expertise and knowledge within the local markets while also operating internationally to ensure knowledge is shared and customers receive the best advice.

REPL’s overseas trading success, focus on global growth and aim to grow its international market to exceed UK market turnover within the next three years were key to the company’s awards success. The win comes after Prime Minister Theresa May recommended the company receive the award, a decision which was then approved by Her Majesty The Queen.

Mike Callender, executive chairman of REPL commented: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category – made even more of an honour as it comes with the backing of The Queen herself. The accolade means so much to the entire team at REPL and really showcases the success we have seen over the last few years. Two years ago, we set a five-year plan which included hitting £100m turnover by 2021/22; we have succeeded in achieving our targets for the past two years and are currently on track to again deliver against the plan this year.”

Cerys Johnson, CEO, REPL added: “Winning the Queen’s Award is one of the highest honours we could ever wish to have. It’s great to have something that acknowledges those businesses that have been brave, bold and big on ambition and have been prepared to put in the extra mile in order to achieve something exceptional.”
