Global energy and commodity news and price reporting agency Argus has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, which recognises business excellence. The UK’s most prestigious business accolade is based on recommendation from the Prime Minister to the Queen and has been given to Argus in recognition of its performance in international trade.  

Argus is one of 105 UK companies to receive the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the international trade division this year. Argus won its first Queen’s Award in 2002. 

Argus was named one of the UK’s fastest growing exporters last year in the “Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200”, which ranks privately owned UK firms in terms of export growth. Argus has appeared in this league table annually since it was launched in 2012.

Argus Media chairman and chief executive Adrian Binks said: “We are delighted that Argus has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for the third time. Over the last five years we have greatly expanded our range of services as well as developing further our pre-existing products. We are proud to receive this recognition of our success.”
