Queen's Award Presentation

Following our Queens Award win we were presented with the Rose Bowl & Scroll of Association by the Lord Lieutenancy of Merseyside..


After being awarded the prestigious accolade and visiting Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s Award’s Reception, Bibby Maritime were visited by the Merseyside Lieutenancy on Tuesday 23rd August 2016 to be presented with the Rose Bowl, Scroll of Association and to be given the Grant of Appointment for the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Merseyside, Dame Lorna Muirhead DBE was accompanied by Deputy Lieutenant, Mrs Pamela Brown MBE, Clerk to the Lieutenancy, Lieutenant Colonel Sean McEvoy BEM and the Lord-Lieutenant’s Secretary, Mrs Lorraine Shaw. Sir Michael Bibby and the whole Bibby Maritime team greeted the Lieutenancy party in the Bibby Line Group board room for the unique occasion. Proceedings began with Sir Michael giving a welcome address and introducing the Lieutenancy to the members of the Bibby Maritime team along with reflecting on the reasons behind the accommodation barge’s success which led to the company receiving the Queen’s Award.

Dame Lorna then gave the following foreword & began the Reading of the Grant of Appointment, “The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the UK’s most prestigious business awards, designed to recognise and encourage the achievements by businesses in the UK, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man in the fields of Innovation, International Trade and Sustainable Development.  The Queen’s Awards Scheme, originally known as The Queen’s Award to Industry, was instituted by Royal Warrant in 1965. The first Awards were made in 1966. 

Companies that are growing, innovating and championing UK business deserve the recognition that these awards bestow.  The Award is a prestigious honour for a company to receive and demonstrates what an enterprising nation we are.  The fact that small businesses can share these honours with large household names illustrates that they are the backbone of our economy and deserve to be recognised as such.

Winning businesses come from a range of sectors including, technology, fashion, food and drink, media, IT and construction, and range from enterprising small businesses, with just a handful of employees, to companies employing thousands.  The government is committed to supporting small businesses throughout the country to provide an environment that engenders growth.

Today we recognise one such Company; Bibby Maritime Limited, who justly deserve this accolade for International Trade.”

Jon Osborne, Managing Director of Bibby Maritime was then presented with the Scroll of Association & Rose Bowl, and concluded the presentation by giving a proud response on behalf of the company, “On behalf of the directors of Bibby Maritime Limited, I am very pleased to accept this prestigious award in recognition of our success in International Trade.  Since the award was announced we have won a contract in South Korea, which is a new country for us.  We are also gearing up for the delivery of Bibby WaveMaster 1 which is the only British owned Service Operations Vessel, supporting the offshore wind farms which are springing up around the European coastlines.

We are very aware that our company shares the name of our major shareholders, the Bibby family, and so it is important to us not only to succeed in the traditional sense of profit and employment but to do so with ethics and principles, ensuring that the family's values are encapsulated in the way in which we do business.

And so to conclude, we are looking forward to further success driven by our talented team here in our home city of Liverpool and I thank you again for the kind recognition.”
