4th December 2018 - His Royal Highness, the Duke of Kent awarded local business Monodraught Ltd the Queen’s Award for Innovation. His Royal Highness was accompanied by a number of other local dignitaries including the Lord-Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, the High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, the Chair of Wycombe District Council, the Chair of Buckinghamshire County Council, the Leader of Wycombe District Council and the Mayor of High Wycombe.
The award was granted for the Cool-phase cooling and ventilation solution which provides intelligent control of ventilation and cooling using phase change materials. There can be a high cost to business of maintaining a comfortable working environment with regulated temperature and fresh air. With combined capital and running cost savings of on average 60% compared to air conditioning, the system delivers significant efficiencies for businesses, as well as dramatically reducing their environmental footprint.
Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire said:
“I would like to congratulate Monodraught on winning the award. The company is testimony to the ambitions of business and to the skills and commitment of those who work in such a successful enterprise. They are an example to us all and they add to the prosperity and vitality of Buckinghamshire”
Receiving the award, Andrew McCubbin, Managing Director of Monodraught said:
“This is a landmark moment in Monodraught’s history, and represents the culmination of years of engineering innovation. Looking to the future, we will continue to be open minded, and have the courage to be creative and forward thinking. Cool-phase is one of a stable of innovative Monodraught products that are considered market leaders. We believe the world of today needs environmentally sustainable solutions more than ever, and we are very proud to play our part.”
