JMDA wins prestigious Queen’s Award For Enterprise 2019

Promotional Business Feature

We are delighted to announce that JMDA Design are winners of the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2019 for International Trade.

Honoured to be recognised for our outstanding contribution to child car seat safety globally, winning a Queen’s Award for JMDA Design is the pinnacle of the last 28 years of innovative product design which has resulted in over 95 car seats having been designed by the team to date.

Building a strong reputation for designing child car seats which strive to increase safety and reduce serious injury in road traffic accidents, has enabled JMDA Design to become a global leader in the Child Restraint System (CRS) industry. Demonstrating impressive growth over the last three years, we are an award-winning product design agency with offices in Worcestershire (UK), Shanghai (China) and Badia Polesine (Italy).

“We were all overwhelmed when the news of our Queen’s Award was announced! Our journey started in 1991 when I began the business with my wife Cherril Barker, who is the Marketing and Finance Director at JMDA. Of course, the landscape of child car seat design was very different back then, but our commitment to child safety has never changed and we’re delighted to now be designing our 97th child car seat.” Derrick Barker, Creative and Managing Director at JMDA Design

He adds, “It really is a team effort at JMDA and winning a Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2019 for International Trade makes me extremely proud of everything we’ve achieved over the years. Our dedication to the industry is now even stronger than ever!”

Representatives from JMDA Design will attend a royal reception for the Queen’s Award winners in the summer, plus the Lord-Lieutenant of the county will visit JMDA’s HQ in Worcestershire and confer the award by a Grant of Appointment which will be symbolised by the presentation of an impressive commemorative trophy.
