The Queen's Award is a breath of fresh air to Poole based company

BOFA International Ltd has been honoured with the UK’s most prestigious business accolade, The Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

Recognised for their outstanding achievements in export sales, first time winners BOFA are the market leaders in fume extraction and filtration with over 25 years’ experience covering the sectors of Laser, Electronics, Mechanical Engineering, Printing, Dental, Medical and Beauty industries.

The company started by Dave Cornell in 1987 had somewhat humble beginnings with the first BOFA unit built with the aid of his son in his garage. Now some 25 years later the company employees 110 staff and exports to more than 100 countries. Despite starting in a recession their utter determination and hard work has truly paid off with significant overseas trading growth of 108% in the last 3 years.

Dave Cornell, Chairman of BOFA said, “This award is really for the whole BOFA team and reflects their consistent hard work. From day one, I knew our systems and service would revolutionise the marketplace. We are now the market leader and we expect to retain this position, as we grow further in the coming years. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our customers and of course everyone at the Queen’s Award office for this wonderful honour.”
