The Queen's Award for Enterprise is considered to be the most distinguished award that recognizes exceptional achievement in business attained by companies in the UK. Based upon the size of the operations of a company, the company has to sustain continuity in development and innovation for a period of at least five years to be honored under the Innovation category.

The innovative technology from QTC includes advanced quantum effects.
