The Queen’s Award is the highest honour that a British business can win and was first proposed by Prince Phillip in 1965 to celebrate British industry. Nowadays companies can win a Queen’s Award for innovation, international trade, sustainable development and opportunity through social mobility – the Voluntary Service Award is equivalent to receiving the MBE.

The award required two independent audits and was an intense process for the company as Jonathan Kane explains: “We were interviewed by experts who asked a lot of questions, and gave nothing away; it felt like Dragon’s Den.

“Another group investigated if our Kane Care promise delivered its guaranteed same-day service and recertification or your money back, 10- year warranty when annually serviced and recertified by the company and 20-year all-inclusive pricing. Thanks to years of five-star customer comments on Trustpilot and the auditors’ forensic investigation of our accounts, turnaround times and refunds, they agreed that Kane Care does uphold its promise.”

Kane Care also includes free overnight tracked delivery to and from Kane and free theft protection – customers get 50% off a new Kane analyser if theirs is stolen.

The Queen’s Awards were announced on her birthday and published in the London Gazette. Kane got to meet the Royal family and receive their award from Her Majesty’s representative, the Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire and can now promote their fantastic achievement for the next five years.

Jonathan added: “Last year we said goodbye to our longest reigning monarch and the King will soon decide whether to continue the award, rename or leave it in her name.

“Whatever happens as Kane turns 60 and prepares itself for the next decade of challenges and opportunities, we thank Her Majesty for introducing this unique award.
