Aico was honoured to receive Her Royal Highness Princess Anne at its headquarters in early October in recognition of its impact as a prominent business in Shropshire.
Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal arrived at Aico’s headquarters in Oswestry, Shropshire and was met by Aico’s managing director Neal Hooper, alongside Mandy Thorn, deputy lieutenant of Shropshire, Vince Hunt, chairman of Shropshire Council, Owen Paterson, MP for North Shropshire, Mark Jones, Mayor of Oswestry, and Ruth Jones, Mayoress of Oswestry.
Her Royal Highness was given a tour of Aico’s facilities, providing Her Royal Highness with an insight into the company’s history, its innovations in home life safety and its award-winning CSR programme. At the end of the visit, Her Royal Highness was presented with a horse headcollar adorned with an Aico monogram.
Neal Hooper, managing director, Aico, said, “Aico is committed to achieving the highest quality in all that we do and this is evident in our passionate staff, continued innovation, exceptional service and unrivalled support.
“Our philosophy has provided a foundation for growth, constantly driving forwards and seeking new ways of doing things. To receive this recognition from Her Royal Highness is nothing short of an absolute honour; we are privileged to have been able to share Aico’s ethos with The Princess Royal.”
