Havering-based Silverhook has scooped a Queens Award for Enterprise.
The lubricant manufacturer was presented with a certificate by Havering’s Deputy Lieutenant, Nick Bracken OBE DL, King Charles’ representative in the borough, and a commemorative glass bowl by Hornchurch & Upminster MP, Julia Lopez.
Silverhook was formed in 1994 and is run by brothers John, Peter, and Michael Iszatt. As one of the few independent lubricant blenders based in the UK, the Award celebrates the firm’s success in exporting products to customers in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and the Far East.

It was a pleasure to see Havering’s Silverhook recognised for its excellence through a Queen’s Award for International Trade, and I was really glad to be able to celebrate their successes with the Deputy Lieutenant and Silverhook’s hard working team.’
