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. 


Now in its 56th year, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the country, with winning businesses able to use the esteemed Queen’s Awards Emblem for the next five years. 

Speaking at the event, Mrs Lopez said: ‘International Trade Week is DIT’s biggest exporting event and provides a great chance to showcase and celebrate local businesses that export fantastic British products to the world. 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.’

Managing Director John Iszatt added: “Winning this award is a true privilege and reflects the hard work put in by all of our staff”.
