Royal visit

Her Royal Highness joined Jackloc on its stand for Big Tuesday to celebrate the firm winning The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation 2017.

The real Queen impersonator helped the Leicestershire firm create a buzz in the halls of the NEC and on social media, leading to Jackloc’s most successful FIT Show appearance.

“The FIT Show proved to be a great success for The Jackloc Company,” Emma Wells, founder and director at Jackloc, said. “We were looking at ways to make us stand out from the crowd and to recognise our huge achievement of winning The Queen’s Award and inviting ‘Her Majesty’ along certainly proved popular with visitors.

Judith Burrows, Emma’s sister and fellow Jackloc director, said: “We wanted to go to The FIT Show and show why our product has won this highly prestigious award and become the leading window and door restrictor, used by a wide range of organisations across the world. Leaving Birmingham with an abundance of enquiries and high-value leads shows we have achieved what we set out to do.”

Adopted by homeowners as well as health authorities, hotel and leisure chains, and commercial and residential developments, Jackloc provides a versatile range of universal cable restrictors.
