Rockit, the company behind the innovative portable baby rocker, announce it has been honoured with two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise.
Bristol based N2M Ltd, which trades as Rockit is one of only seven companies in the UK to achieve two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in 2022. Announced on Thursday 21 April, Rockit has been recognised for its excellence in both international trade and also innovation.
Rockit designs, manufactures and markets sleep aid devices for babies and toddlers. They launched their leading product, the game-changing Rockit portable baby rocker in 2017 and have achieved exceptional success both in the UK and in international trade with sales to over 40 countries.
Rockit inventor and co-founder Dr. Nick Webb said: “I invented our first product to help my own daughter to sleep when her pram stopped moving. All our products including the Rockit stroller rocker have innovation at their core and are now sold all over the world, so it is particularly satisfying to win both the innovation and international trade awards”.
Co-founder and director Matt Dyson adds: “It is a fantastic achievement to be honoured with two Queens Awards, especially given the fact that we are such a small team and have to turn our hands to all aspects of the business, from design innovation through to marketing, sales and logistics. We are so excited to be invited to Buckingham Palace in July to receive our awards”.
