Hampshire-based Tonic Analytics has been honoured with an esteemed Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade. The Queen’s Awards celebrate the success of exciting and innovative businesses that are leading the way with pioneering products or services.

Presenting the award at the company’s base at Southampton Science Park, Nigel Atkinson Esq, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire, commented: “It has been my pleasure to visit Tonic Analytics here today. It is clear to me that this company’s innovative approach to high quality data analytics is making quite an impact and that the company is a shining example of the best of British business around the world. It is also good to see an Employee Ownership Trust in action whereby every team member is engaged and rewarded for his or her efforts. I look forward to hearing of Tonic Analytics future successes.”

Andy Dollin, Chief Operating Officer (pictured), expressed his gratitude to the Lord Lieutenant for his attendance. He said: “It has been an honour to welcome you here today, and for us to have an opportunity to showcase our work to you and our other esteemed guests.

“This prestigious Queen’s Award represents a major milestone for us. After first coming to Southampton Science Park as a start-up on the Catalyst business acceleration programme, we have seen our technology and services used by customers around the world, gained ISO accreditations and transitioned to an Employee Ownership Trust. This award recognises our achievements to date and positions us for further growth in a post-Brexit, post-pandemic world, and we look forward to extending our reach and capabilities in the years to come.”

Established in 2015 and now employing ten people at its base at Southampton Science Park, Tonic Analytics has invented an ingenious way to blend a wide range of data with predictive analysis to solve some of society’s big challenges. These range from saving lives on road networks and tackling crime to reducing airline delays and optimising offshore energy production.
