Tuesday 11 June 2019



We are proud to announce that Dr Mike Ashmead, Founder and Chairman of Encocam Ltd, was awarded the status of Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list announced on Saturday 8 June 2019.

The OBE was specifically awarded in recognition for services to Exports and Innovation in engineering.

He started the Huntingdon-based business in 1988; today Encocam Ltd employs over 200 people. Mike had an ambition to produce his own aluminium honeycomb and has developed a business with expertise in the design and manufacture of composite panels and energy absorbers. The company, which has developed market-leading products, began exporting in 1990. It is now one of the region’s largest exporters with offices in the UK, Spain, Holland, Germany, US and Japan, exporting over 80 per cent of its total production.

Dr Mike Ashmead, Founder and Chairman of Cellbond, said: “When I started the company in 1988, I did not anticipate just how much it would develop over the years. Through the hard work and dedication of many people we have grown and continue to do so.’’

We offer our congratulations to Mike on being awarded this notable and prestigious honour.
