Nycomed Amersham received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, which is given in recognition for a company’s outstanding achievement in technology, exports, or environmental performance. Queen Elizabeth grants the awards on her April 21st birthday.

The company’s headquarters are located in the U.K. while its North American operations are headquartered in Princeton, NJ.

The company’s U.K. imaging business group won the award for its continuous achievement in export sales from 1994 to 1999. During this time, Nycomed’s British exports more than doubled. Over half of Nycomed’s success came through sales from the U.S. office. Myoview, a heart imaging agent, and OncoSeed, a treatment for prostate cancer, were best-sellers, said Daniel L. Peters, Nycomed Imaging’s U.S. president. The company has won the Queen’s Award 14 times in the last 33 years.
