We are delighted to announce that Her Majesty The Queen has selected Fluvial Innovations Ltd as winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation. This prestigious accolade is for the development of our patented flood barrier systems, Floodstop, which protects properties against the cost and misery which arises from flooding.
Founder and managing director, Simon Phelps commented:
“We are delighted to be awarded such an incredible and highly esteemed award. This is a huge achievement for Fluvial Innovations. We are proud not only of our commercial success but also in knowing that we are providing a solution to the enormous misery, disruption and cost resulting from flooding.”
From launching the product in 2008, Floodstop has since been sold throughout the world protecting private households, businesses, governmental bodies and vital infrastructures. Its prestigious client list includes nuclear sites, San Francisco public utilities, The UK Environment Agency, Coca Cola, Warsaw Metro, The National Trust and The RAF.

In winning this award Fluvial Innovations joins a very select band of elite UK companies across all industries.
