LSUK wins Royal Warrant status for carriage work

LSUK, the automotive parts and service supplier which holds the lighting maintenance contract for the Queen's Golden Jubilee ceremonial coach, has been awarded the Royal Warrant. The Sheffield-based operation has long been associated with Royal supply through is parent company Lucas Automotive, which had maintained Royal carriage lighting for decades.

But the award means LSUK now has the right to use the Royal coat of arms and the words 'By appointment to her majesty the Queen, LSUK is a supplier of automotive electrical components' on stationery, advertisements, premises and vehicles.

The appointment follows months of research by LSUK's finance director Tony Harris and ledgers manager Mike Grunsell. Between them they had to back up warrant claims with every proof of purchase for horse carriage work carried out at the Royal mews in London and Balmoral since 1977.

“This is fantastic news for the business. We feel honoured and proud to have the LSUK name associated with Her Majesty the Queen,” says Harris. “We hope to continue to serve the Queen for many years to come.”
