Export Champions 2024 announcement

Our MD, Gary Stevens and Head of Strategic Partnerships, Duncan Ray are delighted to accept an invitation from the Department for Business and Trade (DBT), to join the Export Champions’ programme representing Southern England 2024/25.

Recognised for a historic first in our industry in 2017 when we became the first and only British and European manufacturer to gain factory accreditation to supply and sell wiring accessories directly from Europe to mainland China, achieving a full licence for all of our products, Mr Stevens was then one of the first to be invited by the DBT to join the Export Champions’ programme which launched in 2019.

Mr Stevens commented: “Delighted to accept the invitation to continue the good work for the DBT as Export Champion and honoured to be one of a few select companies to have two representatives from the same company with Duncan Ray's acceptance as Export Champion this year.”

In April 2023 we notably won a first ever The King’s Awards for Enterprise for International Trade with HRH The Princess Royal visiting us in November for a guided factory tour prior to presenting the crystal engraved winner trophy to Mr Stevens and unveiling a commemorative plaque manufactured by us in-house, a memorable occasion for all our employees.

The DBT’s Export Champions’ programme, launched in 2019 and highlights inspirational exporters who are willing to share their stories and support other SMEs aspiring to trade overseas. Export Champions are invited to share tips and informal advice with other businesses, attend DBT export events, host VIP visits and contribute to the development of DBT strategies as well as participate in roundtable discussions with senior officials and government ministers.
