Weldtite has been selected to join the Export Champion Community, after being awarded Export Champion status in the Yorkshire and Humberside region.
International trade secretary and president of the Board of Trade, Dr Liam Fox MP, launched the new Export Champions Community at the Board of Trade meeting in Durham on 28th February. The Export Champions Community will play a ‘key role’ in the Department for International Trade’s Export Strategy.
Fox said: “The Export Champion Community is an important initiative and its members will play a vital role in creating the culture of exporting that my international economic department is building in Britain by raising the profile of exporting across the country, expanding horizons, removing barriers to market access and facilitating expansion here in the UK. Supported by a community of the UK’s leading exporters, I am confident that our businesses will continue to grow their exports in the months and years ahead.”
Weldtite develops and manufactures bike maintenance products including TF2 Lubricants, Dirtwash and Cyclo Tools from its UK factory on the banks of the River Humber. In 2018, it exported to 45 countries across the globe.
James Buckle, international sales manager at Weldtite, said: “The international market continues to grow in importance for Weldtite. We export to Asia, Australasia, Africa, North America, South America and Europe. We are delighted to have been recognised for our successful international track record and seek to encourage business in our region to join us in strengthening the local economy by selling overseas.”
