Last year Midland Lead was crowned International Business of the Year at the East Midlands FSB Awards in the East Midlands.
As a result, Midland Lead was entered into the UK finals which took place on 27 May and they have been delighted to sit along such great finalists from all over the UK.
The online event centred around a Champions Club that the FSB created to recognise and applaud businesses across the UK, and how they have strived and thrived during the many challenging times.
Midland Lead was shortlisted as a result of their outstanding performance, customer service and work overseas and they clearly demonstrated why they are experts in export.From UK to UAE, the company supply a range of lead-based products in large and small quantities for a wide range of projects. In many cases, logistics and documentation can be complex, but their customers know they apply their expertise and experience to advise and navigate the fine detail of customs procedures. Since the new legislation was introduced around exporting product as a result of BREXT, the team has been on a steep learning curve but maintained their expertise in understanding how to efficiently transport goods. They have also been able to assist and guide their customers through this journey every step of the way.
Boudewijn Tuinenburg, Managing Director, is delighted to have got this far; “We work with organisations from many sectors all over the world including healthcare and construction. Being announced as UK Finalists is a testament to how our export team is dedicated to building relationships with customers, wherever they are.
“I am so proud of our team and how far we have come together. The past few years our group export strategy has been to focus on specific markets, such as Africa and UAE and we will continue to serve customers in the UK and beyond. Congratulations also to the other finalists in this category, it’s a real honour to be recognised alongside such leading lights in international trade.”
