Sliding and folding door hardware manufacturer P C HENDERSON has been named Export Business of the Year at the British Chamber Awards.
Managing director Trevor Cossins said: “Exporting on the scale that we do isn’t easy - it takes a huge amount of dedication. We’ve listened to our customers first hand and transferred this knowledge into developing products that suit specific market requirements. To be named the best exporting company in the UK is recognition of the highest kind and we couldn’t be happier”.
Held at Tobacco Dock, London, the 15th Annual British Chamber Awards welcomed over 70 companies from all corners of the UK to battle it out across 14 award categories.
James Ramsbotham, chief executive of North East England Chamber of Commerce, added “The Chamber was established by businesses to support each other’s desire to expand their marketplaces overseas and P C Henderson are a great example of this same ambition today. Congratulations to everyone there who has worked so hard to achieve success.”
This latest success is now the fourth award the company has won for its exporting achievements in under two years. Judges cited product adaptation, meeting market specific preferences and putting the diverse needs and preferences of its customers as the reasons behind its success.
