Best exporter

PC Henderson was named Export Business of the Year at the recent British Chamber Awards.

After winning the regional finals of the North East Business Awards in April, the company was selected by the North East England Chamber of Commerce to represent the region at the national finals. The firm then beat off eight other companies in its category to be named the best exporting company in the UK.

Trevor Cossins, managing director at PC Henderson, 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.

PC Henderson’s export sales currently account for over 70% of overall sales and the company exports to over 70 countries worldwide.
