Despite the tough economic climate in Europe, Castle Metals have still grown their export business by focusing on their strategy to expand into new markets. Export business has grown 70% in the Far East compared to 2011, 76% growth in Finland, 66% in France and 64% in Eastern Europe.
As one of the large stainless steel stockholders in the UK, Castle Metals aims to have strong local links as well as global success and are pleased to have this recognised at the International Trade Club Awards, which recognises the work of exporters and importers.
Ed Murphy, International Trade and Training Director at East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce said: “The International Trade Club annual awards and lunch event is a great opportunity to thank the many East Lancs companies engaged in International Trade for their hard work and success throughout the year as this directly benefits everyone in the local economy. Award winners are recognised by their peers for their outstanding performance.”
Castle are maintaining their visibility in export markets by regularly exhibiting around the world, ensuring sales people are out in their territories visiting businesses, and ensuring their export control procedures are second to none in their industry.
The export strategy for the coming year is to maintain focus in the markets that have shown growth, and centre attention on thriving business in Scandinavia’s Pulp and Paper industry where their products travel particularly well. With a positive outlook and a strong, developing sales team, Castle Metals are confident of future success in exporting.
The above also follows on from being highly commended in previous years for the Outstanding Export Achievement award showing our consistency and success in global speciality metals exports.
