Pepperneck Limited is offering local manufacturing and engineering companies a no obligation Export Marketing Review in support of the forthcoming Export Week, taking place from 11th – 15th November.
Run by UKTI, Export Week will see a number of events and activities taking place around the country which aim to increase the number of British companies that export by at least 25 per cent. Launching UKTI’s previous Export Week which took place in May of this year, Lord Green, Trade and Investment Minister, advised that increased export activity at this level could contribute £36 billion to the UK’s economy.
Pepperneck provides global marketing support for a wide range of UK and international engineering and manufacturing companies. With over 60 years of board level experience, it particularly prides itself on its marketing for export service, where it works closely with other agencies including MAS and UKTI to help clients break into overseas markets. Export Marketing Reviews from Pepperneck look at the effectiveness of current marketing activities across online and off line channels, and include recommendations in areas where potential improvements can be made.
Strategic global marketing support from Pepperneck has helped long-standing client, Invertek Drives, increase its business by more than 300% in the last five years, whilst Shropshire based manufacturer, Filtermist, has reported a 25% increase in export sales since 2010.
Pepperneck’s Managing Director, Steve Adams, explains, “We work very closely with a number of UK based clients for whom export is a major focus of their business. Successful international marketing requires quite a different approach to B2B marketing in the UK. An understating of how each territory works and extensive experience of working with international satellite companies and carefully selected distributors as routes to market are all key to developing a successful global marketing programme.”
Invertek’s export success has led to a host of recent international trade award wins - in April it won the International Trade category at the UK Energy Innovation Awards 2013 and it was a finalist in the export category at the Made in Wales Awards 2013, which took place last month.
Invertek’s Sales and Marketing Director, Rhydian Welson, says, “Export trade has played a significant part in the growth of our business from the outset as a significant amount of the world’s manufacturing base is outside of the UK. More than 95% of our output is currently destined for export markets. Both winning, and being shortlisted for awards in export, is an excellent achievement that consolidates our efforts overseas.”
UKTI offers a range of services and funding packages to support UK companies looking to expand their business via export - Pepperneck is able to help local companies access this funding and develop strategic marketing plans proven to make a measurable difference to business.
