International Trade Secretary Dr Liam Fox MP recently launched the Export Champion Community in Durham, UK and PAXMAN’s CEO, Richard Paxman, joined the programme as an Export Advocate. This nationwide network of UK companies will act as ambassadors for exporting, sharing success stories, offering practical advice and leading by example.
This will see PAXMAN work with the Department for International Trade (DIT) to help promote the UK government’s message to their industry audience and get businesses thinking globally.
The Board of Trade meeting coincided with the launch and Dr Fox presented companies from across the Northern Powerhouse with Board of Trade Awards (BoFTAs) for their exceptional performance in international trade.
PAXMAN were proud to be amongst only 6 UK businesses to receive a BoFTA which is seen as a hallmark of British quality. These awards have become a globally-recognised certificate of excellence, shown on product labels of successful businesses from every corner of the UK.
