International Trade Awards 2010 – presented on 10th December 2010

Article Date: 16 August 2010


International Trade activities provide and secure many jobs in our economy. Exporting companies face tremendous challenges and must compete in increasingly competitive global markets to help their businesses grow and the UK economy remain strong. Importing companies help secure overseas supplies often for products that are not made or grown in the UK. Once again it is the International Trade Club's privilege to present this year's International Trade Awards.

The International Trade Awards recognise and promote the quality, diversity and ingenuity of successful, local companies engaged in international trade. The International Trade Club is extremely proud to be able to salute some of East Lancashire's most talented business people through these Awards.

Winning awards is an opportunity for outstanding businesses to come to the attention of the wider community and to new potential customers. Previous winners include: Metal Improvement company, Acorn Digital International Inks, ACDC Lighting to name but a few.

AcornDigital wins award for start up business

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting AcornDigital inks on Victoria Street, Accrington who have won awards for their start business developing and manufacturing high quality labeling inks for bottles or cans such as date stamps, or batch stamp.

Within six months of setting up they are already winning export contracts as far away as China and gaining a reputation for innovation and quality.

Myself, Chris Raynor and staff at AcornDigital

Previously I have got behind Emerson and Renwick in their efforts to clear red tape and gain a level playing field in export contracts and this week I have been to major employer, Senator International.

Promoting growth and employment has to be any MP's top priority. I have written to the Council to try and develop a more joined up approach helping businesses in Haslingden and Hyndburn.

Chris Rayner co-owner:

Acorn Digital an Accrington inkjet company with global ambitions were delighted to welcome local MP Graham Jones to their HQ and manufacturing facility based in Accrington.

We are a company looking to expand through export and are proud to be in Accrington. We have been helped significantly by the East Lancs Chamber of Commerce and in particular Steff Haywood who has helped us greatly through our rapid growth.

Our mission is to expand rapidly and to employ and train Accrington people where possible. We also want to make Accrington world famous for high quality inkjet ink and not just a famous 80s milk commercial
