We are among nine other companies in the running for the exporter of the year award. This recognises Sewtec as a business that has “achieved the highest and most sustainable levels of international growth through exporting, using sustainable models and innovative practices”.

Now in its 18th year, Lloyds Bank National Business Awards recognises and rewards excellence across all sectors in the UK. Winners will be revealed at a black-tie awards ceremony attended by 1,200 business leaders, politicians and journalists on November 12 at the five-star Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

Sewtec designs, manufactures, installs and commissions complex industrial automation systems for global blue-chip clients in the pharmaceutical, personal care, pet care, food and beverage and tobacco industries. Clients include Nestlé, Procter & Gamble, Imperial Tobacco, Tata and Hershey.

More than 85 per cent of our sales are exports to 18 international markets and we have a presence in emerging, high-growth and mature markets including Poland and Russia.

Commenting on Sewtec’s shortlisting, managing director Mark Cook said: “Being named as a finalist is testament to our high and growing exporting levels and the sustainable commercial benefits that international trade is bringing to Sewtec and our employees. We look forward to the ceremony in November.

“Sewtec is small in size compared to global automation conglomerates, but we are at the forefront of this technology and well-positioned to lead clients towards faster, more accurate and cost-effective production. We have a powerful proposition and enormous potential to expand further in our chosen markets and sectors.”
