Insider’s International Trade Awards
We’ve Been Recognised for our Achievements in International Trade
We’re delighted to announce that our metal detection business, METTLER TOLEDO Safeline was awarded highly commended status at Insider’s International Trade Awards. We attended the glittering awards ceremony in Salford on Thursday 7th December, where we were finalists in three categories – Excellence and Innovation in International Trade, International Company of the Year (£26m – £40m turnover), and Team of the Year.
Our metal detectors are manufactured at regional centres of excellence – based in Salford in the UK, and at our Changzhou plant in China for our customers in Asia. Approximately 95% of our metal detection systems are exported to food and pharmaceutical manufacturers across the world; international trade is a big part of our business.
As a recipient of highly commended status in the Excellence and Innovation in International Trade award category, judges recognised METTLER TOLEDO Safeline for our innovative designs and robust manufacturing processes. This has enabled us to achieve international success and find new opportunities in mature and emerging markets.
As a finalist in the International Company of the Year (£26m – £40m turnover) award, judges recognised METTLER TOLEDO Safeline for our success in global markets and our contribution to rebalancing the economy through our successful growth strategy and overseas sales in 2017.
Judges also recognised METTLER TOLEDO Safeline for our commitment to developing a team of well-trained, motivated, capable people through investment in staff training and who have a core focus on customers, leading to METTLER TOLEDO Safeline being nominated for the Team of the Year award.
On receiving the 3 nominations and the highly commended status at the awards, METTLER TOLEDO Safeline’s Managing Director, Alan Purvis said: “We are thrilled to have been recognised for our achievements in international trade. We have an exceptional team here in Salford and across the world, ensuring we deliver the highest quality products so that our customers meet regulatory requirements, maximise consumer safety, protect their brands and optimise their overall equipment effectiveness.”
