RXG Redring Xpelair has been named Exporter of the Year Award in the prestigious Peterborough Telegraph Business Awards 2014.
The award was presented in recognition of Redring Xpelair’s export performance, which saw the company sell its market leading hot water and ventilation solutions to 70 countries last year and establish Xpelair Middle East, a joint venture between Glen Dimplex Group and Kingston Holdings.
The company has focused on working with colleagues in international Glen Dimplex offices to develop a bigger presence in overseas markets, increasing local market intelligence and enabling a quicker response to market trends. Strong relationships have also continued with long-standing distributor partners in other regions, whilst new markets for OEM business have been identified.
The awards are recognised as the region’s premier business awards and a showcase for success stories amongst local businesses and entrepreneurs. RXG Redring Xpelair Group’s International Team of Alice Nicol (International Product Manager), Paul Poulter (International Sales Manager), Nick Parfrey (International Sales Manager), and Carole Clydesdale (Export Admin Team Leader) picked up the trophy as part of a night of celebrations at the Peterborough Arena.
Alice Nicol said:
“This is a fantastic reward for all the hard work put in by the team here in Peterborough and within our global network.
“Redring Xpelair has a long tradition of exporting products all over the world but we took a strategic decision to turn the company into an international business, rather than seeing ourselves purely as exporters. This new approach has enabled us to develop a strong understanding of international opportunities, developing products and services for these individual markets as opposed to taking a product made for use in UK and trying to export it.
“We sell products all across the world but it is still fantastic to be recognised locally as a key employer and business success story in the region.”
