Aspen® Pumps Win International Trade Award for London and South East


By Marcus Leach

At the International Trade Awards, sponsored by Santander Corporate Banking, are proud to announce that Aspen Pumps are the winners for London and South East regional award.

The prestigious awards exclusively recognise the UK's leading importers and exporters, who have, in the face of adversity given the challenges posed by the current global economic climate, excelled over the past year.

"It's great to receive a reward that recognises UK manufacturing and export, people who have actually gone through the barriers," said Adrian Thompson of Aspen Pumps.

"One of the key things we do is we culturally align ourselves in the markets. We employ local market specialist, we have all our literature aimed at specific regional cultures, and to have that recognition is fantastic. UK manufacturers are something of mythical beasts now so to be recognised is a real honour."

Howard Barrie, Eversheds Head of Trade Finance said, “As an international law firm with a strong local presence, we were keen to get involved in these awards because international trade forms a crucial part of our region’s economy and is key in these challenging economic times. We have taken many major corporate clients into new jurisdictions and advise on global trade from our 44 offices around the world. These awards are an excellent showcase of local talent and we are delighted to be working in partnership with Santander to reward businesses who have excelled in this area”.

Despite turmoil in global markets and the credit crunch, excellent companies, such as Aspen Pumps, continue to show the country, the media and our political masters that UK business and industry are still world-beaters in many fields. International Trade is delighted to have had the opportunity to reward and show off these great British companies.
