Export Award

by msecadm4921

Export sales totalling £3.5m have secured Kalamazoo Security Print the title, “Exporter of the Year 2006” in this year’s West Midlands Passport Awards.

Sponsored by Continental Airlines, the awards mark the achievements of members of the Midlands World Trade Forum and new or novice exporters that have been helped by UK Trade and Investment’s Passport scheme.  Kalamazoo is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Adare Group.

Export sales, which account for 22.6 per cent of Kalamazoo’s £15.5m turnover, have been generated by the company’s export team working with 27 agents and distributors covering 35 countries worldwide. Kalamazoo’s largest market is Africa, which accounts for 80 per cent of its total export turnover. This year, Kalamazoo secured its largest single export contract to date – an order to produce more than 12 million ballot papers for the Ugandan Government’s local elections. Kalamazoo also produced 60 million cheques for over 60 per cent of the Nigerian banks last year.

What they say

Managing Director, Richard Bentley, said: “We are thrilled to have won this award, which is a testament to the heritage, skills and experience that Kalamazoo Security Print has developed over its 100 year history.  This award has been made possible through the tenacity and hard work of all of Kalamazoo’s employees. The company is committed to growing over the next three years and export represents a significant opportunity for us – we are geared to capitalise on that opportunity.  Kalamazoo Security Print is a fine example of a West Midlands company with the right mix of people and products to be successful in the burgeoning global economy.”
