Huntingdon Fusion Techniques were thrilled to be announced as Finalists in the ‘Export of Business of the Year’ category at the Welsh Business Awards at the start of 2020.
The Awards Ceremony took place at Cardiff City Hall where business leaders gathered for a drinks reception before taking their seats in the beautiful banqueting hall. Serenaded by a saxophonist and trumpet players everybody waited in anticipation for the Awards part of the evening, hosted by Gethin Jones, to get underway.
We are very pleased to announce that we won ‘Export Business of the Year’. We are delighted to be recognised for this Award as 85% of our sales turnover is made up of export business. Our business model is to sell our range of pipe purging equipment via a network of Exclusive Distributors of which we have 45 worldwide. Much of our time is devoted to assisting these Distributors by making joint visits to customers to perform demonstrations, attending Exhibitions and participating in Welsh Government led Trade Missions.
Ken Skates, Minister for Economy, Transport and North Wales, presented the Award to CEO Georgia Gascoyne and Technical Sales Manager, Luke Keane.
The icing on the cake was the final Award of the evening, when Heather Myers, CEO South Wales Chamber of Commerce, announced that Georgia was being given the prestigious Presidents Award saying her dedication to the business and drive for success is commendable. Paul Slevin, President, South Wales Chamber of Commerce presented an astonished Georgia with the Award. The team at HFT could not be more proud of her achievement.
Thank you to the South Wales Chamber of Commerce for a wonderful evening of celebrations, with many Welsh business success stories and an overwhelming sense of pride in the room.
