A Staffordshire manufacturer has added the 101st country to its growing list of export locations around the world.
Addfield Environmental Systems, which designs and manufactures a range of solid waste incinerators, has begun exporting to Tajikistan, a Central Asian country bordered by Afghanistan and China which was formerly part of the Soviet Union.
Tajikistan has taken delivery of one of Addfield’s medical waste incinerators.
James Grant (pictured), business development director at Addfield, said: “We have always taken great pride in our international growth as every country has its own unique barriers to trade that we have had to overcome.
“In recent years we have installed machines as far afield as Chile, Australia and even the Ascension Island. It has been a fantastic few years of growth that shows no sign of slowing, with a number of new countries placing orders for the new year taking our number up even further.”
Addfield recently joined the Department for International Trade’s ‘Exporting is Great’ campaign as an ‘Exporting Champion’ for Midlands Engine.
The Burntwood-based company had been invited to help those looking to take their businesses international, after a number of years of successful exporting.
Addfield has joined forces with 50 other companies from across the East and West Midlands, who are collectively supporting businesses planning to expand their horizons worldwide. The champions are delivering first-hand advice and experiences through a number of events running this year.
