What More UK Limited the UKs largest manufacturer of plastic housewares, storage and garden products, have officially received the prestigious Queens Award For Enterprise in International Trade 2014 during a ceremony at their head offices in Lancashire.
The Lord-Lieutenant of Lancashire, The Lord Shuttleworth KCVO, presented the award, granted by Her Majesty The Queen infront of over a hundred guests including local mayors, MPs and local business leaders who were invited to the ceremony.
“This award recognizes our outstanding levels of excellence in product design and manufacturing,” said Tony Grimshaw, Director at What More UK Limited, “and goes to all 185 employees of What More UK Limited, who all contributed to write the What More story. Up until yesterday we exported to 49 countries world wide, and today we can proudly announce we have 4 new countries on board, – Russia, Romania, Bulgaria and Croatia, taking us to 53. This news clearly demonstrates the outstanding manufacturing prowess of the North West of England and its ability to penetrate and develop new markets all over the world for their products.”
The Lord Shuttleworth also enjoyed a tour of the impressive factory.
“I am extremely impressed with What More UK Limited and what they have achieved. Their potential for further growth overseas is excellent, which is really good for Lancashire. Everyone in Lancashire should be very proud of them.”
Last year the company opened its latest development, a 101,710sq.ft distribution facility– the first phase of a £8m expansion plan and will be shortly followed with another 88,000sq.ft construction, on the same site.
Both developments have enabled the company to bring their manufacturing and distribution operations under one roof, taking the total space to over 450,000sq.ft.
