Susana Cordoba, Head of International Trade at Greater Manchester Chamber, said: “We are thrilled to have won the Excellence in International Trade award for the second year on the run. With the focus so much on Brexit it’s crucial that the day to day work we deliver at the Chamber remains the very best for our members and others. In addition we have expanded our work in supporting overseas delegations, access to overseas markets and also played a leading role in the development of new services to help and assist businesses trading overseas. Trade is a key part of what Chambers do and this award reflects our approach to this in Greater Manchester.”
Commenting on the win for Chamber member Fractory Ltd, Stella Bowdell, Director of Membership at the Chamber, said: “This is a great win for Fractory as a panel of judges have identified what they do as being the very best in the UK and against very stiff competition from right across the country. It’s a great example of the strength of real business in this country and also of the diverse nature of the Greater Manchester economy.”
