FIRESAFE ‘Highly Commended’ in International Trade Awards

Clayton-Le-Moors, UK – Firesafe Fire Rated Ductwork Limited entered the International Trade Club (ITC) Awards for the first time in 2018. The competition is run by the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce and companies in the region are invited to tell their success story – supported by hard financials and statistics for 2018 – and outline their company ethos, aims and aspirations for the future.

There were 3 International Trade Award categories – Newcomer, Importer and Exporter.
Given our business model, the only fit was ‘Outstanding Exporter Achievement’.
We were pipped into 2nd place but pleased to receive the ‘Highly Commended’ accolade at the ITC Awards luncheon held at the Mercure Dunkenhalgh Hotel, Clayton-Le-Moors, Lancashire. (More here). A creditable result for our first attempt.
