Bute scoops export award
Upholstery fabric manufacturer Bute Fabrics has been awarded a top export award.
The company was one of just 126 companies to win a Queen's Award for Enterprise, with Bute winning the International Trade export award.
Established in 1947, Bute's established export markets are the US, the Benelux countries and Scandinavia, with new sales agents in other territories including Russia, Italy, Singapore, Hong Kong and Korea. It now employs more than 40 people.
'We're delighted and honoured to have been recognised for the growth in our export sales over the last three years,' says James MacAdam Sprint, Bute md.
'Our focus in developing the strategic markets of the USA, Scandinavia and the Benelux countries has resulted in securing the future for all of the mill's staff.'
