    Durbin shortlisted for International Trade Award

    10 December 2012

    Durbin PLC was shortlisted for The International Trade Company of the Year Award at this year’s International Trade Awards 2012.

    Now entering their fifth year, the International Trade Awards, sponsored by American Express Foreign Exchange Services, are the only UK wide business awards to exclusively recognise the excellence achieved by the UK’s leading exporters and importers. Despite the challenges posed by current global economic conditions, UK companies are still competing on the International stage and the 2012 International Trade Awards celebrates these ventures and successes. Minister of State for Trade and Investment, Lord Green, who introduced last year’s gala lunch and awards, said that "exporting is ‘not just good for Britain’, but that it is ‘essential for Britain’."

    Leslie Morgan, CEO of Durbin PLC said “as a local employer established 50 years ago, we are experienced in exporting pharmaceuticals and medical equipment around the world. My team and I are absolutely delighted to be short listed for two of this year's International Trade Awards. We never forget that our company ethos is 'saving lives by saving time' and are always proud when we can make a difference.”

    Applicants were competing in four categories, the Small to Medium Sized Company of the Year Award, Excellence in Innovation Award, New Frontiers Award and Company of the Year Award.

    "The standard was incredibly high, particularly for the main award where the judges were torn between some very impressive entries. There were some very difficult choices to make," said Rocco Magno, General Manager FX IP at American Express Europe Limited.

    "It is pleasing to see such a high standard across the board as it shows that there is real hope for the economy, and that there are a huge number of excellent businesses out there."
