SHROPSHIRE BUSINESS AWARDS: Sirane shortlisted for export award
SIRANE has been shortlisted for the International Trade Through Export award in the Shropshire Business Awards organised by the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce.
The company now exports across the globe, and earlier this year the food packaging division’s export sales exceeded domestic UK sales for the first time the company’s history.
We’re exporting as far afield as New Zealand, and to countries as varied in size as the US and Liechenstein, with many export products sold into the fruit sector.
Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Our export business has been steadily growing for a number of years, and we’ve had a number of people, both as agents/distributors and here in Telford, working hard on introducing our products to new markets overseas, particularly packaging solutions for fruit.
“We’re now starting to see the fruits of our labour, with well-established regular overseas trade in around 25 countries, and orders also coming in from many more nations.
“Food may be very different across the world, and the supply chains may vary in the way they work, but ultimately the problems experienced are often similar. Effective packaging solutions, shelf-life extension, convenience for the consumer…. everyone wants the same.”
Sirane is also expanding its international presence in other ways. Additional manufacturing is already operational in Antalya, Turkey and Guadalajara, Mexico, and within the next month a third overseas site, close to the Russian capital Moscow will also begin manufacturing.
We also have companies successfully established in South Africa and Poland.
Sirane is an innovative food packaging development-to-manufacture company, with vast expertise in absorbency and material science, selling packaging solutions including absorbent pads, oven and microwave-ready packaging, protective packaging and more. The company also has a medical division – Enaris – and a horticultural division.
Product developments such as cushioned absorbent pads for soft-fruit and anti-microbial absorbent packaging have helped generate significant interest from overseas buyers.
The Shropshire Business Awards finals will be held on Friday, June 23rd at the International Centre, Telford. 2017 is the 17th time the popular awards have been held.
