Sykes Group has won the Excellence in Export Award at the 2008 New South Wales Business Chamber Awards held this week at Big Top at Sydney’s, Luna Park.
The company, a Cardiff-based manufacturer of auto-prime dewatering pumps, exports more than half of its equipment around the world.
Sykes’ export sales grew 30% in the 2006-2007 financial year and 20% in 2007-2008.
“Over the last few years export has become a larger focus of Sykes Group, and it is a great moment to be recognised amongst other outstanding businesses within the state and awarded the Export Award,” Sykes Group financial director Allan Gibson said.
“It is especially pleasing given our head office is located outside of a metropolitan area and therefore we often come up against additional pressures in relation to tighter timeframes and freight considerations.”
The award is affirmation of all of the work put into exporting at Sykes Group, but there is still more to be done, Gibson said.
“Despite the fact we have seen great success exporting, there are still many markets offshore that we have yet to tap into,” he said.
“We are excited about the future and continuing to provide our customers with the best possible dewatering solutions.”
