TVBMA Export Award

The gala evening for TVBMA 2010 took place at the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre, Madejski Stadium, Reading, on Thursday, November 18, compered by Nadine Dereza.

More than 300 people packed the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre to hear guest speaker Lord Paddy Ashdown and the results of the 2010 Thames Valley Business Magazine Awards.

The awards were sponsored by The Royal Bank of Scotland, Pitmans, Deloitte, James Cowper, Vail Williams and UK Trade & Investment South East.

One of the awards was the Thames Valley Export Award, sponsored by UKTI South East. Amongst tough competition, this award was won by Hansford Sensors Ltd. of High Wycombe.

Although it is only four years since the company was formed by Managing Director, Chris Hansford, the company has grown consistantly over this time and exports over 80% of its turnover.

Chris Hansford commented, "With the downturn in the economy in the UK, we set our sights on overseas markets and now sell our vibration sensors into over 40 countries. Asia has been particularly fruitful, with an incredible rise in products sold into the Australian marketplace, thanks to the hard work of our distributor in New South Wales."

He continued, " We are now working at attacking other export areas and we have recently visited Mexico and the USA, discussing how our products can be applied into the maintenance management of industrial plant and machinery ."

Chris also praised the team back at their new premises on the Sands Industrial Estate. "Their enthusiasm, efforts and dedication have all contributed to the growth and success of the company."

Awards chairman David Murray said: "I can't remember such an outstanding group of finalists as we have gathered this year. The shortlisted companies demonstrate that, despite a very tough year for the economy, there are success stories that transcend the downturn, that shine a light when it might look gloomy."

Well done and congratulations to all at Hansford Sensors Ltd. on achieving this prestigious award.
