Exports play a significant role in Shipham Valves’ business
5The Humber LEP approached us earlier this year about creating a video case study highlighting our exporting experiences.
We were delighted to share our experiences and background in exporting, our involvement in export markets, why it is important to our business, and how we have worked closely with the Humber LEP.
The film crew were granted access to our new manufacturing facilities, which now provide the business with greater control and full new machine shop capabilities following the installation of eight new machines including cutting-edge boring, milling and drilling machinery and technology.
Shipham Valves exporting experience
With over 90 years of valve manufacturing experience, Shipham Valves have built strong foundations to support long-term relationships with a global network of partners in warm-water regions such as the Middle East, Australasia, South-East Asia and India.
As with several other UK businesses, Shipham Valves contributes to the face of British engineering and manufacturing, allowing the opportunities to capabilities and providing a perception of our capabilities and skills base.
Support is on hand
When thinking about exporting products such as valves or services, there are various factors to consider, it will present different challenges and businesses must adapt and have a slightly different mindset, as our Managing Director Rob Moulds explains.
Rob continues to mention that some businesses may not consider exporting as a viable business opportunity or are hesitant due to a lack of knowledge or confidence, however, organisations like the LEP and the DTI can support organisations with this journey.
We would like to thank the teams at Humber LEP and Jay Jay Media for their help.
