Ultraseal International has scooped Exporter of the Year for the second time running at the Midlands Business Awards 2015.
The Coventry-based company, which exports to more than 35 countries worldwide, retained its title in the SME category.
Many of Ultraseal’s customers are automotive OEMs and Tier One suppliers as the company is a global leader in finding solutions to porosity in cast metal parts – a problem that can affect automotive parts.
Managing Director Gary Lloyd picked up the trophy – an Oscars-style statuette – at a sparkling gala dinner at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.
Praising staff after the ceremony, Mr Lloyd said: “To win this award for the second year running, given the tough competition, is indeed a major achievement.
“I feel very proud of the ongoing team performance that has resulted in this well-deserved recognition – both in Coventry and overseas.
“My congratulations and special thanks go to everyone whose daily contributions led to this fantastic achievement – including the Norman Hay Board who continue to support and applaud Ultraseal’s ongoing hunger for export growth and success.”
With a history of innovation, Ultraseal designs and manufactures Vacuum Impregnation equipment and porosity sealants that together provide a permanent and reliable solution to porosity in cast metal parts.
All of its Research & Development, and production of sealants, is carried out in Coventry, UK, and the company also has Joint Ventures in India and China, an office in Japan, an operation in the United States and a renowned job processing shop, Sterr & Eder Industrieservice GmbH, in Germany.
