Yes it’s good to see how companies can do it if properly prepared. The article may have been sponsored by the government but the businesses are real.
Lets look at these 3 companies shall we?RS Aqua
: RS Aqua were founded in 1982, supplying high-specification marine instrumentation and submersible systems to scientists and engineers.
They have multiple global partners, so I guess they are ok with finding business abroad.Aqua & Rock:
High end fashion, where a tee shirt costs £38, and a table lamp, over £600. A British company, that as far as I can tell, only posts things abroad, but they do say, *Please note customs charges are not included.
They used UK recycled items to make their clothes, and only export via the mail.Control Techniques:
A Nidec brand, is the global drives specialist with a long entrepreneurial history. More recently, we have the support of a large international parent company, Nidec, and its other brands. We are a challenger with a big name in the drives industry.
Control Techniques in Newtown, Powys, which employs 530 people, has enjoyed a boost to its business from the weaker pound which has made their products cheaper abroad, but any trade barriers would impact on their business.
The company was bought by the Japanese corporation Nidec after the Brexit vote and manufactures variable speed drives, which are used on production lines. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-43543030
So I guess not your average exporters/importers, no food producers, not relying on EU countries, 2 have global, non-EU owners/partners, one only exports via mail.
