We're Open For Exports, Claim Kommerling
While the weakening of the pound has had considerable headline news, the fact is that this will be good for UK businesses who export goods overseas, because these will become less expensive to foreign buyers, claim Kömmerling.
With the C70 window and door system, PremiLine patio door and vertical sliding sash window all produced in hot climate mix, the opportunities for exports are strong. Sales to Asia, Africa and Australasia are already prevalent, while Kömmerling are also looking at sales channels for WarmCore in Australasia, North America and beyond.
According to the Financial Times, the pound has struggled to recover since the Brexit referendum and it’s fallen further in recent weeks as the markets react to the mini budget that was presented by Kwasi Kwarteng, the new chancellor on 23rd September. With economic uncertainties in the UK likely to impact currency for some time yet, the opportunities for exports will remain significant in the months and years to come.
Robert Thiroff, managing director of profine UK and executive director, international markets of profine Group commented: ‘There’s never been a better time in which to look at export opportunities for Kommerling, given that we already manufacture several systems in a hot climate mix and the fact that Warmcore has become competitive as a next generation hybrid platform. Fabricators can look at the more immediate markets of Europe, while we can supply bar length or even finished goods in the form of the VS and Warmcore further afield.’
