Congratulations to UK Exporter of the Year AGI Ltd!

November 28th, 2017|Categories: News, Uncategorised|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Well done to Aeronautical & General Instruments Limited (AGI) of Poole for winning the UK Exporter of the Year title at the Dorset Business Awards.

Our Managing Director Simon Boyd presented the award at a gala dinner and ceremony at the Bournemouth International Centre.

More than 700 guests watched as Simon announced AGI as the winners live on stage. They narrowly beat fellow finalists Actisense and Trimetals to the title.

The UK Exporter of the Year Award was new for this year’s Dorset Business Awards. As a successful exporter to more than 140 countries over nearly a century, we felt it was important to recognise and encourage other Dorset firms involved in international trade.

AGI were worthy winners and we hope more businesses will be inspired to expand their horizons and look to the many exciting trade opportunities in growing economies across the world.

“From a business point of view there was good news with the reduction in Corporation Tax to 17%. The support for social care is welcome although a fundamental reform of the whole system is needed in the long term.

“The rise in the National Living Wage is also welcome because we believe in a decent wage for the UK workforce.

“Low productivity is a perennial issue and some companies prefer to employ cheap labour rather than invest in new technology, which is one of the measures required to help productivity levels rise.

“Funding for infrastructure improvements must always be a priority. I will be writing to East Dorset District Council and Christchurch Borough Council with an offer to meet to brainstorm ideas to win a slice of the £690m prize money available […]
