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.
