Prestigious award recognises Norwich firm’s international growth
A Norwich-based food process equipment manufacturer has been recognised for its growth across several international markets.
Fabcon Food Systems has won the regional International Expansion of the Year category at the 2018 Barclays Entrepreneurs Awards.
The business, which has its factory in Hellesdon, has built a large network of global customers since it was founded in 2015 – with Fabcon supplying and installing its handling and processing equipment to customers in the UK and into mainland Europe, Africa and Australia.
Recent highlights include Fabcon’s installations in the Middle East, Norway and Romania.
Trevor Howard, managing director of Fabcon Food Systems, said: “It’s a really proud moment for us to be recognised for our expansion across the world as we work with a growing number of snack manufacturers.
“Sales abroad now account for around 50 per cent of our revenue and we know that customers really value quality, innovative, British-built machinery.
“In our short history we’ve created a brand which is recognised across the globe but more importantly, we’re being held up by snack manufacturers as a trusted partner who they immediately turn to. It’s a fantastic milestone for everyone here at Fabcon.”
The annual Barclays Entrepreneurs Awards celebrate entrepreneurs for their exceptional innovation, and for creating social change and growth that moves the UK forward.
