OMEX Agrifluids is celebrating being named as winners of a Queen's Award for Enterprise - The UK's highest accolade for business success.
OMEX Agrifluids received the award for International Trade. This was in recognition of achieving increased year on year export figures. In fact, since 2009 direct overseas and domestic sales for OMEX Agrifluids have doubled to more than £11 million.
Established in the UK in 1993, the company has grown to be a leader in plant nutrition fertilizer technology worldwide and now exports to more than 65 countries. Despite competing with local and international manufacturers, including businesses from countries such as China, India, Russia, Western Europe and Brazil, OMEX's flexibility, product innovation and customer service are the key elements to sustaining high levels of export growth.
“To receive The Queen’s Award for International Trade is a great honour and demonstrates OMEX Agrifluids commitment to developing a successful business that utilises local expertise and facilities,” says the company’s export director for Europe and Asia Peter Prentis.
