Rosehill Rail’s parent company has been recognised as an Export Champion by the Department for International Trade (DIT) following its continued expansion into a range of overseas markets. As an Export Champion Rosehill Polymers Group, the company will offer practical advice and encouragement to other businesses in the Northern Powerhouse Region looking to break into new export markets.
The Export Champion Community is part of the DIT’s Exporting Strategy, launched by the International Trade Secretary in February 2019 following requests from businesses wishing to receive peer-to-peer exporting support. The initiative is designed to get businesses thinking globally by raising the profile of successful exporters and normalising exporting across the country. By the end of 2020, there will be up to 150 Export Champions active across the north of England.
Over the last 20 years, Rosehill Rail has seen its innovative engineered rubber rail crossings systems and anti-trespass solutions adopted by rail networks across the globe. During this time the company has established an extensive global customer base with distributors in over 21 countries and is looking to grow its reach even further.
Andrew Knight (pictured), Export Manager at Rosehill Rail, said: ‘Over half of what we manufacture is exported and it’s a growing part of our business, so we’re delighted to be recognised by the Department for International Trade for our success in this area. We’re continuing to see strong demand across our product
