A HILSEA firm has been crowned winner of the EEF South East Region Outstanding Export Award.

Daniamant Ltd has seen its export strategy lead to 49 per cent growth in export sales during the past two years.

It produces survivor location lights for the marine, military, civil and aviation markets.

Exports now represent 60 per cent of the company’s turnover.

Kevin Rough, general manager of Daniamant Ltd, said: ‘Winning this award is excellent news for the company.

‘During the last three years we have overcome a number of challenges, particularly in gaining approval to our new product in the USA.

‘However, with a clear strategy, smart processes and good product development, backed up with a lot of patience, communication and hard work, very pleasing results have prevailed.’
