Ginho Group has been named as the winner of the International Trade category at the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce annual business awards.

Sponsored by the Department of International Trade, this award recognises companies who excel in exporting by paying particular attention to the whole process, including developing overseas opportunities, strategic partnerships, and the overall benefit the international activity brings to Staffordshire.

This is particular recognition for supply chain manager Joshua Hancock-Brown and his supply chain team who have led the way during Brexit and Covid, delivering great service to customers despite the challenges faced.

MD of Ginho Group Europe Shaun Gray said: “I’m incredibly proud of how we have navigated the last 18 months to ensure supply to our customers across Europe. The International Trade award is great recognition for the team who have worked tirelessly through Brexit and Covid-19 to maintain supply to our customers.

“Thanks also go to our customers, suppliers, and local communities – we couldn’t win awards such as these without our great partnerships which continue to play such a vital role in our success.”

Announcing Ginho Group as the winner on the night, one of the judges said:

“It’s been a difficult 18 months and companies trading internationally really had to raise their game – it was a humbling experience to read and judge the entries which were all at a tremendous level. The winning company Ginho, strategised, it planned ahead, and it took Brexit in its step. We couldn’t believe the steps they had taken; it was phenomenal. They used their bespoke manufacturing plant to bring products into the UK and what they did to change their certificate of origin was very, very impressive.”

Congratulations to all the award winners and those shortlisted on the night – it was a brilliant evening of celebration. You can read about the awards here Awards – Staffordshire Chambers.
