The Boss Design Group wins leading Export Award

Following its triumph at the recent National Recycling Awards, The Boss Design Group continues its winning streak as it celebrates achieving The Furniture Makers’ Company’s inaugural Export Award. This latest award is in recognition of the company’s outstanding efforts in developing business overseas.

The award was presented at a special Export and Growth event organised by British Furniture Confederation at the House of Commons on Tuesday 11th October 2016. A second presentation took place at the Furniture Makers’ Royal Charter Dinner at Skinners’ Hall, London on Tuesday 25th October 2016, held to celebrate The Furniture Makers’ Company being incorporated by Royal Charter in 2013.  

Boss Design’s export activities were praised by the expert judging panel for having dramatically improved the company’s performance, growth, competitiveness, customer perception, and staff engagement.

Manufacturing Guild Mark Chairman Paul von der Heyde said: “The Boss Design Group has significantly increased export sales throughout Europe, the Middle East and Far East, and the USA, through the investment in manufacturing facilities, manufacturing licensees, and precision geographical targeted marketing. With 20% of its employees now allied to international business, and 70% of projected growth emanating from exports, the company is a revered international brand that is committed to long-term international business growth. They are a worthy winner.” 

Commenting on this latest award, Commercial Director at The Boss Design Group, Michael Holmes said: “We are delighted to receive this award that honours our international achievements. Our determination to make Boss Design a global brand shows no slowdown as demonstrated by our recent investment in manufacturing facilities in North Carolina, USA. We are immensely proud to be flying the flag for British manufacture in export markets, and will continue to make international growth a priority.”

The Furniture Makers’ Company is the British furnishing industry’s charity and patron. The Export Award was launched in 2016 to recognise excellence in promoting and selling British manufactured furniture, bedding and furnishings to increase overseas markets.
