The league table ranks Britain’s small and medium-sized (SME) companies with the fastest-growing international sales.  PA which appears for the first time achieved an impressive 57% increase in export sales to reach 47th place.

PA which offers industry leading packaging technology to a number of markets but predominantly the food industry is on track to double its sales turnover in an ambitious 5 year period.  Innovation and the introduction of unique patented technology has been key to the company’s success in the last two years taking it beyond competitors by offering the highest speed tray sealing machinery in the world.

By working with a number of key distributors in Northern Europe, North America, the Middle East and Australia the business has been able to share its technology, packaging knowledge and knowhow with food manufacturers and fresh produce packers in these markets. The increasing popularity of packaged goods in these overseas markets has fuelled the rapid growth in export sales for PA.

Export sales is an important aspect of this strategy and we are delighted to have been identified as one of the top 100 SME exporters in the UK.”
