Oakland International MD, Dean Attwell, says: “The day was a real success. Our positive experience of running this type of export retail event is evident in the business success between the two countries that follows. This is the third UK–Ireland trade event that we have hosted since we set up our Irish business partnership in Ashbourne, nearDublin nearly three years ago, and our business continues to grow.”

 

Discussions on the day dealt with the realities for potential exporters to Ireland, and how perceived barriers can be overcome when entering the Irish market, together with the many opportunities for growth that exporting and doing business with Ireland represents.

 

Dean Attwell adds: “Our intention is to continue a rolling programme of UK and Ireland seminars in the spring, extending the focus to incorporate European producers and manufacturers that have an existing UK presence but as yet have not entered the Irish market.”

 

A multi temperature supply chain specialist, Oakland International operates depots in both the UK and Ireland and through its network partners has reach across most of Europe.
