Supplying its range of gripping aids to over 50 countries, The Active Hands Company has been commended by the Government for its export activity.

The manufacturer of aids for those with limited dexterity has been working with the Department for International Trade to raise its presence and distribution network overseas, achieving 25 percent export growth in the last year.

Recognising its efforts, the Department awarded Active Hands with the Board of Trade Award – a prize nominated and selected by civil servants from the Department.

Clare Reynolds, Marketing Manager at Active Hands, praised the Department’s International Trade Advisor, Pete West, for helping the company trade overseas, including help attend overseas exhibitions, attract new business and negotiate export regulations.

The Active Hands Company was presented with an engraved Board of Trade medallion and a framed certificate, as well as now being able to use the award winner logo on its website and products.
