Erodex appoints dedicated export manager

EDM graphite and tooling specialist Erodex has appointed a dedicated export manager after achieving a record 54% growth in export sales. The move follows a string of new contract wins with clients in countries including Israel and the opening of a new $2m tooling facility in Virginia, USA.

Director Steve Rolinson says: “As a result of high levels of demand for our graphite products and tooling solutions overseas, we are looking to continue growing export sales and exploring new markets. We have already seen evidence of this over the past 12 months and we believe that now is the right time to appoint a dedicated export manager.”
In addition to managing the day-to-day operations within a newly established department, Laura Collins will ensure that Erodex fully complies with HMRC regulations and those within the diverse range of non-EU countries to which Erodex exports.
“I have always worked in an international trade environment, primarily in export and with a focus on implementing processes and procedures,” she says. “Export sales at Erodex are growing quickly, accounting for an ever increasing amount of overall turnover, meaning that it makes sense to establish a dedicated export department to manage this work. Different countries come with their own complexities or requirements, and as a team we are now well placed to deal with these and play our part in facilitating the growth in overseas trade during what is an exciting time for the company. I am delighted to be on board and very much looking forward to the future.”
