JFD shortlisted as finalist at the HSBC Scottish Export Awards 2017
JFD is pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted within the Large Exporter of the Year category in the HSBC Scottish Export Awards 2017.
The Large Exporter category recognises outstanding achievements from companies with a turnover greater than £15m. Growth, market penetration and the application of innovative marketing strategies are all factors which will contribute in picking the winner.
JFD exports hundreds, if not thousands, of products and services globally every year. 2016 marked an incredible year for the company with the signing of the Indian Navy Submarine Rescue contract worth £193m and the 500m saturation diving system contract for Shanghai Salvage worth £35m. We also announced a new joint venture between JFD and Wuhu which further strengthened our presence and offering within the Chinese market.
JFD has grown substantially within the past few years thanks to some strategic company acquisitions. JFD acquired Singapore based saturation diving system manufacturer, LEXMAR, in August 2016 with the aim of strengthening their position in the eastern hemisphere as part of the company’s long term development plan.
This is the second export award the company has been nominated for this year, having been a finalist within the Global Exports category at the Subsea UK Awards in February.
We want to wish all the finalists the best of luck at the ceremony on the 22nd March.
