Export Unlocked was established to address a void in the market for a single organisation to provide more than just “advice” on all aspects of export. The current UK Overseas trade position, consequential Government commitment to helping more UK companies export and the founders’ own observations and feedback from businesses, were proof enough that existing agencies did not appear to be providing enough tangible help.
From the existing plethora of export consultants & advisors, it appeared that no single agency offered a service which was based on experts being seconded into a business to facilitate the unlocking of its export potential. This might involve hands-on assistance with research, strategy development, finance for export, export documentation and processes, logistics and even selling & marketing the client’s products on their behalf. Businesses new to export might need help in all these areas, whist others might only need help with one or two aspects. Whatever the requirement, the mission of Export Unlocked was to provide the necessary hands-on assistance to make it happen.
Located in offices close to both London and Manchester, the team is able to provide a breadth and depth of high quality service at very competitive rates. Working alongside the UKTI, UKEF & Santander Bank, Export Unlocked can quickly access any available grants or other funding for export. Multi-lingual staff, long standing associations with reputable carriers and agents/contacts in all the major countries, provide additional benefits that other agencies usually need to outsource at a cost.
Obviously the success of this approach is directly dependant upon the quality and experience of the experts themselves. The founding directors brought with them a vast amount of knowledge, experience, expertise and contacts from the world of export and happily avail themselves to those businesses seeking help. It was soon realised however that demand is such that additional experts would very quickly be required. To this end, highly focused, professional, committed, enthusiastic and experienced Associates are joining the fold. All Associates undergo a rigorous selection process to ensure a high standard of service delivery. We understand that it is very important that the right Expert is assigned in relation to the client needs and our Resource Management system will ensure this.
Our Mission at Export Unlocked is simple; “We make it happen”.
